Sierra Pacific Mortgage—Providing loans for investors for Homes& Condos in Tahoe and Truckee since 1992

Real estate prices are at their lowest levels in many years, but as the economy continues to improve we are seeing a steady growth in property values. It is widely believed that today is the best opportunity to buy residential investment property in many parts of the country, especially in a resort area like Lake Tahoe and Truckee. With fixed income returns as low as they are, many people, whether professional investors or not, are turning to real estate to increase their returns and grow their portfolio.

When you combine lower home prices with lower interest rates, the inherent tax benefits of real property, and positive cash flows that come with these benefits, real estate has regained its strength as a key investment strategy.

We Fit the Investment Property Loan to You and Your Property

When deciding whether to fund a loan, a lender incorporates many factors into the decision process. Rates and terms on an investment property loan can be influenced by a variety of factors, including:

Financial Strength of the Investor:Obviously a very important factor in the evaluation and decision process for a mortgage banker when considering an investment property loan. Preparation early in the process is essential, as the lender will consider credit scores, liquid assets, income outside of the investment, and cash for down-payment and closing costs.

The Property being Financed:Lenders like properties in good locations that show positive cash flow. While condos may be cheaper, they can also be difficult to finance. Duplexes have great income potential, but often require larger down payments. Anything over 4-units is considered commercial and requires stricter guidelines from lenders.

Income Potential of the Property: Lenders may require some type of documentation to show that a property will create a profit in a reasonable period of time. A lender may require an appraisal report as proof of a property’s projected net income.These reports let the lender know what can be expected in terms of revenue and expense from the property.

The Size of the DownPayment: Investment property loans require a minimum of a 20% down-payment in most situations. And for down payments of 25% or higher, it is possible that there might be rate improvements available. Properties with multiple units usually require larger down-payments, although there are some exceptions.
