$625,000. Anything over that would be a jumbo loan.

Essex County is what's known as a "high loan balance" county, and the conforming limit there is $625,500.

As far as the rate differences, there is no rule, but in general you should expect to pay .25% to .50% higher on a jumbo fixed loan. I've got jumbo ARM's available though that are lower than conforming rates.

If I can be of assistance please shoot me an email.
