BUYING REAL ESTATE NEAR EMERGING MARKETS-DAYO DEKKER’S STORY

(Jo) Shawn, I have been in the mortgage business for over 25 years. Even though I specialize in purchase or refinance lending on 1-4 unit residential homes for primary residence, vacation homes and investment property, I have seen over the years right here in Memphis, the positive impact our commercial real estate districts can have on surrounding residential neighborhoods.
It reminds me of a real estate investor we will call Dayo Dekker. Dayo worked in a high pressure profession where his income was 100% commission. Dayo spent years suffering through feast and famine at his house depending on how the market treated him. He desperately needed a steady source of income to carry him through lean times on his commission job.
Dayo Dekker begin buying only rental homes in close proximity to streets where homes were being revitalized and renovated. He did not buy on the same street where revitalization was actively taking place but he bought ahead of the path where the revitalization was headed so he could still buy at a low enough price to get a good profit from his tenants and yet he could see his values pop up quicker as more and more other investors started buying around him and fixing up houses. Dayo bought ahead of the curve for a quicker return on income and value.

If you, like Dayo Dekker, want to look at buying a one-to-four unit rental property in growing areas, contact me and let’s do a test drive on some financing options to see what will work best for you and give you the positive cash flow you need when you make your purchase.

I even have some investor products for good credit borrowers where you do not have to qualify with tax returns and traditional income qualification formulas. We can take the monthly lease income compared with your principal, interest, taxes and insurance mortgage payment to qualify you—very much like a business loan. And there is no limit on how many financed properties you own. We can talk a little more about these financing options later in the show today.

TOPICS COVERED BY JO GARNER, MORTGAGE LOAN OFFICER

1. How can residential real estate investors gain momentum in building their profit and portfolios?
A. Tom King, a regular co-host on Real Estate Mortgage Shoppe says, “the quickest way to get rich, is to get rich slow…” But here’s a quick way to get a lot of your cash back when you have to use credit lines to pay cash for a property but want to pay your credit line back so you can use it to buy the next property.

I have shared the story of one of my super-star mortgage clients, we will call Niles Nelson. Niles set up several credit lines for himself so he could use them to pay cash for properties at a discounted price and do some fix-ups on the home. The positive cash back each month was great, but he needed to pay off the credit lines quickly so he could go and buy another house and make even more income.

Niles used what I call the Quick Cash Back Refinance. For investors who have cash or credit lines set up to purchase fixer upper properties for cash and fix them up, they can get the money they used to purchase the house back right after they finish the repairs without having to wait out the 6 months seasoning requirement. The 6 month seasoning requirement on the traditional 15, 20 or 30 year cash out refinance on investment property means that people buying a home for investment must own the property for at least 6 months before doing a refinance and getting cash back from the loan.

If you are a real estate investor with good credit who needs to buy a rental property, but you may be self-employed and not show a lot of income on your tax returns, we can look at a new product that will does only looks at the lease income on the house you are purchasing compared to the mortgage payment including the taxes and insurance. On this program there is no traditional verification of employment. The only income verification is the income on the lease compared to your new mortgage payment. (Very easy)

 

ERNIE EMLER-USING CASH OUT REFINANCE TO FINANCE HIS BUSINESS EXPANSION

Ernie Emler owned his own business in the agricultural business. A few years ago Ernie had a chance to grab a larger chunk of the places buying his product. He needed a couple of hundred dollars to expand quickly so he could deliver and get paid. He wanted to keep the $200,000 working for him in his business so he did not want a credit line with a variable rate that would be sliding up and down all of the time.

I was sitting out on my back patio one pleasant spring day drinking coffee. I had my laptop open when my phone rang. It was Ernie ready to share with me about an exciting opportunity he had to expand his profits for his business. “I’m looking for cheap money that will stay cheap for the next 5 years or so. I am going to make a double digit return on this money.”

He owned a free and clear home worth about $800,000 dollars. He borrowed about $200,000 on a mortgage with a 3. Something percent interest rate back then that was a fixed rate for the first 5 years before it converted to an adjustable rate with strong safety caps. This was cheap money compared to what some of the banks were offering to extend credit on businesses. He closed on this refinance and walked away from the table with bragging rights.

Some of my self-employed clients are more interested in a credit line that they can use, pay off or pay down and use again. Many times they will secure a home equity line of credit on their home to start a business or expand a business. They secure it on their home so that the interest rates are better, even though they are variable. It beats the higher rates they might get on a business loan.
