Real Estate Investment Mortgage                                                                                                                      

Real Estate investment mortgage products are my specialty. I have developed extensive knowledge of the underwriting requirements of real estate investment mortgage products. For experienced real estate investors, there are depreciation and expense treatment methods which improve your ratios. For new real estate investors, there are real estate investment mortgage programs allowing investment in real estate with lower down payment requirements.

I am an active real estate investor myself, and much of my knowledge of these real estate investment mortgage programs comes from research I have done for my own investment real estate. As an active real estate investor, I understand that each real estate deal is different and may require a different mortgage solution. There is no one mortgage that is the right answer for each situation. Please call or email me with the specifics of what you want to do. I will need to know your anticipated hold period, anticipated cash flow, current rate of real estate appreciation in your market, and whether your real needs are for a reduced down payment or to maximize cash flow

Real Estate Investment Mortgage Programs fall into two categories: Fannie & Freddie and our Real Estate Investment Specialty Mortgage Programs. 

Real Estate Investment mortgage products sold to Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac require a down payment ranging from 10% to 25% with a delivery fee ranging from 1.5 to 3 points. Please understand that these fees are imposed by Fannie and Freddie and are not charges from either your lender or your broker. However, the fee allows using conventional rates and loan limits. These conforming loans are available as either fixed rate or an ARM. Even with the delivery fees, these loans can be a good choice if your goals are to maximize cash flow and you plan to hold the property for a 3 to 5 year period. Ratios are normally 28/36, but with automated underwriting, excellent credit and some liquid reserves, it is not uncommon to see back ratios in the middle 40s. Rental income is decreased by a 25% vacancy factor but there are underwriting methods which eliminates this issue for experienced investors.

The Real Estate Investment Mortgage Specialty program (actually a growing group of investor loan programs) allows purchase or refinances with only 5% equity. The program allows up to 20 properties plus your home. Available up to $1,000,000 and 2-4 unit properties are acceptable. Ratios are generally 34/40 and a No Documentation real estate investment mortgage is available. Available as a fixed or adjustable rate in many reduced down payment scenarios.. 

100% real estate investment mortgage products are now available with fairly reasonable rates. These programs have been available for a while, but at extremely high rates compared to market rates. We finally have a source of financing that will allow you to acquire property with limited out of pocket costs.
