HELOC on Investment Properties

7 Replies


Any tips on finding a lender that will do a HELOC on investment properties? I live in Kansas City and the couple places I've reached out to so far only offer them on primary residences.


Hi @Andrew Perkins ! I don't have an answer for you, but I'm wondering if you've tried the larger local banks? UMB, Commerce, Arvest, CapFed, Intrust. I'm using a personal HELOC now off my primary, but I'd like to make the switch to bundled rental properties at some point - these would be where I'd start.

Try local community bank or credit union for investment properties. TD and US Bank are my best recommendations.

I've gleaned these lenders from the kind people on BP. I have used PenFed and TD Bank for HELOCs on investment property. Post back if you find another lender who serves you well, and I will add them to my list and pay it forward. These were largely sourced pre-CV19, so eat the fish and spit out the bones.

The DTI percentage range varies by lender, and it is less than what you will find for an owner occupied property, due to lender risk. While qualifying for a HELOC is dependent on your home equity and your credit score, good or excellent credit makes it easier to qualify. A good average to shoot for is 620 or higher. Plus, the better your credit score, the better your interest rate.

Do you know if PenFed still has restrictions on investment properties? I recall until a year ago, they will do HELOCs on investment properties only if you have 4 or fewer?
