Jumbo Loans are one option, as well taking out multiple mortgages. However, the most favorable option is often choosing a super conforming loan. These loans allow for a higher limit than normal but usually provide lower rates than a Jumbo Loan.

The following are other benefits you will reap from choosing a high balance and super conforming mortgage:

  • Single Package Deal: Instead of shopping around for multiple mortgages and paying multiple fees, you can utilize one package deal. This saves you not only money but also a large amount of time and hassle.
  • Variety Of Eligible Properties: When you opt for a super conforming loan, you have the option of purchasing a variety of property types. This mortgage can be used for single-family residences, condos, multi-family units, and even planned unit developments.

When You Should Use A Super Conforming Loan

If you are thinking about utilizing a super conforming loan, there are a variety of situations in which it is the ideal choice. This unique loan type was designed for those who are purchasing in high-cost areas where a normal loan limit would hinder a purchase.

Refinance Your Home

Not only is this loan ideal for someone purchasing a home in a high-cost area, it can also be utilized for those who wish to refinance their home. Instead of utilizing multiple mortgages, you can refinance with one super conforming loan, leading to less hassle and fewer fees.

Purchase An Investment Property

You can also utilize a super conforming loan to purchase an investment property. Since many multi-family units exceed the costs that a normal loan would cover, a super conforming loan can help you purchase a multi-unit property in order to utilize it as an investment. If you have been contemplating creating passive income for yourself in a hot rental market, this loan type could be the perfect fit.
