No Doc Fix And Flip Financing For Real Estate Investors

This ARTICLE On Financing For Real Estate Investors Was Written By Gustan Cho NMLS 873293

The recovery of the 2008 Real Estate and Credit Collapse has been a long journey. Part of the reason why it took such a long time for the real estate market to recover was due to lack of financing for real estate investors. Fannie Mae set strict lending guidelines for financing for real estate investors where it limited the number of financed properties to a maximum of 10. Real Estate Investors who had 5 to 10 financed properties, they needed to have a minimum of 720 credit scores and had to qualify with personal debt to income ratios not greater than 45% DTI. Construction and bridge financing became obsolete where very few lenders offered it. Everything was income based and real estate investors who did not show positive income could not qualify for investment property loans. Very few investors could meet the minimum Fannie Mae 5 to 10 properties mortgage guidelines. Great news is that financing for real estate investors is now back where they can now purchase investment properties with no personal tax returns, no income verification, and no limits on the amount of properties they want in their investment portfolio. Investors do not need to meet a certain credit score either. NON-QM Loans are now back where there is no waiting period after bankruptcy and foreclosure. Bank Statement Loans are back as well as no income verification loan programs. Real estate value is appreciating 10% in many parts of the country with no sign of slowdown. With loan programs such as investment property loans and non-qm mortgages, property values is expected to increase in the years to come. Fix and flip mortgage loan programs are being offered by many lenders nationwide.
