equity lines of credit

Posted by: kellybs May 1 2004, 09:43 PM
I would like to take an equity line of credit on a property in NY. It's value is 500K and the remaining mort is 141K. The present income from is $2400 a month and the mortgage is $1349.00 a month. This leaves $1051.00 monthly. Since this is an income producing property, will I have trouble getting an equity line on it?? I'd like to get 75K
thanks for your consideration

You will not have trouble getting it as long as you can answer the following questions to the lenders satisfaction {these would be my questions, the lender can probably ask for other ones I have not thought of}

1- What do you need the money for?
2- Why do you need it to be in the form of a line of credit?
3- How are you going to repay this? The lender is going to want to see an amortization.
4- Any reason why this could not be treated as a refinance so that the new lender gets a first mortgage?
5- You say present income is $2,400, but that is gross right? What is the Net Operating Income?
6- How is your credit?

Lines of credit in income producing property are not that common. But I have seen a couple. You need to talk to a lender in your area and find out if they are willing to structure a loan that way.

Hope this helps.
