If you are among the companies and individuals who invest in properties for profit, you may need to take out loans to finance your investments. The financing designed for this purpose is available in the form of investment property loans.

The investment property serves as collateral in an investment property loan. The lender finances the rehabilitation, the purchase or both. The lending institution bases the amount of the loan on their loan-to-value requirements – usually 60% to 80% of the property’s estimated after-repair value.
