if you were in california i'd suggest Bank of America or Wells or Metlife homeloans so figure out who the big guys are thereabouts and get in front of one. they will determine if the programs they have are suitable for your business plan.
i am NOT dissing all brokers but the reality of the new market is that they have so little juice anymore that they cannot be relied on. not because they are disreputable or unreliable but because they get their loan programs pulled and changed so often by the investors.
i am doing the same thing, investing in long term rentals, i think it's the best way to set yourself up financially. everyone should have a few. the great part is that the rents are finally covering expenses and then some. it's not hard to find a great cash flow rental...the hard part is getting it financed.
if you would could you report back on your progress...this is an important topic and it would be great to hear of your success or torture.
Try Hyperion Bank, Frank. You can contact me off-line for additional information.
