First BRRR - Reno complete, financing questions

2 Replies

I have completed the reno on my first BRRR. Numbers below:

2/bd 1/ba w/ higher end finishes. I self manage the property

Purchase price: 16k

Rehab/holding costs to date: 69k

Appraised: 97.9k

Rent: 1000/mo 

Vacancy: 50/mo

Repairs: 50/mo

Capex: 70/mo (new furnace, roof, appliances, plumbing, wiring, everything. expect little-no capex for awhile)

Taxes: 47.83/mo
Cash flow: 782/mo


So far, I'm feeling alright. I don't think I knocked it out of the park, I learned a lot, and would do things differently (as far as rehab) now. I'm happy with a 13% ROI.

I just got a LOI from a private/hard money lender. I have not received any sort of settlement statement that shows disbursement amounts, which seems weird. I've gotten a loan on my primary residence before, never an investment, so I'm not sure if that's why I'm so blown away.

Details below:

75% LTV

7.825% Interest

4 points or 5k (whichever is GREATER)

$1,495 in processing and underwriting fees

I BELIEVE I'm still on the cuff for an appraisal and potential rental analysis. (650+)

After refi, numbers below:

Expenses: 759.03

Cashflow: 240.97

ROI: 15.8%

The numbers obviously make sense, and show improvement with refi. But that money seems really expensive. Can you guys share what you're paying for a similar loan? Who are you guys using for your No Doc/No DTI/Cash out refi loans? Unfortunately I just bought my primary, so my DTI is high making traditional financing not possible.


This is a little high for asset based lenders, but not way out of spec.

interest rates are on the rise, and investment margins are shrinking so risk is going up.

Thank you for the reply. This motivates me to find a different lender, as I have not accepted any terms yet. Again I have not received a settlement statement, but I believe I'd be walking away with less than 67k after close, still paying the 7.825% on the full 75k. Just seems like a lot of added risk/over leveraging for an additional 2.6% ROI to me.
