How To Make Second Homes Affordable

I wanted to get this information together to help my clients purchase these Second Homes again; if you are not aware, these loans took a massive blow from FNMA in January, when they released a recent fee change to these loans.
Here is the announcement -
Essentially they have significantly increased the costs associated with purchasing a second home with a conventional loan. Even if the client is okay with the higher costs, they still could not purchase them, because those higher costs now trigger high-cost compliance laws within the banks. So, we can't do these loans, especially when they are above 647k as a loan amount or what they call High Balance Loans. But, I want to show you a way we could in this market.


"Scott and his team did a great job of laying out potential funding scenarios that fit our budget. In the end, we now save $300 per month on our mortgage."

"Scott is the consummate mortgage professional. His creativity to close and duty as a fiduciary are second to none. I'm so grateful to have him in my corner now and in the future, especially with how competitive talk estate is in California! Thank you, Scott, and team!"
