This client is an experienced investor in the on-fire Delray Beach, Florida real estate market. He currently has more than a half dozen rental properties in the booming beach town that sits about halfway between West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale. 

The client came to i Fund Cities to fund a property in Delray Beach that he intended to use as a short-term rental. 

Although some lenders do loan on short-term rentals, the property type is considered more of a risk, and so lender loan criteria tends to be more stringent than a long-term single-family rental loan. 

In this case, the client was getting resistance from other lenders because the home had the furniture included in the deal. He needed a lender who would loan on a home that was a turnkey short-term rental. 

i Fund Cities offered the borrower 80% loan to-value on the appraised value of the property. 

Key Loan Benefit to Borrower: 

The client acquired a new investment property that will cash flow up to $6,000 a month in short-term rentals. 

Customer Feedback:  

Says Andrew, “This client told me he was ecstatic to get 80% leverage on his property with no lease (since he was doing short-term rentals) and he was very happy that we closed without changing the originally quoted terms!”

The ability of iFC to be flexible in this situation not only gave the investor enough capital to finish the three projects he was involved in but, since he had purchased the majority of his assets in 100% cash, the extra liquidity provided him enough capital to purchase a fourth project!  

The investor saw the value of using debt in a smart way, so much so that he decided to scale his business by using his cash for the 15% of equity needed in deals, and IFC for the remaining 85% in debt.
