Matt, Home Buyer in 06067

Are piggyback mortgages available these days?

Asked by Matt, 06067 Tue Dec 11, 2012

My wife and I are looking to purchase a $599k home and believe we'll be able to make a downpayment of ~$140k. That leaves us with >20% down, but over the $417k loan balance threshold for a conventional mortgage. We would like to take out a first mortgage for $417k to capture the lower rate and a second mortgage for the remaining balance.

Yes, our mortgage company works with a lender that will allow a stand alone second mortgage. If you have $140,000 to put down, your total financed would be $459,000. Your first mortgage could be for $417,000 to remain within the conventional limits. The second mortgage could be for $42,000. This would be the stand alone second mortgage. The minimum credit score requirments for this program are 700 and all properties financed under this program must be owner occupied.

I know that my sister was able to. I would talk to your bank or mortage broker to see what would be best for you, either a lower rate or if paying less pmi. If you would like a mortgage referral I would be happy to give you some. Also, if you have any questions about buying your new home or would like a tour, I would be happy to assist.
