What Is an Investment Property?

An investment property is a piece of real estate purchased for the purpose of generating income or securing capital gains. These properties fall under the categories of residential, commercial, and mixed-use. Mortgages for each type of real estate come with their own terms, and down payments for commercial mortgages may be higher.

Many individuals are drawn to income properties for a variety of reasons. For one, they offer a lower-risk alternative to investments to stock market equity. What’s more, with the help of tenants, a mortgage can essentially pay itself.

If you have any questions about down payments or rental property mortgage rates, we invite you to contact our team at your convenience. Our brokerage firm is always looking to help another borrower enter the rewarding world of real estate. Call us today.

Can I Get a Mortgage for an Investment Property?

For most investors, the biggest challenge to procuring an income property is securing a mortgage. While there are mortgages available for the sole purpose of financing investment properties, they are different from conventional homeowner’s mortgages.

For example, investment property mortgages for residential properties that are not owner-occupied may be underwritten differently than a property occupied by the owner. Properties with more than 5 units may also only qualify for commercial financing.

How Much are Down Payments for Income Property Mortgages?

Down payments for investment mortgages are typically higher than first-time homebuyers’ mortgages. For units of a certain size, lenders typically ask clients to put 20% down on a property. If you intend to occupy one of the units in your property, your down payment has the potential to be as low as 5%.

When you make a down payment of less than 20% on your mortgage, you will be required to purchase mortgage default insurance (also known as CMHC insurance).

Are Mortgage Rates Higher for Investment Properties?

Like most mortgages, your interest rate is determined by your credit score and the diligence of your broker. With us as your intermediaries, you will secure the best interest rate available to you.
