New Jumbos: Fannie or FHA?

The new Stimulus Package loan limits are here, and we have had a couple weeks to see how the banks would digest the new loan limits (up to $729,750 in certain markets).   For instance, the new loan limit in Los Angeles, CA is $729,750, while the limit for San Diego, CA is $697,500. The Seattle area in Washington, including King, Pierce & Snohomish Counties are now capped at $567,500.

So what is the difference between the larger FHA loans and Fannie Mae's new Jumbo offerings.

Well for starters, FHA only requires 3% down payment vs Fannie Mae's 5% minimum. There is another advantage to using FHA when the property is in a "declining market" such as most of California, Florida, or Michigan. In the Declining Market, Fannie Mae requires another 5% down for a total of 10% down payment required. Regardless of credit score. This is the minimum.

FHA guidelines are far more predictable than Fannie Mae's are right now due to problems for Banks to sell loans in the secondary market. These problems have resulted in constant changes in qualification guidelines & parameters for Fannie Mae loans. Meanwhile, FHA loans remain true to form, since they are guaranteed by HUD, paid for by the Mortgage Insurance on each loan, these have not had to change as dramatically to keep up with the secondary marketability and the all mighty bank liquidity requirements. (IE, bad loans on the banks books hurt liquidity since they can't sell them for what they paid for them or their original value).

FHA Secure offers borrowers who fell behind on their ARM loan to refinance into a safe, secure & affordable FHA loan.   FHA Secure even allows some mortgage lates, whereas the Fannie Mae Jumbo product allows zero lates.
