Jumbo Conforming Rates Expected to Decrease Further...

This just reported by C.A.R.


Rates on bigger mortgages finally should come down

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac recently issued loan underwriting criteria and will start buying loans of up to $729,750 from lenders on May 4, which some industry analysts believe will result in lower rates.


This week, Wells Fargo started offering conforming loans of up to $729,750, and Bank of America will begin offering them by mid-May


Historically, rates on loans higher than $417,000 – often referred to as jumbo conforming loans -- are one-fourth to one-third of a percentage point higher than rates on $417,000 or lower loans..  By Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac agreeing to guarantee loans of up to $729,750, rates on jumbo conforming loans likely will be comparable to the rates offered on loans of $417,000 and lower.
