80/20 Loan

Mortgage Library: Ask a Mortgage Related Question: Answers: 80/20 Loan

Question:

What exactly is a 80/20 loan for a mortgage on a house?

Answer:

An 80/20 loan is a combination loan for 100% financing (no down payment). With this type of mortgage, you would actually have two loans -- one for 80% of the purchase price and one for 20% of the purchase price. Sometimes payments on both loans are made to the same lender, sometimes different lenders.

Some of the benefits of an 80/20 loan: you avoid private mortgage insurance; you have more tax-deductible interest at the end of the year; the blended rate is often lower than the interest rate for a single 100% loan; some non-conventional lenders only offer 80/20 loans for 100% financing.
