Looking for a cash-out refinance for investment property...

I just purchased 2 porperties in CASH and made several upgrades.  Is it possilbe to get a loan / refinance now with a cash-out (to purchase another property) for what the house appraises for...70% loan to value.  I have only owned the houses 4 months.  If so I will be interested in doing this in the next month...

You might also keep in mind some investors have increased their reserve requirements for investment property (for each property).

Hello Darney,
You will have to wait for 6 months until you are eligible for cashout.  You will be paying a premium because of the Property Type and Cashout, so try considering less cashout = lower Loan to Value.

Should be noted that the new guidelines for 5-10 property financed can only be used for purchase....not for cash out loans.

So if a cash investor already has 4 property financed, Fannie still won't let them get their money back out, but they will let them buy with a purchase loan.

Carl - somehow I ended up on your email blast with the Fannie Bulletin for investors!!

most investors now require that you wait 6-12 months before you can cash out on an investment property.

For Conventional you must own for 6 months, then you are OK.  Cannot have more than 4 properties financed at any given time. 

Only other options before 6 month would be less attractive terms.
