Hello BP Family
First I want to thank you all for help guiding me in acquiring my first rental property.
My only dilemma is that I really want to buy more rental properties but the down payment required by many of the lenders are a minimum of 20% or higher (They said that is the new requirement set up by Fannie and Freddie on investment properties). Just this rental property I acquired took up most of the capital I had to invest.
However, I see my colleagues here on BP who are saying they are acquiring their 5th-10th property. I just want to know what lender are they using to obtain these properties without using so much of their own capital.
All in all I just want to know if there are any lenders out there, that you guys know, who are willing to mortgage a property without requiring a high down payment?
I cannot house-hack. I don't want to use hard-money lenders. The credit unions I know ask for an 75%-80% LTV so that is out. I may be willing to do a partnership.
Please BP members, tell me your secret.
@Brian Adzadi , afaik, it's still only 15% for investment SFRs (only).
Here at BP, I read that the easiest way of getting your initial 20-25% deposit back is by making sure that every deal you do has more than 25% extra equity built into it, so that you can refinance 6 months later up to the same 75-80% LTV, which would have your Lender loaning you back your original deposit - as cash-out for your next "BRRRR" Buy!
Does your first deal have that 25%+ extra equity built in?
If not - it's back to: saving up! [They do say: Money's made (or lost) when you Buy!] Good luck.
