Second Home Loans

Second home loans are now easier to obtain and you have many more second home loans options than in the past. Second homes provide a quiet place for family vacations or as a retirement home in years to come. I have an increasing number of clients looking for second home loans options for property other than a principal residence. 

While many lenders only offer second home loans requiring a 10-20 % down payment and at rates much higher than required for conventional loans, we can make your dream come true with only a 10% down payment. And at regular, conventional interest rates. Second home loans are available as 30 or 15 year fixed rate, adjustable rate loans, balloon loans, and we can even help you with "stated income" second home loans if your income is difficult to verify. Many of my clients obtain the down payment for their vacation home by taking out a home equity line on their primary residence. If the borrower can afford the monthly debt payments of the equity line, this technique can be an easy way to get the cash for the second home.

New! 100% financing is now finally available for second homes! Financing is available up to $400,000 with a 45% debt to income ratio, $1,500 residual income and only 2 months of liquid reserves. When you find the "perfect" vacation home, we have the financing that makes sense.

We can help finance the second home if you are building with a construction/perm loan. If you are buying land to build on later I can help you with a lot loan. Or, if the home is already built, I can help you with the permanent loan. We offer 30 and 15 year fixed rate loans, adjustable rate mortgages, balloon mortgages, stated income, and no documentation loans. We can even finance your vacation home with a program which will allow very high debt to income ratios. If you are concerned over having to make a large down payment, I have several loan programs which will allow only a 10% down payment for vacation homes. Please let me know what you are trying to do by completing my QualifierQuicksheet and I will give you an idea of the  options available to you.
