80/20, 80/10/10 Piggyback Loans

3 Replies

I'm hearing piggyback loans (80/20 and 80/10/10) have come back from some lenders.  Does this apply to commercial as well?  Also does anyone know of lenders willing to do either for residential properties?

My husband and I got our mortgage from Wells Fargo two years ago and almost went with an 80/20 loan.  Most lenders will consider them, but the catch is that many won't do the second mortgage themselves.  SF was outsourcing the 20% loan piece through other smaller lenders rather than holding it themselves (but they were handling the underwriting altogether so we didn't have to juggle 2 loan apps). 

Might call around to some banks just to ask; sometimes even if the mortgage person at XYZ bank can't do it, s/he will know who can.  They often stay up to speed on the competition.  

I'm a lender and don't personally know of any other banks or companies that do this currently.  I have also never heard of a lender doing 100% financing on commercial or rental property loans though.  Doesn't mean it doesn't happen of course!

 Yes, you can get them for investment properties. You need to find a small bank. Currently doing business with a small bank that gave us that option. They do not advertise it but yes, it can be done for investments.
