Jumbo mortgage down payment requirement absolutely 20%?

Asked by tnguyen18, New York, NY Wed Aug 29, 2012

Our current combined income is $260K, with minimum credit scores of 785 between the 2 of us. Is there anyway possible to lower the 20% down payment requirement for a jumbo loan in NY?

Help the community by answering this question:


In the last two years, the biggest change in jumbo lending has involved down payments. It's difficult to find any bank that will approve a jumbo loan with less than 20 percent down payment or equity.
If the property is appreciate with a value higher than the selling price, so you will have equity in the property you don,t need to pay 20% down payment.

Good luck!

I do have access to a lender that would allow you to place only 10% down. Have you received a pre- approval?

If it's under $2,000,000, it may be possible. However, the lowest down payment won't go any lower than 10%. Please contact me if you need further details! Our company also does financing for different types of mortgages.

Jumbo loan requirements can differ depending on the state you are in. For a better answer I would speak to your bank or your loan officer to see if there is a way you can lower the down payment.
