What Is a DSCR Loan?
DSCR loans in New Jersey are designed for real estate investors. A DSCR real estate loan uses the income generated by a investment property to determine if the cash flow is sufficient to cover the servicing debt. For the purposes of a DSCR loan, an investment property is one that generates income from tenants.
Essentially, DSCR loans allow New Jersey real estate investors to bypass the process of applying for a conventional loan. Instead, they can qualify for financing based on their DSCR, which measures a company’s cash flow versus its debt obligations.
How Does a DSCR Loan Work in New Jersey?
A traditional loan looks at the debt-to-income (DTI) ratio of the person that’s seeking to buy an investment property. A borrower that has an appropriate DTI ratio is considered as qualified for the loan because they demonstrated their ability to safely borrow. However, not all borrowers want to use their income to qualify for investment property loans for various reasons. In these cases, a debt service coverage ratio loan offers an alternative to traditional lending.
In order to qualify for a DSCR loan in New Jersey and secure financing through Griffin Funding, you must have a DSCR of .75 or above. You can use a DSCR calculator to figure out the total income of the property and compare that against the amount needed to pay the mortgage and related costs of ownership. If the property generates that much or more in income, you can potentially qualify for a DSCR loan.
How to Calculate DSCR
You can use a simple formula or a DSCR calculator to figure out if the target property generates enough income for a DSCR loan. The steps to calculate DSCR are as follows:
- Calculate the gross income from the property.
- Calculate the annual property debt including mortgage principal, taxes, interest, insurance and any other applicable fees.
- Divide the annual gross rental income by the annual debt to determine the ratio.
