The standards for second-home purchases requiring a jumbo loan have also eased to a 680 credit score and a 20% down payment. Buyers used to have to put down 30% to 50%.
The bank claims it’s the only lender allowing a 680 credit score with smaller down payments for primary and second home jumbo mortgages.
Loose lending practices helped bring down the housing market in 2008. In the wake of the Great Recession, credit markets froze and the mortgage industry upped their loan requirements.
While the standards have started to loosen, mortgage availability remains relatively tight and first-time buyers have been noticeably absent.
"My name is Emilio. When I was buying my property, I hired Mr William J Reinhardt Jr as my Real Estate Attorney, it was one of the best decision I ever made because he did everything in his power to make sure my purchase was successful. For example, The utilities bills left over by the person who owned the property before me. I said thank you to Bill for not allow me to pay these costly bills." - 5.0 stars | Posted by Emilio Bien Aime | October 1, 2019
