Almost all loans over 80% of loan monthly payments include principal, interest, and a pro rata buildup for an escrow of taxes and hazard insurance. If the property is a residence of the borrower (and therefore qualifying for a better term mortgage), there must be a certification that the property will indeed be the borrower’s home. Most lenders will limit the years and offer more restrictive interest rates and payback terms on investment property.
At the time of the loan, no secondary or junior loans can be made or placed on the property. This is standard for all primary lenders, but is more policy than regulation. Creative investors know that you can have secondary financing that makes the deal work, if the secondary loan is on another property. Land leases are a common form of secondary loan that is actually on the same property which secures the primary loan, provided that the loan is either subordinated, or of such a long term that the lenders is comfortable with the loan situation.
Depending on the market, many lenders seek to shorten the payback terms of loans. It is not uncommon for these repayment terms to be five or ten years.
Interest rates are not regulated except by state law, which establishes the maximum rate that can be charged. Interest charged is generally somewhat competitive, and may not appear to vary much.
The actual cost per $1,000 loaned is the best way to determine the overall cost of the total term of the loan.
