The program accepts FICOs as low as 680, DTIs as high as 45% and LTVs as high as 89.9%

Plaza Home Mortgage unveiled a new jumbo mortgage program called Jumbo AUS. The program offers fixed-rate mortgages up to $2 million using the new Qualified Mortgage definition and leverages Desktop Underwriter and Loan Product Advisor documentation.

The program, available through Plaza’s Wholesale and National Correspondent channels, streamlines the underwriting process and accepts FICOs as low as 680, DTIs as high as 45% and LTVs as high as 89.9%, according to a press release. For one-unit primary residence loans, all or part of the down payment can be gifted funds and in most scenarios reserve requirements follow the AUS and are greatly reduced. Jumbo AUS loans can be used for primary residences, second homes and investment properties; purchase or refinance, including cash-out refinances; and for most property types: single-family, 2-4-family, PUDs and condos.

The program will use the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) Safe Harbor definition of QM—loans with APRs less than 150bp over Average Prime Offer Rate (APOR)—and will document employment and income according to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac guidelines. The new definition removes the 43% DTI cap and eliminates the use of Appendix Q.

“This is an ideal product for today’s highly competitive, price-appreciating market,” said Kevin Parra, co-founder, chairman, CEO and co-president at Plaza Home Mortgage. “Our expanded guidelines for DTI, credit and down payments will help originators qualify more borrowers, while our use of DU and LPA will accelerate decision making.”
