Omaha Jumbo loan programs have recently expanded to accommodate financing up to 95% for eligible home buyers. Flexible Jumbo mortgages have remained popular for many Nebraska home buyers that require a high balance loan.
The standard conforming loan limits in Omaha is currently set at $548,250, so any amount that exceeds this would be considered a “Jumbo” mortgage. In the past jumbo loans required high down payments of 20% or more from many lenders. However, new options have entered the market that permits financing with only 10% and 5% down payment.
