– 80% of the purchase is your 1st mortgage, which will have a 30-year amortization with a 15-year balloon payment.

-20% of your purchase (essentially your down payment) will also have a 30-year amortization with a 15-year balloon payment.

30/15 Balloon mortgage

This fixed-rate mortgage is otherwise known as a 30/15. It is amortized like a 30-year mortgage, but at the end of 15 years, the remaining balance (a.k.a. the balloon) comes due. This means you would need to pay off the loan, sell the home, or refinance within 15 years.
