Navigating the Modern Mortgage Landscape: A Closer Look at Debt Service Coverage Ratio (DSCR) Loans

Wednesday, September 20, 2023

Real estate investing isn't just about finding the right property. It's about financing it in a way that makes the most sense for you. That's where Debt Service Coverage Ratio Loans, or DSCRs, come into the picture. Originally a big deal in commercial real estate, these loans are now catching the attention of residential investors. Why? Let's explore.

What's the Deal with DSCRs?

In simple terms, DSCRs measure whether the cash flow from a property is enough to cover its debt obligations. Instead of focusing solely on the borrower's personal income like traditional loans, DSCRs consider how well the property itself is doing. Got a property that's raking in rental income but your personal finances are a bit of a rollercoaster? DSCRs could be your best bet.

Why Investors are Buzzing About DSCRs

1. Flexibility is Key: Investors with fluctuating personal incomes can still qualify, thanks to the loan's focus on property cash flow.

2. Growing? They Grow with You: If you're slowly building a real estate empire, DSCRs are designed to scale with your ambitions.

3. A Bigger Emphasis on Property Potential: It's about how well the property can perform, rather than how hefty your personal bank account is.

4. More Doors Open: DSCRs aren't just limited to commercial spots. Think multi-family units, mixed-use places, and now, even residential homes.

Going Beyond: Prosperity's Take on DSCRs

We've taken DSCRs and given them a bit of a twist to fit today's changing rental scene. Think of properties on Airbnb or VRBO. With short-term rentals becoming a big player, we've designed our DSCR program to take advantage of that flexibility.

Quick Highlights:

  • Got an Airbnb or VRBO property? We've got you.
  • Enhanced guidance on assessing short-term rental incomes.
  • Get up to 80% LTV for buying or rate/term refinancing. Need cash-out refinancing? You're looking at up to 75% LTV.
  • Yep, non-warrantable condos are in the mix too.
