Colorado jumbo mortgages are perfect for situations where the amount of the mortgage or home loan exceeds current limits set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (currently $647,200). Jumbo home loans are not backed by the government and typically tend to be .375 to .50% higher than conventional mortgages. Although interest rates are on the rise, 15 and 30-year jumbo mortgage rates in Colorado are still near all time lows. This can be a perfect time to purchase the high end luxury property you’ve been dreaming of. 

Due to rapidly rising home values in Denver, Castle Rock, Vail, Aspen, Steamboat Springs and other neighborhoods, jumbo mortgages are becoming a common financing product in these markets. Jumbo loans will typically require a higher credit score and lower debt to income ratios than other mortgage loans. In addition, borrowers will have to show higher liquid reserves.
