Investors - Speciality Products
Mortgage loans for investors, including experienced and inexperienced landlords, are available for those seeking investment properties for a buy and hold strategy or to renovate and flip. Options include loans to individuals, LLCs, and Corporations for purchase, rate/term refinance, and cash-out refinance with terms up to 30 years. Approval for some investor loans relies on property income rather than solely on personal finances. Qualified borrowers will find flexible options and terms for these products that can offer excellent opportunities for building wealth through real estate.
These loans tend to be more expensive than primary residence loans, but investors can do several things to help keep the cost of investment capital low:
- Maintain a high credit score
- Make a bigger down payment to lower the LTV
- Use a local lender who knows the local market
- Excellent recordkeeping that shows cashflow of existing rentals owned (if any)
