Financing in Miami>Question Details

Juan Valls, Home Buyer in 33173

Are there any banks that will finance an investment property in Miami?

Asked by Juan Valls, 33173 Fri Jul 1, 2011

I currently have an fha loan, but would like to use some money that i have in the bank to invest on a new property. And have the property pay for itself by renting it. The bank that i have my current home mortgage told me that they are not financing any investment properties at this time. Are there any banks financing investment properties now? Thanks

Banks are in the business of making money. Yes, they will loan money on investment properties if the risk is acceptable for them. Your credit-worthiness and down payment are a big factor of the banks risk calculation.
Let me know if you need a mortgage broker that can help you. Good luck, Oliver

First finish with your FHA and them we can look for. In the event you have money to show bank that you are able to paid for the investment in the mortgage and you don't need the rental to paid for, bank with a very big welcome can work with you.

You can always find financing if you have money to put down, a good payment history, and your debt is less than 43% of your income. You may be able to use the rental income to help you qualify for the loan if you have a lease in place, however, the new mortgage payment will be added to your monthly debt, and as long as this does not put your debt at over 43% of your income, and you are putting at least 30% down, you should be able to qualify. Some lenders are more investor friendly than others, and a good Realtor should be able to direct you to a lender that is more willing to do this type of loan.

As you can see from the responses...YES!

Miami is a strong as ever. Even when times were bad, primarily due to to Mortgage Fiasco.

Miami and The Beaches were and always will be an International Destination.

Most lenders do not rely on rental income as a the primary source of the ability to repay a loan. Basically, as it should be- a bank or lender will approve a mortgage loan IF you can prove that you do not need the loan.

Thanks for the invite!

Yes. Most investment properties require 20% down minimum on the loan, but lenders for such are easy to find. Condos may be somewhat more difficult, and single family homes or duplexes are better investments.

Yes, a lot of banks are financing investment properties, including us.

When you are buying an investment property you'll need at least 10% down though (for properties listed at and if you use Fannie Mae HomePath financing), otherwise a 20-25% down payment would be required. If you use a Fannie Mae loan program to purchase the home, and there is a tenant already occupying it, you can use 75% of the rental income the tenant is paying to help you qualify (there is also an appraisal rent survey done to make sure the rental income being paid is in line with the market). A 660 score is needed with less than 20% down, otherwise with 20% down a 620 score is the minimum requirement.

Let us know if you have further questions or would like additional information.

It really depends upon the property. If it is a condo-maybe, since it depends upon owner occupancy, foreclosures and etc. For a SFR no problem. If you have aproperty in mind, you can contact me for mortgage information.
