Possibly opening escrow on an investment property - off market.
I have a few existing investment properties - all conventional loans. The new purchase would also be a conventional loan.
Per guidelines, what is the minimum reserve needed on my existing properties, and the subject property to qualify for a loan?
Thanks in advance
in the past.. Reserves for a conventional investor loan have been 6 months piti minimum.
I have heard, as little as 3 months.
For me it's been 6 months,and one bank likes to see that the money has been in an account for awhile
Here is a blog I wrote on cash reserves.
Cash Reserves Required For Other Properties Owned by Investor;
- If the borrower has 1-4 mortgages, an additional two (2) months for every other SFR investment property and second home is required and additional six (6) months for every other 2-4 unit investment property and second home
- If the borrower has 5-10 mortgages, An additional six (6) months for every other investment property and second home.
I have this page bookmarked for easy reference, I use it 4 or 5 times a week. good stuff.
@Jeremy Pace I am so glad you find the blogs helpful! I have more to write up. I just need more time in the day!
