Description

Knowing how to get a mortgage is a crucial step in your journey to buy a rental property. Of course, the money side of things can be intimidating. How do you find a lender? What type of mortgage do you need? When should you get a preapproval? You likely have all sorts of questions…and we have answers!

Welcome back to the Real Estate Rookie podcast! In part two of our fundamentals of funding miniseries, certified mortgage advisor Jeff Welgan joins the show to share his lending expertise and equip rookies with some golden financing tips. In this episode, he debunks some of the most common misconceptions about real estate lending and shares some of the biggest red flags to watch out for in a lender.

But that’s not all. Jeff will show you an EASY way to build an entire portfolio with very little money—a lesser-known strategy that allows you to use down payment assistance programs and first-time home buyer loans to your advantage. Jeff also talks about the biggest differences between conventional and non-conventional loans, what to expect during the underwriting process, and where he expects mortgage rates to be in the not-so-distant future!
