More Options & Potential for your Fix & Flip Loan
Opportunity to use a ‘Down Payment Reserve’
MMTC offers an innovative way to assist fix-and-hold real estate investors with their desire to add to their investment portfolio. This could mean obtaining a property with little to no cash out-of-pocket after the refinance is obtained. Typically, MMTC will require 10% – 20% of the purchase price plus repair amount at the time of the property purchase and loan closing.
If desired by the Borrower, MMTC will hold the down payment in a “Down Payment Reserve Account” and will make the loan for 100% of the costs of the project. As soon as the loan is paid off, the Down Payment Reserve Account is refunded to the borrower.
What’s the benefit?
When a borrower goes to refinance the loan, it will be possible to refinance for an amount equal to 100% of the costs without seeking a “cash out” refinance to recover their equity.
Use of Cross-Collateralization for Down Payments
If the borrower already owns another real estate property ‘free-and-clear’ (and not a primary residence,) within an area where MMTC lends, there may be enough equity (at a proper loan-to-value percentage) in that property to use it as the down payment for the new fix-and-flip property being purchased.
What’s the benefit?
The Borrower may not need to put any cash into their transaction. The equity from their other property can serve as the down payment for our Fix & Flip loan.
Many of our clients have successfully used cross-collateralization. Ask a loan specialist for details.
Additional Need-to-Know Items
The down payment reserve account is fully documented for the Borrower via a security agreement and is shown as a line item on the HUD closing settlement statement.
In the above example, the loan amount would be for $300,000, and the “Down Payment Reserve Account” would be $30,000. This amount would be held by MMTC until the loan is paid in full, and then refunded to the borrower. It is highly recommended that someone wanting to use a Down Payment Reserve should be preapproved for it before they have a contract on a property. This should be done with not only MMTC but with the conventional takeout lender as well. (MMTC can provide recommendations to take-out lenders if needed.)
