Which banks specialize in lending for investment property?

Asked by Funksouldiva, Austin, TX Thu Jul 9, 2009

I'm a first-time buyer looking to purchase a 4-plex in the near future here in the Austin area. I started my quest at the credit union where I have my savings but they don't really do that kind of lending and the loan agent's eyes glazed over when I brought up the subject. I'm faced with a daunting list of banks to phone but maybe y'all have a better idea of where to start. Thanks!

Unfourtunately ALL mortgage brokers eyes glaze over and go crossed when you mention any type of lending at this day in time. To be a commision driven business bankers and brokers must be content with 18k per year salary because they dont seem to be willing to work very hard to do loans.

We have a number of lenders that lend on investment property. You must qualify with your credit score, down payment, and a number of other issues. The rate will vary with the those things mentioned previously. However, investment properties normally run about .75% pt. 1.125% higher than a normal residential loan.
Good luck.

Call Chris Abbott with Prime Lending at (512) 241-1743. He has an array of different types of lenders that could finance your quadplex. Expect to pay a 30% down payment unless you occupy one of the units. Call me for specific area suggestions in Austin that will render perpetual occupancy.

Good luck!
