5-10 Year Rental and Investment Property Loans

Private Money Financing to Build Your Investment Portfolio

First Capital Trust Deeds originates 5-year private money rental and investment property loans with rates starting at 5.50% and up to 9.99% interest-only.  The program pricing falls in between conventional financing such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in the 4.00% to 5.00% range and traditional asset-based hard money loans priced between 10.00% to 13.00%.  

These loans can be an excellent fit for the self-employed real estate investor who actively flips houses inside an LLC while also holding a growing rental property portfolio inside that same LLC or in a separate LLC, trust, or corporation.  Most of the time, investors with this legal and financial structure, with all their tax deductions from mortgage interest, property taxes, and depreciation, have difficulty obtaining conventional investment property financing unless they have a well established depository relationship with a community bank or credit union.

Another reason real estate investors seek out private money financing for their property portfolio is that they have exceeded the conventional loan limit for maximum amount of properties financed.  Currently, Fannie Mae limits the amount of financed properties to ten, which includes a borrower’s primary residence. Freddie Mac allows a total of six properties financed – the primary residence plus five investment properties.  

We’ve worked with several real estate investors who started buying foreclosures and short sales at the bottom of the market in 2009, amassing a substantial property portfolio of 20-60 properties.  These investors maxed out their conventional loan limits years ago and have been using the much easier to qualify for 5 and 10-year private money investment property loan programs offered through First Capital Trust Deeds.
