Investment Property Loan Interest Rates
Rates for investment property loans vary based on the variables of the loan scenario. These include the loan value, length of the loan, the location and condition of the property, and the overall perceived risk of the investment. Hard money loans typically have higher interest rates than traditional loans because conventional lenders focus on owner occupied home mortgages and do not provide financing for investment property loans. Hard money investment property loan rates in Arizona may be lower than in other states. In fact, Arizona hard money lenders create enough competition to keep the rates lower than in many other areas of the United States.
Investment Property Loan Requirements
Generally speaking, hard money lenders in Arizona require few loan requirements when compared to traditional lenders. Some of these requirements include:
Hard Money Investment Property Loans & Quick Closings
When you work with a reputable hard money lender, you can fund an investment property in a little as 3 to 5 days. In most cases, real estate investors opt for hard money loans to quickly buy a property that has become available. After securing a hard money loan, the borrower can then refinance for a longer loan term with a lower interest rate. This is particularly important when there are many real estate investors bidding on the same property. Furthermore, sellers are more likely to accept and offer from a real estate investor who has secured a hard money loan rather than a conventional loan. These experienced sellers understand that hard money lenders can approve a loan much faster than a traditional lender and with fewer issues. In some cases, a seller may even take a lower bid because they know that the escrow time will be much shorter, and they can sell their property quickly.
Rental Property Loans & Financing
Purchasing rental property is an extremely popular real estate investment strategy. In fact, real estate investors purchase these types of properties to be rented out to tenants for more than the monthly liabilities (principal, interest, taxes, insurance). In an ideal situation, the property owner will receive positive cash flow right from the beginning, although this is not always the case. Another plus is that the real estate investor will depend on the property appreciating over time and take advantage of tax benefits to maximize their profits.
Rental Properties & Hard Money Lenders
Hard money lenders are available for borrowers who want to quickly secure a loan to buy a property. In some cases, these loans are approved the same day and the funding received in just a few days. Once the loan is secured and the rental property purchased, the borrower can then start shopping around for a long-term conventional loan with a lower interest rate. In other cases, borrowers seek out hard money lenders when they are denied by a conventional lender like a bank or credit union. There are many reasons a conventional lender may deny a loan, including poor credit, too many existing conventional loans, a recent bankruptcy, or a short sale. On the other hand, hard money lenders focus primarily on the value of the property and the borrower’s equity in the property, including the down payment. This focus on value and equity allows hard money lenders to overlook poor credit and other factors that banks and credit unions focus on.
Rental Property Financing Requirements for Hard Money Lenders
When seeking a hard money loan for a rental property investment, the borrower will need at least a down payment of 25 percent since 100 percent financing is not available from hard money lenders. Rental property hard money loans are generally easy to get provided the borrower has enough to cover the down payment and the property’s holding costs.
Also, if a 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 short-term loans. The longest terms available are usually 3 to 4 years. 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 for a profit.
