Luxury Homes financing takes detail consciousness. Any home carrying a price tag of $1 million or more generally falls into the ‘luxury property’ category. To finance it, a luxury loan is called for. Since financing luxury homes in CentennialCherry Hills VillageGreenwood VillageParkercan be more challenging than financing run-of-the-mill properties, many prospective home owners at the luxury level seek the services of a specialist lender. MarketWatch has found that the average price of luxury properties in some major US cities is well over the million dollar threshold – making care in preparing jumbo loan applications more important than ever.
Whether or not you choose to ask your REALTOR® to help you find a mortgage broker well-versed at your price point, the same guiding principles need to be followed:
As with any credit application, you need to ensure that yours is squeaky clean. Don’t short-change any detail (even those that seem unimportant or redundant). Prepare in advance by checking your credit record with all three major bureaus to ensure there are no damaging inaccuracies. Curing them can take time, so starting early pays off.
The larger your deposit, the greater the odds of approval when financing luxury homes in. It stands to reason. The more you can contribute above the standard deposit rate, the clearer your message: this loan will constitute less risk.
Shop Around for Good Rates
The constrained market for jumbo loan resale is one of the reasons rates are somewhat higher than those more commonly available, so keeping a shopper’s mentality is a good idea. When financing luxury Denver Metro Area homes, keeping the rate as low as possible is only prudent. Aim to obtain good faith estimates from a few lenders to find see who is currently offering the best deal.

"We worked with Karen Venier for a relatively short time for a good reason: our home sold at full price within hours of hitting the market! While it’s true that the Denver housing market is “hot,” credit for the speed and ease of our transaction belongs to Karen. She was great to work with, giving us perfect advice about readying our home for sale and then expertly guiding us from offer to close. Along the way, we came to appreciate Karen for her skillful blend of professionalism and personal touches – like dropping off our favorite beverages during a particularly stressful time in our move or shoveling our driveway in subzero temps after we’d left the state (way beyond the call of duty!). Now that we’ve relocated to Wisconsin, we keep saying that we wish Karen could be our buyer’s agent here. Since that’s not possible, we’ll shout her name loudly to whoever might be looking for a home in the Denver area.
Thanks for the great work, Karen!
