I saw the news yesterday in Reddit about various lenders pulling out of the market.  Looks like a couple are pulling out of the Jumbo market as well.  Right now, everything is on hold so it's not impacting anything at the moment.  We'll see what happens once things get back to normal.

Regardless of loan amount, I don't think "ghosting" benefits anyone at any time except maybe that friendly guy known as Casper.

Jumbo and subprime (QM) has been put on hold across the board for over a week. There may be some Mavericks out there still offering them. So far not seeing any major VA issues and I do not have any FHA buyers...rarely do anymore.

I received notices from both my Bank of America and Wells Fargo private banking lenders and they are still doing jumbos...and their rates are great too!

I'm not sure if their counterparts who work the branches are able to offer them but, working with high net worth individuals, they have to keep the jumbos going.

I've only heard about FHA problems. I'm sure they are cherry picking as they were just before the virus.

That number would leave me out even if I were still active Caroline Gerardo . I don't believe there have been six million dollar sales in the history of Minot ND.

We will have to find alternatives. Buyers may face higher interest rates. They can refi later.

I imagine there will be more than appraiser required. Needing a realtor as 3rd party to validate the value.

My lender is still closing loans in 30 days or less. 

We are in some ever-changing and challenging times.  No telling what tomorrow will bring. Stay safe!

The stimulus bill put mortgage payments on hold for 6 months. if you were lending your money would you wait until payments started back up or wait and see?
