When applying for a loan for a rental property/investment property...?

Asked by Ashley Merritt, Knoxville, TN Tue Apr 7, 2009

Does a bank solely base if off of your income/debt ratio? Even if you plan to rent it? Do they consider the rent $ you may bring in...or no since it may not come in?
We currently have a mortgage and would be getting an addtional mortgage for a rental property that is currently foreclosed/bank owned.

Whenever a person is applying for a loan future or anticipated income is not taken into consideration. This applies to anticipated income from rental property, a bonus, scholarship, etc. Only current income and cash reserves, that can be documented, is considered.
