Home Buying in Boston>Question Details

Chris, Home Buyer in Beverly Farms, MA

Do any lenders in the Boston area offer piggyback (80/10/10) or 10%-down jumbo loans?

Asked by Chris, Beverly Farms, MA Wed Feb 13, 2013

My wife and I are (or hopefully will soon be) first-time home buyers, and I have a high enough income that we could comfortably afford the mortgage payments, but we don't have enough saved up for a 20% down payment and our bank requires 20% down for all jumbo loans. I realize that this is the standard for most of the major banks, but is it a universal requirement?

Most certainly can get either. However, the final decision depends on your income, credit score and history, and lastly the property itself.

Your best approach is to work with an experienced mortgage broker - one who works with many lenders. They will have access to a wider range of mortgage options. Some will be able to offer portfolio loans where it will not be sold on the secondary market, giving the lender more control over what loans to make. Be prepared to pay higher interest rates - the lender has to cover what is rightly considered a higher risk. Good Luck.

The 80-10-10 options are certainly available. Not all lenders offer piggyabck above 80% combined loan to value, but there are options available. We also have a jumbo option which is a single loan at 90% of the purchase price without private mortgage insurance, PMI.
