10% Down with Pledged Assets
Here in California, I come across a lot of home financing scenarios, especially on the jumbo side, where the buyer would prefer to make a 10% down payment instead of a 20% down payment. And what we commonly see is that as the price range of the home increases, so too does the difficulty of only contributing 10% to the purchase transaction. What can these buyers do? We have three highly effective solutions:
- 80/10/10, or "piggyback" financing. This works well for home prices in the range of $825,000 to $1,100,000. Since a second mortgage, or 80-10-10 is fairly straightforward and the most easily understood, just e-mail me if you'd like more information on how this would work for you.
- REX Homebuyer down payment funding. REX, covered in this video here, will permit a 10% down payment up to a purchase price of nearly $1,600,000. REX can also be used up to a purchase price of $2,000,000 with as little as 12.5% down. The big benefit of REX? No monthly payments. It's an equity investment, paid back when you sell the home.
- Pledged assets. A pledged asset structure will permit a 10% down payment up to a purchase of $5,500,000. Perhaps the best thing about our program is that it doesn't require that you move all your money to another institution. Love your financial advisor? You can keep him/her and still pledge the majority of your down payment. The other main points are covered in this video below:
