Beyoncé, Jay-Z bought Bel-Air home with interest only mortgage

by Steve Randall02 Oct 2017
They may be one of the richest couples in North America but Beyoncé and Jay-Z have reportedly bought a home in Los Angeles’ swanky Bel-Air neighbourhood with an interest-only mortgage.

The U$88 million estate was bought over the summer with a 40% downpayment, Business Insider says. The couple then arranged the interest-only home loan.

With a loan that starts low but increases when borrowers begin to pay off the principal, it can be a risky strategy, plus of course interest rates are now on the rise.

Interest-only loans have also been blamed for their role in the financial crisis and now make up only a small share of US mortgages.

However, with the couple estimated by Forbes to worth more than a billion dollars, there shouldn’t be too much for their lender to worry about!
