I currently live in Jersey City, but I work in Manhattan. Any good recommendations on banks/credit unions that are investor-friendly in Jersey or Manhattan? I am looking for deals now, but wanted to plan ahead on which bank to use for the refi.
I have used Loandepot for my primary home in Jersey City. They are extremely fast and reliable. I don't have experience with them in regards to investment properties.
Find a good broker who will shop your deal to multiple banks and advocate for you. I had a very good experience with Progress Capital Advisors. You can PM me for my contacts there.
