Fixed-and-flip loans typically have a lower ratio of loan-to-value

Fix-and-flip loans are often seen as risky by lenders. Lenders are less conservative about the loan-to-value (LTV) they provide borrowers to hedge against this risk. LTV is the ratio of the loan amount that a lender offers to the appraised property value they intend to buy with the loan.

The LTV for a conventional mortgage is typically around 80%. The borrower must provide the 20% remaining to buy the property in the form of a down payment. A fix-and-flip loan may have a maximum LTV ratio of 65-70%. The borrower will need to contribute 30-35% of the property’s value as a downpayment.

You are eligible for a fix-and-flip loan with no down payment.

Because these loans have lower LTV lenders, it is more difficult to obtain a fix-and-flip loan without money down. You can still get the extra cash to pay the down payment by offering additional collateral (other than fix-and-flip properties) as a security interest. It would help if you had collateral that is equal to or greater in value than the amount of the down payment money. Examples include:

  • Another real estate, such as your primary residence
  • Investment accounts
  • Vehicles
  • Any other item that is of high value

A borrower can find someone who will guarantee the loan. A guarantor agrees to pay the borrower’s debt in the event of default on the fix and flip loan.
