Did you know that back in the Depression, Roosevelt made it possible for increased numbers of people to own homes? At the time, as you can imagine, there were a tremendous number of foreclosures, and not many people could afford to own their own homes.

The Home Owners Mortgage Act was passed, and it makes it more affordable to own a home. The loans were fixed for a much longer period of time than before – 20 to 25 years and, later, 30 years... Read More

Apartment financing is definitely challenging for the average investor in today’s economy. Prior to the recession of 2008, apartment financing approvals were made first to the solidness of the apartment complex’s income, second to the quality of the property, and third to the borrower.

After the recession, the borrower became the most important of the three major qualifications. Today this is still the case. This is because so many apartment owners became financially insolvent as a result of the recession. Many had a business that was running at a... Read More

The lowest apartment loan rates (commercial apartment complexes of five units or more) are without doubt HUD/FHA loan programs for refinancing and purchasing apartment buildings. This program is known as the HUD 223f. The rate as of the date of this blog article is 2.75% for a 30–35 year fixed with a 30–35 year amortization. HUD will also mandate a monthly mortgage insurance premium, so that will add .60% on to the rate. Therefore the all-in rate today is 3.35%.

Now when you consider that bank rates are averaging today between 3.75% and 4.75% on a... Read More
