GC,

What is the seller’s current financing? If it is less than 80% of the Appraised Value, there are lenders who will hold a first, and allow you to have the seller carry the second - with out anything down.

Mind you the interest will be higher than a conventional loan, but with a few months seasoning you should be able to refi at a more comfortable rate.

Mr Donald.

I am currently looking at a TH to live in. One of the options that I was exploring was to have the seller carry a second so to avoid mortgage insurance.

Are there conventional loans out there that will loan 80% and let the seller carry a 20% second (no money down on my part)?

We approached on lender and they said that I would have to put 5% down for them to make the loan.
