New BRRRR Lending Options to Consider in a Down Market

With inflation, typical rental property loans may not do the trick. Here are some new BRRRR lending options for you.

With rates so good over the last three to four years, all BRRRR investors were looking at one loan product – the 30-year fixed mortgage.

With rates increasing, however, you might need to look beyond the 30-year fixed loan to get into good BRRRR properties. Here are some options that can bridge your properties until rates go down.

ARMs (Adjustable-Rate Mortgages) for BRRRR

You can get three-, five-, or seven-year ARMs. Whichever time length you pick, the rates will be fixed during that period. Afterward, the rates become adjustable.

In rising markets, these loans aren’t that great. In declining markets, though, they can be the perfect loan to bridge you into a rental property.

You can get an ARM for .5-2% lower than a 30-year fixed mortgage. These lower rates can cash flow a property until either prices go up and you can sell, or rates go down and you can refinance.

Interest-Only Lending Options

With the interest-only BRRRR lending option, you don’t pay any principal for the first ten years.

An interest-only loan is appealing right now because it keeps cash flowing. Your loan amount doesn’t go down, so it’s not a great option for the long-term. But it is a good lending option to get you into a property during this next market.

40-Year AM (Adjustable Mortgage)

A 40-year AM spreads the loan payments over 40 years instead of the 30 with a traditional fixed mortgage. This adjustable mortgage gives you lower monthly payments… and more cash flow.

What To Keep In Mind with These New BRRRR Lending Options

ARMs give lower rates, 40-year AMs offer lower payments, and interest-only loans postpone the principle.

Keep in mind: these loans won’t help your equity or get a property paid down quickly. But they are good options to get into properties while values are low and funding is tight.

Remember that conditions of BRRRR are ever-changing. Get plugged into the money side of investing, and talk to lenders to see what’s available for you in inflationary times.

How to Set Up Your BRRRR Lenders

People who win at BRRRR understand the two most important aspects of the process: getting properties undermarket, and organizing their lenders early on.

Lenders are an important member of your investment team. Here’s how to get them ready for your BRRRR investments.

BRRRR Lender Options

You’ll have a hard money or private money lender up-front. Then, in the second half of the project, you’ll have a more conventional lender with a traditional loan.

This traditional loan is usually 30-year with fixed rates, but comes with some constraints. You’re limited to ten properties with this kind of loan (including your own home). There’s also usually a limit on loan-to-value ratio, and conventional loans won’t let you put a loan in an LLC’s name.

Another option for this second loan is DSCR no-income loans. DSCR loans come in a variety of options: five- or seven-year ARMs, standard 30-year fixed mortgages, and more. Successful BRRRR investors know all their options for refinancing.

Set Your Lenders Up Ahead of Time

People who win at BRRRR set up all their lenders before they jump into a deal.

The amount loaned for the purchase and for rehab can very a lot from lender to lender. Good investors will always know how much their hard money lenders will give them.

Hard Money Mike, for example, does a lot of 100% loans if the cost is 75% less than ARV because we know the investor can easily refinance out. We know we can set them up with a rate-and-term refinance, and they’ll have no money out-of-pocket.

BRRRR winners don’t get into a property, get it fixed up, and then figure out the long-term loan. Winners figure out first whether they can get the cash out they need, and how.

Smart BRRRR investors have a pool of lenders they work with. They know what each lender can offer, and which will best fit their current strategy, ability, and deal.
