A Custom Solution for a 1-4 unit Investor Property

By: Zack North

A popular investment strategy in today’s market

Real estate investors see a great deal of value in both single family rental homes and 2-4 unit multifamily properties.  Some investors execute fix-and-flip strategies with these properties, while others see more promise in holding onto the units for a long period of time.

The long-term strategy investors have in mind when purchasing these properties will determine the type of loan they need.

Investors actually have more options than they might think, since commercial lenders can also offer solutions for 1-4 unit rental properties.

Still, the usual challenges remain for prospective borrowers.  Even with all the lending options available in today’s market, many investors find that they are not able to qualify for bank or Fannie Mae programs.

In these cases, it may be a good idea to follow the lead of this investor in New York who partnered with Commercial Direct for their cash-out refinance.

A Commercial Direct solution in Freeport, New York

An investor in New York wanted to take cash out of their single family rental property they owned free and clear in the city of Freeport.  They requested a $145,000 loan and they did not want to provide tax return documentation.

Our team at Commercial Direct was able to accommodate both requests.  As a result, the investor was able to take on an additional investment opportunity they had in mind.
