Denver County currently has conforming loan limit caps set at $561,200. Basically, any mortgage amount that exceeds this would be considered a “Jumbo” loan. Please see all the latest Colorado Conforming Loan Limits here. In the past, conventional and FHA mortgages were the only loan types that required little down payments. However, jumbo down payment requirements have loosened somewhat over the last few years and approved buyers can now finance up to 95%
Denver Jumbo Loan Requirments:
- The most important thing to note is all the requirements listed pertain to strictly owner-occupied primary or second homes.
- Documentation is key: Buyers are required to documents their income and saving assets for loan qualifying. Plan on previous two years on tax returns, and/or W2. Plus previous two months of saving accounts that are needed to qualify and show ample reserve requirements.
- Eligible property types include single-family homes, townhomes, condos.
- Uneligible property types include farms, acreage/land, construction on your own lot. Note: this does not include new construction homes that are being sold directly to you by a new home builder. Investment- rental homes are eligible but require a minimum 20% down payment.
- In addition to purchase loans, regular refinance and cash out refinance jumbo programs are available. Learn more about Jumbo refinance options here.

- The reduced down options are great for professionals that have a stable income but lack the traditional 20 percent down payment required by many lenders and banks.
- Many borrowers just want to keep their savings invested in higher return investments.
- Many have their major equity tied up in a current home pending sale, or just want to wait and sell their existing home after the fact.
