Piggy Back Loans: One Home, Two Mortgages

Identifying which type of home loan will work best for you or your client can sometimes be difficult because there are a wide variety of different options and loans to choose from. Very often borrowers have unique financial situations.  Rather than jumping into a cookie-cutter loan, it’s important to explore the products on the market and find a home loan that will support your goals and keep costs to a minimum.

An experienced Mortgage Advisor can educate clients about new home loan options, specialty products and how to properly structure the terms of the loans. In this video, Debra Roberts, a Mortgage Advisor at Samuel Scott Financial Group, explains a new product for simultaneous Home Equity Lines of Credit (HELOC) and Second Trust Deeds that is now available at Samuel Scott Financial Group.

A Second Trust Deed is generally used as a way to help clients get a Home Equity Line of Credit for a purchase or refinance and is considered a great sign of a recovering market.  Because it is a second mortgage, it earned the nickname “Piggy Back Loan”.

With a Piggy Back Loan, when the first mortgage is started or refinanced, the borrower can take out a second mortgage or home equity loan at the same time. Piggy back mortgages are often used as a way to help lower the loan to value ratio, therefore eliminating the need for private mortgage insurance and saving thousands of dollars.

Second Trust Deeds also allow borrowers to take advantage of the low rates consolidate other debts. Your Mortgage Advisor can help you put together a loan that combines home repairs, college tuition or medical expenses into one conforming rate.

You typically have a greater tax deductibility because of the interest rates on the second mortgage and more flexibility on how you are going to pay off the loan.  However, since this is a specialty product there could be additional upfront costs.

To find out what a Second Trust Deed or Home Equity Line of Credit could do for you,
talk to your Samuel Scott Mortgage Advisor.  Our professionals are trained to analyze your complete financial situation and find a product that will support your goals.  We are real people, and here to help.
