Our Loan Process

Are you interested in creating a monthly cash flow or diversifying your assets with a rental house or multi-family unit?

Many markets that were over-priced during the housing bubble have over-corrected and property can now be purchased far below the cost to rebuild – which can mean substantial cash flow.

Getting a loan to purchase rental property can be tricky. Work with a company that has the experience necessary to help navigate you through any hoops that arise.

Considerations for a Real Estate Investor Loan

Things to consider when purchasing rental property and using a real estate investor loan:

  • Fannie Mae currently allows each investor to carry 10 loans at once.
  • Credit Requirements
  • Cash Reserves
  • Down Payment


  1. Fannie Mae currently allows each investor to carry 10 loans at once If you are working with TILA Mortgage, we can help you strategize both a long-term and short-term plan to ensure that you are taking advantage of your 10-loan limit.
  2. Credit Requirements A little known fact is that there are two different credit-qualification guidelines for obtaining investor loans. The first is for properties 1-4 and the second is for properties 5-10, listed below:
    • Loans 1-4: requires a credit score of at least 620
    • Loans 5-10: requires a credit score of at least 720
  3. Cash Reserves In addition to the down payment, lenders will typically require you to have six months of cash reserves available per property. This means that if you own a primary residence and you are going to acquire a rental, the lender will require you to have six months of mortgage payments (cash in the bank) for both your primary residence and your future rental.
  4. Down Payment Just like there are two sets of guidelines for your credit, there are also multiple sets of guidelines regarding down payments, listed below:
    • Loans 1-4 (Single family): 20% down
    • Loans 5-10 (single family): 25% down
    • Loans 1-10 (multi-family): 25% down (side note: many lenders will require you to pay 30% after loan 4)

At TILA Mortgage, we have a good understanding of the loans available for the rental property investor and can help you quickly navigate through your qualifications.
