Ask A CPA - Mortgages & Loans

What Is A Piggyback Mortgage ?

A borrower takes a conventional 30-year loan for 80% of the loan amount. A second mortgage for 10% of the loan amount is taken simultaneously at a slightly higher rate. The idea is for the borrower to quickly pay off the second loan and leave the borrower with a fixed loan with no Purchase Mortgage Insurance (PMI).
