HELOC for investment

10 Replies

Im looking for a HELOC for an investment property that is free and clear. What can I expect in loan to value and interest. I wish to use this to purchase investment properties for cash, then refinance using BRRR. Can anyone help me in getting this started. My score is above 680.

@Freddie Williams .  Not true.  Local credit unions and community banks are the go-to for many.

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 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.

@Freddie Williams Using a HELOC to pay cash for properties, and eventually refi after a 'seasoning period' or BRRRR, is a great move! I'm working with an out-of-state investor at the moment and we are under contract on a house that he made a cash offer on using his HELOC.

He was able to get a 5/15 (5 year term @ 15 year amortization) at a little under 4% interest. I believe they gave him a 70% LTV on his primary residence and he has a great credit score.

His plan is to purchase, season for 6 months, refinance, pay off the HELOC, repeat. I'm excited to see how this works out in the next couple of years.

@Alan Bostick Even better. I will have him look into that for this deal. Refinancing sooner rather than later, especially with these low rates, would be ideal! Thanks for the heads up.
