Financing for Rental Investments & Other Projects

You have many lending options available with currently low-interest rates to apply to fix-and-flip projects and investment rentals. There are three key elements to investment rentals a lender uses to approve loans: a borrower’s credit score, monthly cash flow versus expenses, and the loan to appraised equity or value in the property. Your total income should be a minimum of 20% more than your monthly expenses, and the preferred amount is 25% to 30% above expenses. This figure includes your principal and interest payment, utilities, and property taxes. If you are trying to secure a loan, lenders prefer borrowers with a credit score at or above 640. An investment rental lender’s average loan to value is 65% to 70%.

Investment Rental Approval Process

The approval process for investment rental loans begins with an application. Other documents you need to provide include copies of two years, property profit and loss statements for the current year, a rent roll (shows current tenant list), their current lease income, and their lease’s start and end date. Lenders also require copies of the current leases as part of the underwriting process.

Review and approval have an average turnaround time is one week, starting with issuing the term sheet, including the loan’s rate and length. After the loan is signed, the property is appraised at the borrower’s upfront cost. Typically, it takes two weeks for the appraisal to come in, and then they confirm the value and order the title on the property. If the property has any outstanding loans or liens against it, they will be listed on the title report, as well as unpaid utilities or property taxes and unsettled judgments. Lenders require a clear title with all issues resolved to close. Investment rental loans are currently fixed in the 4% range for five years, with a 25-year timeline to write off the property’s initial cost.
