Not sure of your situation but do check with your current bank as well. Depending on your balance with them their rates can be the best for a jumbo. Northern Trust Bank was 20% down for a past client of mine which was available based on their relationship/assets. Guidelines with brokers making it difficult sometimes...don't hesitate to contact a bank direct.
I am happy to help with any needs.

Hi Dan,

Have you completed your purchase or are you still looking? Please call me at 602 326-5360 to discuss your current financing options. Some clients have been able to use their securities as collateral and get a loan through their wealth management account. It is a strategy that was very common during the stock market boom years and is becoming popular again as lenders have increased their criteria on credit and down payments.

Their are lenders we can use that offer loans up to 2MM with 20% down.

I contacted my Mortgage Consultant, Chhin Chhay, at OnQFinancial. He indicated that jumbo loans of $800,000 and above are for 75% of the loan to value. You can contact him at 480-250-6204 if you need more information.

Hi Dan

Much depends on your credit score, work history, and reserves you have. The jumbo market changes daily so it would be best to shop around but anything can change from the day you speak to the lender to the day you find the right home and submit the executed contract. At your price range you are looking closer at 30% down not the 20%. There are some lenders who might do 20% but read into them and try to avoid creative financing. Also during the transaction be prepared for a ride because this lending industry is tough and even tougher on high end transactions. Good luck with your search this is the best time to upgrade or buy your next luxury home there are some incredible deals out there and at your price range you will find a beautiful home. Feel free to call or email me if you are looking for a realtor to help you find your next luxury home.

I have seen lenders at 20% down for super jumbo. I can suggest a local mortgage company that has handled my luxury home buyers and refinancers. Please contact me and I will be happy to recommend one.

Most are 30% down or more but you can find some lenders who will take 20% down on transactions under a million if you look hard enough.
