We are looking for a jumbo loan (1 mill) in California with 10-15% down. Are there any second loans available?

Asked by Gm, 90803 Thu Aug 26, 2010

We have 775-790 FICO and earn more than enough to meet ratio for a home in the early millions (with secure jobs in education) but our current equity is closer to 150,000. Do not have big savings as our salaries have increased a good deal in the last 2 years. Were looking for loans in June but told that no one was funding with less than 20% down over 729,000. Any ideas of when that might loosen? Thanks!

Its very difficult to attain second loans right now due to the tight credit market. Most lenders will only go up to 80% CLTV (combined loan to value) with two loans. Unless the first loan for example goes up to 70% loan to value then as long as the second loan is for 10% then its possible. After the housing market stabilizes we will see the jumbo market improve.
