With rental property, you can make money two ways – on the monthly cash flow (if it’s positive) and on the increase in equity (if the property goes up in value).


With such appealing possibilities for financial gain, it’s a wonder that everyone doesn’t own a few non-owner occupied properties…until you understand the landscape of finding financing for rentals!


Challenges Of Getting A Loan For A Rental Property

Traditional lenders and mortgage companies are far more cautious about financing rental properties than owner-occupied properties for a variety of reasons.


Higher Risk Of Default: Lenders perceive rental properties as having a higher risk of default compared to primary residences. The rationale is that in times of financial hardship, borrowers are more likely to prioritize the mortgage on their primary residence over a rental property. The increased risk means that lenders apply stricter lending criteria and/or charge higher interest rates to mitigate potential losses.


Income Stability: Rental income can be variable. Vacancies, tenant turnover, and unexpected maintenance issues can affect the amount of income that a rental property is able to generate. Lenders might be concerned about your ability to cover mortgage payments during periods when the property isn’t generating sufficient rental income, especially if you don’t have other stable income sources to use to cover any shortfalls.


Loan Qualification Criteria: Mortgage companies often have more stringent qualification criteria for borrowers looking to finance or refinance rental properties. This can include higher credit score requirements, stronger financial reserves, and a proven track record of successfully managing rental properties. Lenders will closely examine your debt-to-income ratio (DTI) and may also require the property itself meet specific income-generating criteria.


Property Condition And Appraisal Concerns: Rental properties are often in worse condition than those purchased as primary residences, especially if you’re planning to renovate the property to increase its value. Lenders might have specific guidelines regarding the condition of the property and its valuation, which can make it more challenging to finance properties in need of significant repair or renovation.


Regulatory And Institutional Policy Restrictions: Lenders might also face regulatory or institutional policy restrictions that limit their ability to finance rental properties. These can include limitations on the number of mortgages one borrower can have, as well as additional scrutiny from regulatory agencies on loans for investment properties.
