2. No Reserve Requirements

As long as you get a DU/Approve/Ineligible on the initial loan approval, then you will not be further conditioned for reserves, like a standard jumbo loan. If you are putting aside $78,000 for a 10% purchase on a $800,000 home, you might not have another $30,000 or so sitting around, which would be a further requirement with a jumbo loan.
