FAQs about Residential Investment Property Loans

Accordion Section

In many ways, an investment property or portfolio loan works the same as a conventional mortgage on your primary residence. You agree to borrow an amount of money and pay it back through your loan term according to your loan option.
At Power Financial Credit Union, we offer adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) residential investment loans so you get a fixed rate and payment for the initial period of your loan, and then it adjusts with the markets. The total loan term may be up to 25 years.

Like other real estate loans, you can get pre-approved to find out how much you may borrow and what rate you'll likely get for your chosen ARM term.

The main difference is how real estate investors use the property:
  • Instead of living in the property, you usually find tenants to live there and pay you rent
  • The rent your tenants pay should at least cover your monthly mortgage payment
  • You will need cash reserves to pay for maintenance and repairs
  • You may need to pay for advertising to find tenants or hire a property management company to select tenants for you
There are two main ways you can make money by investing in real estate:
  • You may earn rental income each month if you charge your tenants enough to cover the mortgage payment and expenses, plus extra
  • When you sell your home, you may make a profit if the home appreciates in value and you gain home equity. Just be aware your property could also lose value
Before you buy an investment property, make sure you run the numbers to work out your likely return on investment or ROI.
Most portfolio lenders require a down payment of at least 25% of the market value of the property to qualify for an investment property loan.

This is because investment property loans are considered higher risk than conventional loans as you may also be making monthly payments on your primary residence or other rental properties.

Before you choose your portfolio lender, you may want to find out if they will continue to service your loan in the long term or if your loan will be sold on the secondary market to another financial institution.
You don't need to own a primary residence that you live in, but you must show that you're financially secure so you can meet mortgage payments in times when you do not have tenants in your investment property.

You'll need to provide documents including:
  • Tax returns
  • W-2s
  • Bank statements
Funds for an investment property can be used for a Single Family Rental, Condo, Townhouse, Duplex, Triplex, or Quadplex. No investment mobile homes.
A residential investment property loan does come with closing costs, but you can add these costs onto your loan principal if you don't want to pay upfront.

Your closing costs may include charges like:
  • An origination fee and application fee
  • Title search and insurance to check for existing liens on the property
  • Appraisal fees
  • Upfront property taxes
No private mortgage insurance (PMI) is required. This is because it's generally only needed on conventional home loans when your down payment is under 20%.

In addition, the intangible tax fee is waived for credit union members.
