Why are discount points for an FHA jumbo loan different from one lender to another? Isn't it a standard rate?

One Word: Profit.

Not only will pricing be different from bank to bank, but you have to consider that each bank is going to make a specific profit off of each loan they sell, plus each loan officer is going to try and make their determined profit off of a loan. Assuming that you are just referring to discount points that will get a rate below market, then each bank has the ability to price a loan at any level versus the going market rate. That will vary from lender to lender. If you have any questions, please let me know.
