Mortgage Rates and Rental Products

Most Lenders will offer their best rates. Also, if you have good credit, a solid income, with 20% or more to put down, you will qualify for a 35 year amortization mortgage.

Net Worth

The minimum requirement for net worth will vary depending on the lending institution. Some institutions will offer a 1.10% debt coverage ratio, and others lenders will rely on a rental off set for qualifying purposes. The debt coverage ratio of 1.10% is calculated by the Net Operating Income divided by the Debt Service.

When a Rental off set is used by lender it refers to using upwards of 70% of the rental income and off-setting it against the P.I.T. (Principal, Interest, and Taxes). Only the shortfall gets included into the debt ratio, while a rental surplus gets added back to the client's income. For instance, let's assume the rental property has a rental income of $1800 and the P.I.T. is $1324. We calculate 70% of the $1800 income, totaling $1280. The $1280 is deducted from the P.I.T. of $1324. The remaining $44 is considered a shortfall and will be added to the Debt Ratio.
