It’s based on a one-to-one mortgage/income ratio. For example, if the borrower’s mortgage payment on the subject property is $1,000, the potential income needs to be $1,000. The income can be less. However, each case scenario is based on a case-by-case basis. In the following paragraphs, we will cover investor cash-flow mortgage guidelines for investment properties.

Borrowers’ income tax is not required. We do not underwrite the borrower. The lender only underwrites the subject property. The subject property needs to be income-producing. It is a one-to-one match. The proposed mortgage payment needs to match the potential rental income. So if the proposed PITI is $1,500 per month, the potential rental income needs to be $1,500 per month.

There is no limit on the amount of property the investor has on their portfolio like Fannie Mae’s 5 to 10 Financed Properties. Fannie Mae’s 5 to 10 Financed Property Guidelines limit the amount of property an investor can have to 10.

Our investor cash-flow mortgage program does not have such a limit. The maximum amount of property one borrower can have with the Investor Cash-Flow Loan Program is up to 5 investment properties. The maximum loan amount would cap at $2.5 million per borrower.

How Does Investor Cash-Flow Mortgage Loans Work

An Investor Cash-Flow Mortgage is designed for real estate investors who want to purchase investment properties. This type of mortgage is structured differently from traditional mortgages. It is tailored to the unique needs of real estate investors. Here are some key features and aspects of an Investor Cash-Flow Mortgage for Investment Properties:

Rental Income Consideration

One of the primary features of an Investor Cash-Flow Mortgage is that it considers the rental income generated by the investment property. Lenders typically consider a portion of the rental income as part of the borrower’s qualifying income, which can help investors qualify for a larger loan.

Debt-Service Coverage Ratio (DSCR)

Lenders often use a Debt-Service Coverage Ratio to assess the property’s ability to generate rental income to cover the subject property’s housing payments. A DSCR of 1.0 or higher is typically required, meaning the property’s rental income should exceed the mortgage payments.

Down Payment For Investor Cash-Flow Mortgage Loans

Investors may be required to make a higher down payment than traditional mortgages. The down payment requirement depends on factors such as the investor’s creditworthiness, the type of property, and the lender’s policies.

Interest rates on Investor Cash-Flow Mortgages may be slightly higher than rates for primary residences. Lenders may charge a premium due to the perceived higher risk associated with investment properties.

The type of investment property can impact the mortgage terms. Lenders may have different guidelines for single-family homes, multi-unit, or commercial properties. Borrowers must still meet credit and income requirements to qualify for an Investor Cash-Flow Mortgage. Lenders will assess the borrower’s financial stability and creditworthiness.

Investor Cash-Flow Mortgage Lenders

 Some lenders may limit the number of investment properties an individual can finance using this type of mortgage. Lenders may inquire about the investor’s plans for property management. Having a property management strategy in place can be important for approval.

Some non-QM wholesale mortgage lenders require borrowers’ cash reserves to cover unexpected expenses or periods of vacancy for the investment property.

Real estate investors must shop and compare different lenders to find the best terms and rates for an Investor Cash-Flow Mortgage. Additionally, investors should have a clear business plan for their investment properties, including an understanding of potential rental income and expenses, to present to lenders.
