80/10/10 or 80/15/5 Mortgages
With an 80/10/10 or 80/15/5, buyers get a standard mortgage for 80% of the purchase price, put 5% or 10% down, and borrow the remaining 10% or 15% in a separate second mortgage. This option let’s buyers avoid Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI), possibly reducing their monthly mortgage payment.
One-Year Adjustable Rate (ARM) Mortgages
The initial rate on this mortgage is fixed for a one-year period. The rate is adjusted annually thereafter on the loan’s anniversary date.
Refinance with Cash-Out
A “Cash-Out Refinance” occurs when the amount of the new mortgage exceeds the amount needed to repay the first mortgage and associated costs. The borrower can choose to use the additional cash for a different purpose.
If you have an existing Summit first mortgage, you may be eligible to streamline refinance to a new, lower rate mortgage with reduced closing costs. Certain restrictions apply so please contact us for more information.
