80 – 10 – 10’s now are back… at Mortgage Master Service Corporation!

It’s back… the 80/10/10 mortgage program which allows home buyers to put just 10% down and avoid having private mortgage insurance via a second mortgage/home equity line of creedit.  The second mortgage/home equity line of credit technically does not have to be at 10% with the first mortgage at 80% of the loan to value (sales price). Often times, the mortgages may be structured around conforming loan limits, as long as the total combined loan to value is 90%.

Here are some of the program requirements:

  • total combined loan to value limited to 90%.
  • first mortgage limited to conforming loan limits (including conforming high balance).
  • credit scores must be 740 or higher.
  • single-family detached dwellings only.
  • primary residence – owner occupied only.
  • maximum debt to income ratio is 43%.
  • purchase transactions only.

This is just another option for you to consider if you are buying a home with 10% down payment. I recommend comparing this to a scenario with private mortgage insurance to see if this fits your financial scenario.
