CalPATH Combo Loan Benefits

  1. An 80-10-10 mortgage is structured with two mortgages: the first being a fixed-rate loan at 80% of the home's cost; the second being 10% as a home equity loan; and the remaining 10% as a cash down payment. A higher purchase prices may require a larger 2nd mortgage (or) down payment
  2. This type of mortgage structure reduces the down payment of a home without having to pay private mortgage insurance (PMI), helping borrowers obtain a home more easily with the up-front costs.
  3. Expand your buying power above county loan limits without obtaining a Jumbo loan which requires a minimum 20% down payment and 6 months mortgage payment reserves with most lenders.
