I would suggest that you speak to a qualified mortgage broker. They would be able to tell you what you could quality for, as well as if you would be able to use the equity in your home for a down payment. If you currently have a mortgage and want to take out an additional equity loan for a down payment on an investment property a mortgage broker would be able to determine the ratios required.
If you would like my assistance in finding an investment property or if you would like me to refer you to a qualified licensed mortgage broker please feel free to email me at or call/text me at 401-623-1566.
Thank you,

If you're asking a bank to loan you money to purchase, you need to conform with their guidelines. Different banks have different guidelines. If you don't have cash or equity, you're a high risk borrower, so if you do find someone to finance your purchase, expect to pay a higher interest rate. ... more

Depending on what kind of situation you're in if you have the ability to occupy the property you could possibly do a 203k. Its an FHA loan but only requires 3.5% down and you could borrow what seems to be an unlimited amount of money. But you'd have to occupy the property and have it be your primary residence for I believe up to 1 year. But it can be used on multifamily properties as well as singles. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions at 401-451-2281. Thank you and good luck. ... more

That is a very desirable location during the summer season. Depending on exactly how close to the beach your property is, the condition, and other parameters, a weekly or monthly rental can generate thousands. Be cautious of town and State laws and ordinances and regulations. I have experience with this type of rental and the Middletown area, please give me a call or email to discuss anything. Thank you ... more

Hi Dan, I know this property very well and almost fell over when I saw it on MLS at 1.9M. I checked the history and it was on the market just one year ago at 850k and did not sell. Thinking it is a case of an owner with grandoise ideas as to it's worth. My sympathy to the listing agent on this one but it is a very busy area with access from 2 main roads in Warwick. The building has been empty for years now and a tear down may be cheaper then a rehab. In todays's market the assessed value is meaningless but someone thinking of buying this property at that price needs a good calculator.

I do not specialize in commercial property, my forte is residential but I have to say this one got a smile out of me. My best wishes to all involved.

Have a great Thanksgiving
