Below is a question raised by a prospective buyer, owner or seller of Florida property and the advice we were able to give:
I am an American citizen living and working abroad. I am interested in investing in a short term rental property near the Orlando theme parks. If I put 30-35% cash as a down payment, would it be possible to get a mortgage for the remainder?
Short term rental financing is very different than in previous years and, right now, very volatile – progams available today are gone tomorrow. So please understand that any advice is subject to rapid change (and these days, subject to your own circumstances – income level, assets and liabilities, in some cases even the type and location of property you’re buying).
Having said all of that, your target of a 65% to 70% loan should be feasible.
If you need any further information, please just e-mail me.
