2013 Ends on High Note for Real Estate

The real estate industry has changed dramatically in the past few years.

Jumbo loans loom large in luxury housing

Jumbo mortgages are providing the housing market recovery with a boost, according to industry experts. Buyers looking at luxury properties currently can obtain jumbo mortgages with interest rates that are on par with - and sometimes even lower than - conventional loans.

Moreover, the new qualified mortgage regulations (QM) don't apply to jumbos, which makes them a more flexible option for buyers who want things like interest-only loans or who have a high net worth but complicated finances.

Contact me if you would like to explore the current market rates.
