Private Lending to cover your down payment

4 Replies

A little bit about me -

I have one 3 unit multi family in upstate ny. Albany Ny to be specific, I purchased this back in April 2019 and provides me on average 20% cash on cash, little over $300 a door.

It would provide me more if I wasn't paying off my HELOC which I used as for purchasing the house (down payment and closing cost) so theoretically I purchased the property with $0 out of my pocket.

Now I'm hungry for more but hitting road blocks in finding financing, traditional lenders (primary lenders) require minimum of 20/25 percent down for investment properties, is it possible to get a secondary loan to pay for that down payment / closing costs? If so, how? And where should I be looking for them and what should I be asking lenders in regards to it? I don't want to come off as cheap by asking. I'd love to hear from people and their tips and processes they've put in place. I am looking for partners but also iffy on how to structure deals if it's equity partners.

Generally how are equity partner splits done? If there is 100k required for down payment and closing costs and let's say there are 2 partners..

Partner A brings in 60k and Partner B puts in 40k, does that make the equity split 60% to Partner A and 40% to Partner B.

Is the profit /cash flow split generally kept at same percentage as the equity splits?

@Nate Marshall

All the properties I've looked at are multi family because my mentality was to increase cash flow but I see you're a private money lender. I'd love to talk to privately to see options for lending
