Relocation to Melbourne, FL area

Asked by NoVaPowerPlay, Herndon, VA Fri Jan 4, 2013

My family may be relocating down to the Melbourne, FL area for work and I'd like to get some more information on our financial options. We currently own a single-family home in Herndon, VA (Wash DC suburb) and have a fixed rate 30yr mortgage for 79% of its value. If we move, we are unsure if it would be long-term or only for a few years a this point. We would like to be able to keep our house in Herndon and rent it out, while buying a second (now primary) home in Florida. Can you let me know our options for doing this?

From my research online, it appears you'd need at least 1yr of rental history on your home to count that as income when buying a second house. I belive we could qualify for a second mortgage without this income, but without selling our first home I don't believe we'd be able to put 20% down on the second. Are there options to acquire a second mortgage without putting 20% down?

Help the community by answering this question:


You may be able to obtain 96.5% FHA financing or 90-95% conventional. The only disadvantage is need to pay Mortgage Insurance. Fairly low on 90% loan, higher for 95% or FHA. Please let me know if I can give you contact info for 3 extremely knowledgable lenders with very competetive rates.

I'd love to assist you in househunting! Please contact me with detailed criteria so that I can send you home listings of interest or any needed info! I pride myself in delivering service above and beyond expectations!
