When you are purchasing a high priced home, there are different rules that come with the loan. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have set a loan limit for traditional loans, anything above that price limit is considered a jumbo loan. The limits are different depending on which county you live in, mostly because some areas have a higher median home price than others.
