3 Crucial Steps to Shop for the Best Apartment Loan

Written by jordan on . Posted in Blog

Here is an article from one our affiliates on how to get the best loan:

by Henry Young

Make sure you have your Rent Roll updated and Income/Expense Statements for the last 2 years on the building available. Every lender is going to need this information along with your tax returns so you can get a head start by having this paperwork ready.

2. DON’T FOCUS JUST ON THE RATE: Besides getting a quote on the rate, make sure you find out and understand the other terms of the loan: type of prepay, lender fees, good faith deposits, loan maturity, amortization term, is the loan assumable and what happens after the fixed period? Remember this: A lower rate doesn’t always mean it’s the best loan for you!

3. ESTABLISH A RELATIONSHIP WITH A LENDER: Choose a lender that is going to take the time to review and understand your entire real estate portfolio and develop a financing plan not just for this one transaction, but for future needs as well.
