- 80% comes from your first mortgage.
- 10% comes from a second home equity mortgage.
- 10% comes from a cash down payment.
- No private mortgage insurance (PMI) is needed even if your down payment is under 20%.
- You can choose a term of 10, 15, 20, or 30 years for your first mortgage.
- Both first and second mortgages will be fixed-rate so your payments stay the same.

80/10/10 Mortgage FAQs
What is an 80/10/10 mortgage loan?
An 80/10/10 loan is sometimes known as a combination mortgage or piggyback mortgage because it draws funds from a range of sources. You get a first mortgage to cover most of your loan then you get some of your financing through a secondary home equity loan.
Here's how an 80/10/10 loan is broken down:
80% of the home loan is financed as a first mortgage, such as a conventional fixed-rate loan.
10% of the loan is financed as a second mortgage, known as a home equity loan.
The final 10% comes from a cash down payment, which is determined by the purchase home price.
What are the advantages of an 80/10/10 loan?
One of the main benefits of an 80/10/10 mortgage is you don't usually need to pay private mortgage insurance, which can be expensive.
With conventional home loans, you need to pay PMI unless you have a 20% down payment. PMI doesn't protect you or your home, it protects your lender in case you default on your loan.
Another benefit of an 80/10/10 loan is it may free up your savings for something other than a down payment. You could invest the money, pay off debts, or even buy furniture for your new home.
The 80/10/10 loan gives you more flexibility and allows you to save on PMI costs.
What mortgage rate will I get?
Mortgage lenders base your rate on many factors, such as your loan amount and credit score.
The term you choose also impacts your rate. Shorter terms mean you'll get a lower rate and pay off your loan sooner, but your monthly payment will be higher. Longer terms mean you'll get a slightly higher interest rate and pay more total interest, but your monthly payment will be more affordable.
