Ability to Pay Monthly Payment

Conventional loan lenders compare your personal income to your monthly loan payment, primary residence mortgage and more. Private lenders look at the property appraised value, potential monthly cash flow, fair market rent, etc.

Ability to Repay the Loan

This will depend on the type of loan, current interest rates, down payment size and other factors. Traditional banks look at 2 years of personal tax returns, employment history, cash reserves and your credit report. Hard money lenders will look at acquisition purchase price, after-repair value, construction costs, potential monthly rental income, Texas rental market trends, etc.

Larger Down Payment

Real estate investment loans generally require a larger down payment. Expect a 10-35% down payment.

FAQ for Investment Property Loans

What type of investment property loans do you offer?

Curlee Capital works with private lenders who offer:

  • Purchase 30-year rental loans
  • Refinance loan options
  • Cash out financing
  • Fix and flip loans
  • ARM rental property financing
  • Multi-family loans

Why are the interest rates higher for investment properties?

Hard money loans are specifically designed for real estate investing. Unlike a traditional mortgage, real estate investors do not have to provide personal income, tax returns or even employment history.

For example, rental loans for multi-family properties (landlord loans) are based on the potential revenue stream (monthly rental income) they can generate. Therefore, lenders take on more risk when issuing multi-family loans.

Texas has a thriving economy, landlord-friendly laws, affordable rental properties, no state income tax and a population of over 30,029,572 people. This makes it an ideal state for real estate investors.
