Many Real Estate Investors prefer rehab loan financing programs with low down payments. This allows them to qualify without having to invest large sums of money whether they have it or not. We offer are many programs available with down payment as low as 10% of the purchase price. The problem for lenders is a low down payment rehab loan is a much higher risk. That is why in order to reduce that risk private lenders have underwriting guidelines that are more restrictive when compared with programs requiring a larger cash investment.

The loan will fund 90% of the purchase price and up to 100% of the rehab costs. The funding of the rehab costs is limited. The total loan can not exceed 75% of the after rehab value. If the after rehab value is $200,000 then the maximum the loan could be is $150,000 (75% of $200,000 is $150,000). If the purchase price is $100,000 the down payment is $10,000 (10% of $100,000 is $10,000). The the maximum available for rehab is $60,000 ($150,000 maximum loan minus $90,000 for the purchase equal $60,000 available for rehab).
