Financing in 75248>Question Details

Dave, Home Owner in 75248

Purchasing some investment properties (condos) in about 60-90 days in the 40-70K range, need an experienced money person on the financing.

Asked by Dave, 75248 Wed Jan 18, 2012

I know that 20% down and personal guarantee will be required. What terms can I expect? How long can the loan be outstanding? Can it be amortizing or a bullet payment?

Help the community by answering this question:


Are you looking for long term financing or rehab/hard money type financing.

Sounds more like hard money....
I'm thinking in the 9% range....6months repayment with monthly payments and balloon at the end.

However I just saw the word condo....lots of hard money lenders won't lend on condos and many banks won't loan on under $50,000 so you may be in a bit of a tough spot.

Call me and let me know what you are thinking about doing and maybe I can point you in the right direction.

Fannie Mae allows for you to have up to 10 financed properties. If you currently have less than 4 financed properties including your primary residence and second home(s) then you can put 20% down. Once you exceed 4 financed properties you will then have to put 25% down up to 10 total financed properties. If you own properties that are free and clear then they are not included in the total. Example, I recently financed a client who owned 12 properties free and clear and had 7 properties financed. We were able to loan on three more for him.

You live in my neighborhood, Prestonwood. Love it. I have 2 kids at Parkhill going to Pearce next year.

Couple of starter ideas. Have you been to a Roddy Roundup?? Go take a look on line. They are free at the Addison Civic Center. Next one is Feb 2. Wonderful platform for investor research and to meet and greet with agents, other investors, lenders, both "hard money" and standard mortgage lenders.

Also, have you considered seller financing in that price range...wrap arounds etc.

Sterling is a good "hard" lender.

Best of luck. Let me know if I can help you in any way at all. Maybe I'll see you at the Roundup.

There are no "standard" answers Dave. Every situation is unique and most of your answer(s) will be based upon "you". The Internet, as great a tool as it is, is over crowded with all kinds of entities and people who'll tell you they can "do the deal". But, their success ratio and lever of customer satisifaction leaves a lot to be desired--especially for investors. However, developing a "face-to-face" relationship that will continue and have more possibilities is the best way to raise your level of success. Typical lenders don't portfolio their loans which affects their terms/guidelines. I recommend seeking a private lender with whom you can build a relationship and who can customize solutions for you. There are tremendous advantages of having someone who knows you, your business and can help you achieve your goals.
