Unlike most residential homes, an investment property is one that is not the owner’s primary residence and instead is used to generate profits. If it is primarily used for revenue, a property becomes considered an investment property.
Several types of properties fall into this category: residential rental properties, commercial properties, and properties purchased with the intention to renovate it and later flip it to make a profit.
Yes. In comparison to homes purchased as the primary residence, taking out a loan for an investment properties often comes with higher interest rates and a larger down payment. It can be difficult to receive a loan on an investment property, particularly in Scottsdale, so the borrower must be prepared to put down at least 20% of the home price as a down payment and be able to prove good credit scores.
Be able to make a sizable down payment. The more you can initially pay for a down payment, the better your interest rates will be over the course of the loan. In addition, the higher your credit score, the better interest rates you’ll receive long-term.
It is generally more difficult to qualify for a loan on investment property than it is for a primary residence in Scottsdale. Make sure you do your research and choose a property wisely before going through the process of applying for a loan.
It is also recommended to avoid investing in any property if you have any lingering debt — be it from remaining college loans or medical bills — or you can anticipate a large expense coming quickly. Lenders want to know that you have the funds to pay off the loan, and that you will continue to do so for the years on the loan.

Extremely pleased with the overall professionalism and experience of the loan process. I am now a raving fan of Sean, his team members and Home Point Financial. 2 Thumbs Up!!Mr. Romaguera
This process has been amazing. I was nervous because they switched to me after working with another agent and lenders don’t always take care of the new guys. You guys have been great though. I really appreciate it and I’m very impressed.Kara Gaut
Sean was always available to answer questions or concerns we had. Another “great help” was Alexa Johnson, loan assistant to Sean. This young lady was incredible in keeping us posted and moving the loan rapidly along. She was the most help of all. I would recommend these two to others. The greatest help was Alexa Johnson, in California. Alexa was the hub of the wheel and we cannot say enough about how helpful she was. This loan closed early, because in great part to Alexa. She kept things moving forward and got my concerns or questions answered quickly. This experience, by far, was the best, most convenient and quickest of all the times we’ve financed a home. I would highly recommend Home Point. Particularly, Sean Wohland.Hunt Family
This is about the sixth or seventh loan Sean has done for me personally. He is very professional and I completely trust his advice and expertise. Since I am a Realtor as well, I also highly recommend him to my clients. Sean and his team are great and I am completely satisfied with my experience!McElmell Family
