Funding For Long Term Rental Properties

Buying a rental property is one of the most popular forms of real estate investment. Real estate investors purchase a rental property that can be rented to a tenant for more than the monthly liabilities (principal, interest, taxes, insurance). Ideally the real estate investor will achieve positive cash flow from the beginning, but this isn’t always feasible.

Buying a rental property is one of the most popular forms of real estate investment. Real estate investors purchase a rental property that can be rented to a tenant for more than the monthly liabilities (principal, interest, taxes, insurance). Ideally the real estate investor will achieve positive cash flow from the beginning, but this isn’t always feasible. The real estate investor will also depend on the property appreciating and take advantage of tax benefits in order to maximize their profits from purchase of the long term rental.

Hard Money Lenders for Rental Properties

Hard money loans for rental property are often used in situations where the borrower needs to act quickly to secure the property. The process to obtain a rental property loan from a conventional lender can take months and involve mountains of paperwork. Rental property loans from hard money lenders can be approved same-day and funding can be completed within days if needed. Once the rental property hard money loan has been used to secure the property, the owner can begin looking into longer term loan options if needed.

Some borrowers will use hard money lenders for rental properties after being denied by conventional lenders such as banks and credit unions. Conventional lenders may deny a borrower’s loan request for the various reasons including having too many existing conventional loans, poor credit or other negative issues on their recent record (bankruptcy, foreclosure, short sale, etc.). When analyzing a rental property loan, hard money lenders focus primarily on the value of the property and the borrower’s equity (down payment) in the property. The focus on value and equity allows the hard money lender to overlook many issues which would be red flags for banks.

Rental Property Financing Requirements for Hard Money Lenders

Rental property financing from a hard money lender generally requires a down payment of at least 20% from the real estate investor. 100% financing is not available. Hard money loans for rental property are typically easy to obtain as long as the real estate investor has the necessary down payment available as well as sufficient cash or income to cover the property’s holding costs. Rental property hard money lenders are able to overlook poor credit scores and items on a borrower’s record such as foreclosures, bankruptcies, short sales, loan modifications and other issues that would prevent other lenders from providing investment loans for rental property.

If the real estate investor has sufficient equity in another property but does not have enough cash for a down payment, the real estate investor may be able to take out a cash out refinance loan in order to raise the funds for the down payment on the new rental property purchase. The lender will also want to see that the investor has enough cash reserves available to deal with potential tenant vacancies, repairs and any other unforeseen issues.

Rental property loans from hard money lenders are not typically long-term loans. The longest terms available are usually 6 months to 2 year terms. Hard money loans for rental properties are often amortized over 30 years but a balloon payment will be due after the agreed upon term. The lender will want to know the real estate investor’s intended exit strategy upfront to understand how the borrower will repay the rental property loan. The exit strategy may involve refinancing the rental property loan into a long-term conventional loan or selling the property.

A cash out refinance loan allows the borrower to quickly pull equity from the existing property in order to reinvest in another property.
