High Balance Conforming Loans- High-Balance Conforming loans are still under the conforming loan category and purchased by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, but allow for a higher loan amount due to higher home prices in certain areas.

Typically conforming (even high-balance conforming) loans have better rates, terms and a lower down payment than Jumbos, that's why it's good to know your options here.
Jumbo Loans- For loan amounts over $484,351. Down payments can be as low as 5% up to 30% depending on loan size, larger loans will require a bigger down payments.
