Any less than 20% programs for Jumbos?

Me and my husband live in San Diego county and are in a position to afford payments on a jumbo loan. However, our current house is underwater more than $200k, we've lost the majority of the downpayment for a new home. We currently have about 5-10% we can afford on the new home's downpayment of a $700k loan and can show 6 months of reserves in our IRA/401ks. Are there any programs that can do this for us, or do we need the mandatory 20%? by christ_986_857 from Carlsbad, California. Nov 1st 2011 Reply

The bigger question is whether you can support both house payments and qualify for the new loan. With less than 30% equity in the departing residence, the lender will qualify you with the payments on both properties regardless of rental income.

If the purchase price is &700,000 then we can go up to $625,500 which is 88% Loan to value.

There are programs out there when you can do 100% financing on Jumbo up to $1M. But like Chris said... can you support both payments? Best advise is to contact a local mortgage broker, not a bank, and let them look at your complete scenario... WilliamAcres.com

As pointed out here...you would have to qualify with both mortgage payments. You new loan can be the max at $625,500 the balance being your down payment and you would be subject to mortgage insurance premiums.Feel free to contact me to discuss in details:877-369-4319
