Keeping it all realistic
One thing to keep in mind while taking investment loans for buying apartments is that banks do not fund any property that does not have property insurance. And to be eligible for property insurance, there are some regulations that the property must usually be a minimum of fifty square meters. Hence, most student apartments, studio apartments and hotel conversions might become ineligible for a property loan or even an investment loan. Another important factor in deciding whether an apartment can be funded or not is the number of apartments in a development that are insured. A bank might put a limit of twenty five percent or a fixed number on the total units that can be funded in a development.
In some circumstances the bank might ask for additional security if the bank is not convinced about the quality of the investment. Hence, a broker or an agent can help you overcome these issues by providing appropriate solutions about the same.
It’s a complex scenario for apartment lending however if it’s somewhere you really desire or a great looking investment that stacks up it could be worth pursuing.
