The best place to check for a line of credit is at your bank where you have a current relationship. These loans come with a personal guarantee and won't be limited to the asset to which it is tied. Therefore the banks will want to see you income and ability to repay the debt and will consider that just as important as the value of your home. I know that US Bank has some decent programs at the moment. Start by checking there. If you'd like and introduction to a lender, please give me a call and I can get you lined up with the right person.

Alain Picard answered:
From what I've heard from the people at the bank that I deal with they won't be able to go FHA if more than 50 percent isn't owner occupied and also the HOA dues have to be up to date for a certain percentage of the condos in the development. I have this written down in my office but I don't have it in front of me so I'm just going off of what I remember. ... more

The big advantage of Homepath is the low down payment. If your client is putting 20% or more down then they would be paying a higher interest rate then a conventional mortgage.

It is difficult to get a loan if the HOA is getting sued. You will have a problem getting a loan even if you are putting 25% down. Most lenders do not want a lend when pending litigation is involved. Also, it can effect the finances of the H.O.A if the plaintiff wins.

Good luck.

I am assuming you are referring to a no income/asset loan (having never heard of a VOE loan the industry, a VOE is a verification of employment). If my assessment is correct, the answer is no. All mortgage products in today's market require income/credit and employment analysis (including all documentation). There may be some exceptions for asset based financing (leveraging a stock portfolio, for example). If you have specific questions, I would be happy to answer them for you if you contact me via my profile. The underwriting guidelines have tightened; however, they are not nearly as impossible as some proclaim. Best to you! ... more

Buying a mortgage note means you take ownership of a mortgage and you receive the interest income from the mortgage and of course you have to deal with it if the borrower stops paying.

It is my understanding that all banks will count your student loans debt into your debt to income ratio. It affects your income, and they want to make sure you will be able to pay the mortgage. A rep from Wells Fargo explained it to me this way. Good luck.

I do not not know any lenders who will do a no doc. Everyone wants to see 1040s for 2 years. You can do an asset loan if you have investments. No income based just value of assets.

After it expires you can ask for change in terms. You need to talk to your loan officer and make that request.

Fernando- This will be hard to do. What you are seeking is a cross-collateralized property loan. Most lenders will only lend on one APN. Additional APNs would need to have a separate loan per APN. Best wishes.

Happy holidays, Rudi

There are different schools of thought on this. Many feel better to pay loans off but many also feel that its not smart since you lose the tax benefits or writing your mortgage interest off..
You can either do what you suggested or you can refi into a longer loan. Rates wont be much better than what you have now since the loan amount is so low.

My suggestion, keep both loans and take the HELOC money and purchase an investment property. There are many homes in socal that are in that price range. They will allow you to make a large positive cashflow with tenants and some nice tax benefits (talk to your accountant).

I am an expert in rental properties. I can help you invest to make money and make your life easier. There are many different options to consider. On several of my REO rentals, I make 20% profit a year on them and have good tenants. It is a very rewarding way to make money. I would be pleased to help you with your search. There are plenty of options for you. I am an honest and down to earth realtor who will help you find something to make YOU and your family happy.
As a bonus, I will credit you up to 1% of the home price back through escrow on any home purchase of over 125,000! This could save you thousands!
