Today on Real Estate Mortgage Shoppe, I’m going to talk about some of the most popular loan programs used by  real estate investors and ways you can still buy rental property with nothing down. Phillip Kemp of Reed and Associates of TN will be talking about property management solutions for landlords and people in transition.

Phillip Kemp has been working with Reed and Associates for a few years now as a property manager.  Reed and Associates is a long-standing property management company and has been offering property management solutions to hundreds of homeowners. <Phillip Kemp introduces himself and what he does at Associate.>

  • (Jo) As a mortgage loan officer, in addition to really listening to my clients and knowing which mortgage product will help them, I also watch the market daily to see what is available today and what is on the horizon tomorrow.  This past week was tumultuous for the bond market and took the prices on mortgage rates straight up to around 30YR FIXED – 3.75-3.875%; FHA/VA – 3.5-3.75%, 15 YEAR FIXED – 3.125%-3.25% This is the largest rate price increase since 2013 and some market analysts think  it might may be establishing a theme of upwardly directed rates. My dad used to talk about grabbing a good deal before goes away by saying, “You can’t steal in slow motion.”  Don’t miss your opportunity to refinance to a lower rate or buy a house with an ultra-low payment.  But the longer  you wait, the less buying power you will have due to higher interest costs making the payment higher.  Whether you are buying a primary  residence, a second home or an investment property, as the interest rates go up it lowers the amount for your  qualification on a payment . On a $200,000 loan with the rate going from 3.5% to 3.875% makes a difference of about $42/mo.

<Phillip Kemp of Reed and Associates of TN makes a comment here >

(Jo)  A popular recurring question about buying real estate investment properties  asked by listeners and customers is this one—Can I buy real estate for investment with zero down?  My answer in most cases is “in many cases you CAN still buy real estate investment with zero down.”  Traditional loans require at least 20% down, however if you want to go treasure hunting with me, you may be amazed at the different places we can find other money that could be used to fund the 20% down payment, allowing you to get in for zero down or fairly close with some big gigantic bragging rights for yourself.

Before I got in the mortgage business several years ago, I had an awesome opportunity to be mentored personally by the famous author and zero down real estate investor, Robert G Allen, who wrote the books, Nothing Down, Creating Wealth and The Challenge.  I flew to San Diego and spent all day every day for several days with Robert Allen and a few other people like myself hungry to learn how to think outside the box to be successful in real estate and real estate financing. We learned 50 ways to buy houses with nothing down.   Even though I have not used all 50 zero down scenarios, on my first personal real estate deal, I not only got in for nothing down but left the closing table with a $600 check.   I HAVE used a number of nothing down formulas for clients needing zero down and in the course of working with various customers, we have come up with a few of our own which are different than the original ones as lending regulations have evolved .

<Philip Kemp makes comments >

(Jo) Since today we are covering ways to make money buying real estate, here are some rules that some of my more successful real estate investor customers use and I do too.

  1. Remember that when you buy real estate rental property, you are buying a business. You need to buy at a price and terms so that you are making an acceptable positive cash flow on day one and you need more than one exit strategy. If you concentrate first on making sure your mortgage terms allow you a low enough payment to make an acceptable cash flow, then you have an option of keeping the property for income or selling it later outright later.   One way to insure that you are getting a great cash flow on your properties is to refinance if you can lower your interest rate cost—especially if you can use a special HARP refinance program or an FHA streamline or other type special streamline refinance program with no appraisal required.  It’s a big money saver and you can use the money saved to invest into making even more money.  You can do this on your own, or you can invite me and my assistant Susan to by walk with you on the financing side of reaching your dream.  On Real Estate Mortgage Shoppe we always say MAKE YOUR PLAN, LET’S WORK YOUR PLAN. IF THE DEAL WORKS FOR YOU TODAY, LET’S DO IT TODAY.  Call me personally directly after the show at 901 482-0354 901 482-0354 or connect with me at JoGarner.com but you have to talk with me personally.  Or you can call while we are live in the studio today November 12, 2016 at (901) 535-9732.  (901 535-9732.

Phillip, what are some solutions you offer your homeowner clients on the property management side ?

QUESTIONS ANSWERED BY JO GARNER:

  1. What mortgage programs are most popular with real estate investors?
    • Fannie Mae fixed rate mortgage with 20% down payment when you are purchasing a rental property. If you are purchasing a primary residence there are loan programs available where you might be able to get a 100% loan or 3% to 3.5% down payment perhaps with down payment assistance.  Most rental property purchases will require at least 20% down payment.
    • The Quick Cash Back Investor Refinance program (that’s what I call it) that I use for my real estate rental property investors who pay cash for the property or use a loan secured on something OTHER than that property. In most cases I can refinance that property that they just paid cash for  right away for up to 75% of the appraised value of the property or the amount that they paid for it at closing whichever amount is less.  But my investor clients can get their money within around 30 days or less without having to wait out the 6 months seasoning period required on other programs. There are some special requirements on this product though. Call me and let’s see if it will work for you.
    • Substitution of Collateral –This is when you buy a house but use a loan secured on a different piece of property or a loan secured on something else altogether.
  2. Where can real estate investors get the money for down payment so they can buy nothing down?
  3. Treasure hunting for down payment funds. Using OPM-Other People’s Money
  • Owner occupied homes only require zero to 5% down payment.  Investment properties require at least 20% down.
  • Substitution of collateral
  • Borrowing against your 401K
  • Cash out refinances on other homes you own other than the rental house you are trying to buy
  • Cash value in a life insurance policy
  • Find a real estate investing partner with cash.

ABOUT EVE SOTIRIOU, LANDLORD

eve soteriou

Eve Sotiriou is a landlord in living in Waterville, Maine. She listens to Real Estate Mortgage Shoppe on iHeart Radio.  Her story is like many others because Eve went through a major life event which caused her to have to move from her home in Durham, Maine, but she did not want to sell during this time because real estate prices were in a slump.  Instead, she hired a property management company to rent the property and manage it, so that she would be able to sell her home at a later time.

Whatever their personal priorities are, my job is to put together a mortgage with comfortable terms that will help them achieve their goals.”
