What is an Investment Property Loan?
Griffin Funding offers investment property loans for those interested in buying or refinancing rental properties and second homes, whether it is a single family home, condominium, PUD, or multi-family dwelling.
A non-owner-occupied conventional loan of 75% of the lower of appraised value or the purchase price is the most often available loan from the majority of lending institutions, but Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will make financing available up to the 80% loan-to-value level. Since mortgage insurance is not available for investment properties, investment purchase loans usually require a minimum 20% down payment.
Conventional lenders generally charge a quarter to one-half percent more interest on a loan for a rental home than if the same home were used as the primary address for the borrower. Of all kinds of residential rental properties, the single-family home offers the lowest interest rate.
If your current home has enough equity, you may be able to use it to buy additional property.
We also offer alternative lending for experienced real estate investors based on the debt service coverage ratio (DSCR) of the property. Investors can put as little as 20% down and qualify off of the cash flow of the investment property. Click here for more information on our Debt Service Coverage Ratio Investor Loans.
