Jumbo loans loans come in two varieties just like every other type of loan, fixed rate mortgages and Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARM's).  Jumbo loans generally have stricter underwriting requirements due to the increased risk of a higher loan amount.  

Every bank, mortgage company and lender will all have different underwriting guidelines for Jumbo loans because there is no single or group of organizations that set underwriting guidelines, insure and service Jumbo loans the way Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac do for conventional loans and HUD does for FHA loan.
