Everything is bigger in Texas. That’s right! Not only is Texas known for its big and bold personality, but that extends to the world of real estate too. Specifically, we mean Texas jumbo loans.

The Housing Market in Austin

If you are looking to buy a high-value property in Texas, especially in Austin, you may need a jumbo loan. Without a doubt, this was confirmed in a recent article in Wall Street Journal, the writer reported: “In Austin, the state’s priciest market, the median sale price for an existing home was $240,700 in December, a 10.7% year-to-year rise, according to NAR. That’s less than a third of the $737,600 median price in San Francisco.” Wow!
