Typically, if you borrow more than $1,500,000, the lender will require two appraisals to ensure the value and marketability of the property. In addition, jumbo mortgage lending typically requires a bit more paperwork. Be prepared to provide the following documents:

  • Last two years W2s and federal tax returns (all pages) for all borrowers
  • Last two pay stubs for all borrowers
  • Statements for the last two months for all bank and investment accounts; this must document sufficient funds for your down payment and at least six to twelve months of mortgage payments in reserve
  • Copy of the executed purchase agreement for your new home
  • Financial information on all other properties owned including mortgage, tax and insurance information

Now is a great time to be a jumbo mortgage borrower. Banks continue to roll out the red carpet for the more affluent borrower. But don’t expect the process to be total easy. The underwriting process is fairly rigid as lending institutions want to make sure the I’s are dotted and the T’s are crossed for loan amounts that large.
