Condotel Unit Requirements

  • Our condo hotel mortgage loans wholesale lender is requiring that a condotel have at least one bedroom and a functional kitchen in order for them to consider financing a condotel unit in California, Illinois or Florida.

  • The condotel portfolio lender wants to make sure that the condotel project is structurally safe and that the condotel project is not financially distressed.

Credit Requirements

There are strict requirements for condo hotel mortgage loans borrowers.

  • Minimum credit scores requirements apply. 
  • We require that the condotel mortgage loan borrower have at least a 680 FICO credit score. 
  • For those who have lower than 680 FICO credit scores, they would have to wait until they can boost their credit scores to 680 FICO. 
  • There are no exceptions. 
  • I can help those folks who have lower than a 680 FICO credit scores improve their credit scores.

Cash Reserve Requirements

We require that the condo hotel mortgage loans borrower have at least a one year’s reserve for the subject property as well as other properties they own.

  • For example, if the condotel unit mortgage borrower has a single family home in California, Illinois and wants to purchase a condotel unit in Florida, we require that the borrower have one years reserves of principal, interest, taxes, and insurance for both the principal residence as well as the subject condotel’s proposed principal, interest, taxes, insurance, and HOA payments.
