5 Paths to Financing Your Loan

As you can see, there are 5 paths to take with financing your properties:

  1. Standard/Traditional
  2. Non-Standard
  3. Local Banks
  4. EZ Loan
  5. Limited Credit or Experience Loans (also known as Non-QM)

So, which loan type is best for your project so you can boost your cash flow and reach your goals faster? Find out here on our sister site, Investor Real Estate Loans.

What’s Your 2-Year Plan?

Close your eyes. Clear your mind. Take a deep breath.

Now, let’s pretend we’re talking to each other two years from now. What happened during that time period that made you proud and put a smile on your face? How does your cash flow look? What kind of work schedule do you have? How does life look for you and your family?

When it comes to investing, we have discovered that thinking ahead two years leads to the most success. Why two years? Well, it’s short enough to imagine without being overwhelming, and it’s long enough to create tangible, positive change in your life.

Coming up with a plan is as easy as one, two, three:

Step 1: Imagine where you want to be in two years.

Step 2: Evaluate where you’re starting at today.

Step 3: Create a plan that connects your current reality to your future dreams.

How do you formulate an actual plan? Well, that’s what our team is here to help you do. It’s just a matter of picking up the phone and giving us a call to chat.

One conversation can change your future…and your life!

What is your credit score costing you?

How much money might a lackluster credit score be costing you over the life of your investment business?

the impact of your credit score

You probably hear a lot of talk in the mortgage industry about your credit score and the effect it can have on your interest rates, but do you really have an idea of how much it’s affecting your bottom dollar?

Do you know how to determine your Return on Credit (ROC)?

Can you crunch the numbers to figure out how much your score is helping your cash-flow? How about how much money it’s sucking out every month?)

These calculations can get complicated, but the takeaway here is that a less-than-stellar score can really be costing your tens of thousands of dollars over the lifetime of your loan. And when your loan is on investment property, (or several,) you may as well be lighting your profits on fire.

a less than perfect credit score is eating away at your profit.

Quick to Buy, Quick to Refi – A New Rental Investment Strategy

Quick to Buy, Quick to Refi, a new 2-step loan strategy, helps you maximize your loan amounts while limiting the amount of cash you put into a project. It also helps you rapidly finish your projects and buy again, and again, and again.

What does that all mean? It means you no longer need to worry about missing out on great deals and getting stuck in expensive hard money loans.

The Quick to Buy, Quick to Refi strategy all starts with properly setting up your short AND long-term loans.

Now, even though your short-term loan will come first (to quickly buy an under market property from a wholesaler), a key step is to FIRST get pre-qualified for the long-term loan. Why? To ensure you’re able to maximize both loan amounts. If you can qualify for a larger loan upfront, then it’s likely your short-term lender will match that amount.

It also means you’re already going through the process for securing a long-term loan as you begin renovating a property with a short-term loan. Think, “Two birds, one stone.” By the time you finish renovations, you’re ready to refinance into a long-term loan.

But, hold on. You also need to know about the types of refinances. There are two you need to know about: “rate and term” and “cash out”. And yes, it matters you know the differences.

2-Step Loan Program: Quick to Buy, Quick to Refi

2-Step Loan Program: Quick to Buy, Quick to Refi

One of the key factors to making more on your investments is working with a lender who can handle your short-term AND long-term loans. Or rather, help you quickly buy and quickly refinance a property.

Why find a 2-Step loan program?

Well, most investors don’t have the luxury of closing a deal in 30 plus days. They need to close as fast as possible, especially if they’re buying from a wholesaler with a strict deadline.

However, many investors are nervous about using non-traditional funding (like hard money) to close a deal upfront. What if they get stuck in an expensive loan for months and months? What if they can’t get approved for a long-term loan and get stuck with that expensive loan?

That’s why it’s so important to work with a lender who can handle both sides of the coin. And not just any lender, but a lender who has experience with short-term and long-term loans.

Benefits of working with experienced lenders:

When you work with an experienced lender who offers a 2-Step Loan Program, you’ll:

  • Be able to quickly buy and quickly refinance a property.
  • Maximize your return on credit.
  • Maximize your refinance.
  • Enjoy less confusion and stress.

Think of a 2-Step Loan Program like a one-stop-shop for all of your real estate loans.

Less work, less hassle, more money.
