The sales of Stowe luxury homes could benefit from the fact that jumbo home loans are on the rise. Volume for jumbo loans is up significantly which means two things: one, people are buying more expensive real estate, and two, lenders are lending. Stowe luxury real estate falls under the category of benefiting from larger loans being more readily available.

A jumbo home loan differs from location to location, being tied to affordability levels in any given area, but typically is for a loan of $650,000 or more. There are many Stowe properties fall into this category. The catch for a jumbo loan is that it is not backed by the federal government and is therefore acquired by a private lender. Rates vary for jumbo loans and are tied to the value of a property and how much is borrowed.

In the second quarter of 2012 65% more jumbo loans were granted compared with a year ago. This is a dramatic increase and speaks volumes for luxury real estate sales.
