THINKING OF USING THE BRRR METHOD?

    This method of financing works best when you find under valued or wholesale property that you can force appreciation by doing some renovations or updates to the property.

    This method isn't best used on property that you purchase at retail value. You are better off using conventional purchase financing for this transaction.

    CASH OUT FINANCING

    A cash out refinance is a refinance of your primary or investment property that allows you to pull equity up to the required LTV limits. The mortgage can either be paid off free and clear or can have a low enough balance on the current mortgage versus the value, to make it worth pulling out the equity in the property. Cash out refinances are available on primary, second homes and investment properties.

    • The typical cash out financing is done after 6 months of owning the property, based on ARV and available for mortgaged properties #1-10. Please see delayed financing for less than 6 months after closing.
