The government directives regarding Fannie Mae or qualified mortgages is seen as bad news by investors. They are scared because this could well mean scarcity of QM loans in the market. But here’s the solution: non qualifying mortgage loans! These are the loans that are going to tide you over and secure those retirement riches for you. Watch as I explain how.
Non-Qualifying Mortgage – your secret for success.
As I always say, it is the loan duration and the amount of down payment (should be the lowest possible for most circumstances) that are the key to a successful investment and rich returns. This is more important than whether it’s a non-qualifying mortgage or a Fannie Mae loan.
Right now, the idea of non-QM loans may seem intimidating, but they are a smart choice for investors who cannot get QM loans, and in the long run, they aren't that much different. Right now rates are low and this is what makes now the perfect time for you to pick this option instead of doing nothing, as I explain in this video.
Initial negative cash flows? No problem!
And yes, even if you're looking at negative cash flows to begin with, I would still tell you to go ahead and invest in property and buy as many homes as you possibly can (assuming you can sustain the slight negatives). Whatever your negative cash flow is right now, in the future it may be about the same as one dinner in a fancy restaurant (after, say, fifteen years or so)! While your PI payments will remain fixed, the rising cost of living will ensure that your rent amounts keep increasing.
Check out this short episode where I speak about non-qualifying mortgages as well as Fannie Mae loans and the pros and cons of each. Also find out more about my early experiences with real estate investments in the Vegas areas back in the 80s. You probably will not believe the sort of prices at which I acquired homes at the time -- why I was able to buy so many and why I would buy a hundred more if I could go back in time.
