What is an Investment Property Loan?


An investment property, unlike most residential properties, is a property that is not your primary residence and has been purchased with intent to generate revenue, either through the future resale of the property, rental income or both.


An investment property can be a long-term project or an intentional short-term investment such as in the event of flipping, where real estate is purchased, remodeled or renovated, and sold at a profit.



Tips for Buying an Investment Property:


It is important to be patient and well-informed about the market value of the property you wish to purchase. Selecting real estate that is more likely to increase in value is the most important decision you will make, therefore, buying at the right price is crucial.


Before you purchase the home, have a professional building inspector perform an in-depth inspection of the property to find any potential problems as this may hinder your profit potential. Thereafter, it is recommended to do an in-depth inspection annually.


Investment properties usually accompany a higher interest rate. Be prepared to put down at least 20 percent of the property price as a down payment on the loan and ensure that your credit is in good standing.
