Bankrate helps thousands of borrowers find mortgage and refinance lenders every day. To determine the top mortgage lenders, we analyzed proprietary data across more than 150 lenders to assess which on our platform received the most inquiries within a three-month period. We then assigned superlatives based on factors such as fees, products offered, convenience and other criteria. These top lenders are updated regularly.
Ally Bank – Best overall
Ally Bank is an online bank and lender that offers several benefits for borrowers seeking jumbo loans and other types of mortgages.
Strengths: Ally Bank displays interest rates and APRs on its website, and you’ll be able to get preapproved in as little as three minutes, with the typical closing taking place 10 days faster than the industry average, according to the bank. Notably, Ally allows restricted stock units to count towards jumbo loan reserve requirements.
Weaknesses: The bank doesn’t lend mortgages in 13 states (Alaska, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Vermont, Virginia or Wyoming), and if you’re a first-time homebuyer seeking a jumbo loan, you’ll need at least 12 months’ reserves to qualify.
CIT Bank – Best bank lender
CIT Bank, which also does business as OneWest Bank in Southern California, has fixed-rate products ranging from 10- to 30-year terms, as well as adjustable-rate and interest-only loans. The bank also offers jumbo loans up to $2 million.
Strengths: If you’re a banking client, you can get a lower mortgage rate if you deposit a certain portion of the loan principal into your account, and $525 cash back after you close your loan. You can also view interest rates online after inputting some basic information.
Weaknesses: With the exception of OneWest branches, the bank doesn’t have physical locations if you’re seeking in-person assistance.
First Mortgage Direct – Best no-fee lender
First Mortgage Direct, the online division of First Mortgage Solutions, offers both purchase loans and refinancing.
Strengths: First Mortgage Direct has no hidden fees or limited-time offers, and you can receive a personalized rate within seconds through its website. Borrowers are also able to close in 30 days, which is in line with many other lenders’ timelines.
Weaknesses: First Mortgage Direct is available only in 19 states (California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and Washington).
Better.com – Best online lender
Strengths: With Better, you can get a rate quote in seconds and a preapproval in as little as three minutes. The lender doesn’t charge unnecessary fees, either.
Weaknesses: There aren’t any branch locations, which can be a disadvantage if you’re looking for in-person support from a loan officer.
PNC Bank – Best for refinancing
PNC Bank is a bank offering an array of financial products, from high-yield savings accounts to different types of mortgages.
Strengths: PNC Bank can do jumbo purchase loans and refinances up to $5 million. The bank also offers online preapprovals (these take 20 to 30 minutes to generate) and showcases interest rates on its website. In addition, some clients have access to discounts on mortgage.
Weaknesses: Relationship pricing is only available to PNC Wealth Management and Hawthorn clients who have at least a $500,000 balance, which can be a barrier of entry for some borrowers.
Jumbo mortgage basics
Shopping around for the best jumbo mortgage rates
When getting a jumbo loan (or really any kind of loan), it’s a good idea to shop around. Bankrate is a good starting point. Because a non-conforming loan is usually for such a large amount, getting the best rate can make a big difference in the amount of interest that you pay.
Be sure to check with local financial institutions as well, since sometimes community banks or credit unions can have good rates. It’s also a good idea to work with a mortgage broker who specializes in jumbo loans.
As you solicit quotes from lenders and brokers, make sure you provide information that’s as accurate as possible. Because your credit score is going to be a big determinant of your rate, review your credit report before you start shopping around. If you see errors, have them fixed as soon as possible.
Be prepared to answer questions about your liquid and non-liquid assets, as well as how much you can afford for your down payment. You should also have an accurate idea of your income and your debt levels so you can let potential lenders know your debt-to-income ratio. The more accurate your information, the more accurate your preliminary mortgage rate quote will be.
If you plan to buy a home and need a loan that exceeds the conforming limit set by the FHFA, you need to understand jumbo loans. You’ll probably have a more involved and complicated process to go through to fund your home. However, if you move forward with the right lender, there’s a good chance that you’ll be able to get the home of your dreams — even if you use a non-conforming loan.
