I have an asset based lender with higher than bank rates that will do a lower credit score. Pay now or pay latter.

On investment property you Will need 35% down and interest rates are higher than residential loans.

If you get a loan you need a 20% down payment. For example a $100,000 home would require a $20,000 down payment plus closings costs (assume $5,000 or more.)

There are many routes to take to buy an investment property. I work with many mortgage lenders and investor who have financed investment properties in very creative ways. I'd love to share my insight with you. Please give me a call or an email so that we can discuss the many options available to you.

Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

When purchasing any property, most of the time you need a good credit score and also a higher down payment than a regular property. The only time this isn't true is if you are paying cash.

Not if you pay cash. Money talks
