Avoiding PMI in Beaverton, Oregon – Buy a home that the owner is willing to carry the 2nd loan


Are you a buyer that is being told that your payment is going to be either $150 higher because you will need to carry PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance), or that it will be $75 higher if you carry a 2nd loan at 11-12%? There may be a better way for you to purchase a home, especially if the $75-$150 a month is the difference between the house of your dreams and settling.

This other option is having the seller do a 20% carry back. I don't advise most sellers to do a carry back because of the risk involved to them being in 2nd position to the first loan, but there are some sellers that offer this. If you have a seller willing to offer you a 2nd loan at 7-8% then this will save you a lot of money each month and also help you avoid PMI!
