Home Buying in Washington>Question Details

Erika, Home Buyer in Woodbridge, VA

I am a physician working in VA but I spend half the month in New York. I would like to purchase a home in NYC but I have had trouble finding 90%

Asked by Erika, Woodbridge, VA Mon Jul 12, 2010

financing for a condo in the 600k range. The best I have found is 80%. Any suggestions?

Help the community by answering this question:


I think you will find that lenders have started to pull back from or not offer in any form 90% Loan To Value (LTV) product any longer. You may benefit in making a purchase with someone since you only spend half your time in NY. The shared costs could make the 20% down much easier to reach. Otherwise you may need to consider private lenders, but the cost of those loans are higher than conventional banks.

Because you work primarily in VA buying a condo in NY would be considered a second home and therefore you will be limited to a max. 80% LTV.
