Second Mortgages Return to Nevada!

Beginning May 15, residents of The Silver State can purchase or refinance using a second mortgage to avoid private mortgage insurance premiums!  That’s right!  PrimeLending has partnered with a private lender to offer buyers in Nevada the 80/10/10 home loan once again!

What is a Second Mortgage?

A second mortgage or, home equity line of credit, is a loan in second position behind the first.  Historically, second mortgages were used to help buyers get into homes with no money down.  Of course, when disaster struck and millions of homeowners lost equity in their homes overnight, the second mortgage had to go.

Fortunately, the housing market has seen a huge marked recovery!  And, with it is the return of the second mortgage.  That’s right, the 80/10/10 home loan is back in the Silver State.  With slightly different parameters, this second mortgage option re-introduces the advantages of financing a home without private mortgage insurance.  More specifically, the 80/10/10 home loan option allows a buyer to put 10% down on a home, opening a line for the remaining 10% while securing a conventional loan up to 80% LTV.  This way the buyer makes payments towards a credit line as a opposed to a private insurance.

Why the 80/10/10 Second Mortgage Option Saves More!

Household income hasn’t budged much since 2011.  But, rents have increased which has made it very challenging to save.  Furthermore, home value gains are perceived by some as “overvalued” as opposed to “recovered.”  As a result, many buyers are unsure of their actual buying power.

So, what options do buyers have?  Below, I’ve listed three low down payment financing options.  Each program has it’s place in the market and may be more appropriate for any specific buyer.  But, the 80/10/10 second mortgage option, has money-saving potential that’s in the triple digits!
