5% Down Payment Jumbo Mortgage Purchase in Pennsylvania

Jumbo - 5% Down Payment.jpg

Home buyers who wish to purchase a home and borrow more than the Pennsylvania Conventional Loan Limit of $484,350 are often faced with additional down payment requirements. Typically, 10% Down Payments or even 20% Down Payments are standard in the Jumbo Mortgage world.

Jumbo Mortgages are Available with just a 5% Down Payment

Even when home buyers have a substantial down payment available, they often do not want plunk this money down on a home. Outside of selling the house, funds tied up in a home as down payment can only be accessed later with an additional home equity loan or cash out refinance. This is not always cost effective. Minimizing down payment and letting this money perform in other segments of an individual portfolio often makes more sense for long term asset growth.
