Home Buying in 44119>Question Details

Phil Harris, Home Owner in Vancouver, WA

I am trying to close a deal on 6 SFH's. Avg. price per home is roughly 30-35k. Looking to build a relationship with a small bank or blanket mtg.

Asked by Phil Harris, Vancouver, WA Wed Feb 27, 2013

The owner wants 200k for the 6 homes, and together they are bringing in 5k per month. He is offering owner financing but is only giving me 2 years. My only fear is trying to refinance these a year from now. He wants 10 % down, where as I'd have to put up 20% for each home, if I went the traditional route I'd have to go 20%? Any ideas on who I might be able to call in the Cleveland/Euclid area? I was wondering if a small bank might want to blanket these together, or if there might be another way?

I am going to put these in my name for now under an umbrella policy for my insurance.

Do you currently have an LLC or are these going under you individual name?

I believe the LTV's are between 60-75% currently. Any ideas for hard money lenders then? I feel I could have these places paid off within 5-10 years, maybe sooner? What is a hard money lender going to require from me? I'm trying to remain as liquid as I can during these times. The more money I put into these deals, the less I have for others.

We've seen up to 70% LTV, the lenders we work through typically just require LLC details, contracts of sale and property details.

Hi Phil, I don't think you'll find any bank willing to blanket these together. Financing for smaller mortgages (especially commercial) can still be difficult. As suggested previously I would consider a hard money lender as there are opportunities for 10% or less down -- provided the property value is there. That seems to be the best option for our overseas investors buying here in Cleveland. Euclid is a good cash flow city, hope it works out.

Your best bet is to find a hard money lender that is not a banker. These folks often loan money on much more flexible terms for a little higher interest rate.
