In December 2008, borrowers who wanted a jumbo loan were paying 1.8 percentage points higher on their mortgage rates than convential government-backed loans, according to financial publisher HSH Associates.
That gap narrowed as the crisis eased. As of last week, borrowers who receive jumbo loans were paying a premium of 0.8 percentage points, according to HSH. That’s still above a pre-crisis level of 0.25 percentage points.
