The fees would be over what limit?

Do you mean that the loan plus closing costs would put you too far over on your debt to income ratio? The only way to fix that is to get rid of some of your debt, unfortunately. Or come in with a bigger down payment on the home itself.

It's more than real estate. It's RAYL-Estate!

As mentioned in another response, you may need hard money or a private lender who will fund your purchase. Metro Mortgage Investments is a private hard money lender in Huntington Woods, Michigan, just north of Detroit. A few of the guidelines, house must be brick, minimum 3 bedrooms and the house must have a basement. There are no minimums on the loan amount and no Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac guidelines to hold up the closing. For more information go to or call the office at (248) 547-3006.

I suspect you mean that many lenders won't fund this deal, because they feel that they won't earn a high enough yield from their loan origination fees. Unfortunately, whether or not you consider this to be fair, that's the way it is. So you'll need to adjust your approach. Have you considered using hard money?

Please feel free to drop me a line.

Good Morning!!!

What fee are you talking about? Most investor purchases need at least 20% down some require 25%-30% down. Have you checked into Homeowners Insurance? It's almost impossible to get as an investor in Detroit. You would have to answer additional questons for any of us to be able to give you any answers.

Good Luck,
