Piggyback Loan Lenders

These loans are often called piggyback loans, since they require two loans, one to take the brunt of the home value, and a second smaller loan that handles a smaller portion, thus "piggybacking" off of the first loan. There are many variations to this structure, including a 75-15-10 loan and many more.

Appraisal Comes In Low

The first loan is a more traditional mortgage with an 80% loan-to-value ratio (LTV), while the second lien is a revolving line of credit in the form of a home equity loan. Payments on piggyback loans vary, as each lender structures the loans differently; these loans are typically pegged to the prime rate (the lowest rate of interest available).
