#1 Investment Property Down Payment Solution

May 20, 2022

Duplex - investment property

Whether you’re looking to buy a second home, vacation home, or investment property, coming up with a down payment can be challenging. A cash-out refinance could be the perfect answer.

How Much Cash Can You Get?

The amount of money you can receive for an investment property down payment depends on your

  1. Home’s value
  2. Mortgage balance

The loan to value (LTV) for a cash-out refi is typically 80%. Here’s an example:

  • $500,000 home value
  • $200,000 current mortgage
  • $400,000 max loan amount


So, with a new mortgage of $400,000, you would pay off your current loan. And then, you’d have $200,000 (minus loan fees) for another property.


What if I Don’t Have a Mortgage on My Home?

If your home is paid off, and you don’t have a mortgage, you’d be able to get $400,000 in the above scenario.

The advantage of getting a mortgage on your primary residence and paying cash for the other property is that you’ll get a lower interest rate. That’s because interest rates for primary residences are lower than rates for investment properties.


The Rental Market is HOT!

Almost anywhere you look, the market is very active. And rental rates are increasing.

Whether it’s a single-family home, duplex, triplex, or fourplex, buying a property is an excellent investment. It’s a savvy way to take advantage of your equity.
