Portfolio Mortgage Lender Successfully investing in rental properties requires more than just knowing which ones to pick.

One of the most important aspects for long-term success is simply knowing how to find the financing you need to make your acquisitions. Rental Home Financing wants to be your lending partner!

If you’re focused on acquiring single-family homes, your best option is almost always going to be nontraditional lenders offering portfolio mortgage financing.

What Is Portfolio Mortgage Financing?

A portfolio mortgage lender, like Rental Home Financing, uses its own cash and often credit facilities to leverage money for the purpose of originating, underwriting, and closing several types of products related to the purchasing of residential properties.

Best Investor Financing Tips for Increasing Your Portfolios ValueOne of the most important aspects of success in real estate investing is understanding how to properly finance your portfolio.

Countless investors skip this step, though.

They may eventually build what appears to be an impressive portfolio of a dozen or more properties, but because they didn’t finance it correctly, it hardly provides a full-time income.

So, while success requires mastering a number of different areas, creating a robust portfolio of rental properties will be much easier if you understand how to make the most of investor financing.

Benefits of Using a Blanket Loan to Improve Your Real Estate Portfolio Rental Home FinancingNothing can compare to a large portfolio of rental properties in terms of securing your financial future.

The benefits of owning just a single rental property are significant. Owning multiple homes means greater cashflow, equity, opportunities for diversity, and, of course, a large payout if/when you decide to sell.

Of course, before you can enjoy all of these attractive benefits, you need to actually finance such a portfolio. For the first couple of properties, your local lender may be an option.

However, to build out the kind of portfolio that becomes your main – or even sole – source of income, you can’t do better than a blanket loan.

Fourplex FinancingCurrently, about 40% of the U.S. population are part of the rental market.

That’s a massive amount, which is why it’s such a great time to increase your rental property portfolio.

Aside from all the renters out there, the price of houses is also creeping up. Purchase properties now while costs are still relatively low, and you’ll be in a great position when high prices increase the number of renters out there further.

While there are countless types of properties to choose from, the more units you can fit onto a single mortgage, the better. That’s why you should consider fourplexes.

With the right fourplex financing, that acquisition could become your most valuable to date.

Duplex FinancingLooking to add to your real estate investment portfolio?

While there are countless options, it’s worth considering how a duplex could augment your earnings as well as the best way to go about securing Duplex financing.

What Is Considered a Duplex?

As rental property investors, it’ important to understand the formal definitions of various property types.

Fortunately, duplexes are a relatively easy property type to nail down. It’s any residential building that entails two separate living units with a shared wall.

Keep in mind that this is not the same thing as a twin home, which is also two living units with a shared wall, but the units are owned separately. Duplexes only have one owner.

As the old saying goes, real estate is all about, “location, location, location.”

LLC for Single Family Rental Properties

Single family rental properties offer a number of advantages to the owner.

Generally, the time between when you acquire one and when you can begin renting is minimal – meaning cashflow begins ASAP.

Nonetheless, many provide great returns with low overhead and the promise of tremendous resale values.

However, the means by which you own one of these properties will have just as big an impact on your portfolio as the actual home itself.

That’s why most investors choose to use an LLC for single family rental properties.
