Converting a Rehab into a Rental

2 Replies

I'm in the middle of a second flip property in Fayetteville, NC, and we've decided to investigate turning it into a rental to add to our portfolio.

Currently, we are using a Rehab LOC from the bank to finance the purchase and repairs (75% of purchase price and 75% of repairs).

Does anyone have suggestions on how to finance this into a 30 year mortgage? A couple of banks and brokers said I may need to hold onto it for a year before I can refi it based on ARV.

ARV should be $115k. Bought it for $60k and have put in about $35k.

Complicating matters - I already have 4 residential loans: primary residence and 3 rentals.

Potential solutions - my wife isn't on any of my property loans and neither is my business partner, so maybe they can "buy" the property?

You can get more than 4 loans. But waiting the year may be necessary. I would try credit unions and small regional banks.
