What is a Renovate to Rent Loan?
The key difference between a renovate to rent loan and a fix and flip loan is the investor’s exit strategy. Rather than selling the renovated property upon project completion, the investor will retain the property as part of a rental portfolio. With a renovate to rent loan, investors can transition from a short-term hard money loan to a long-term mortgage that will allow you to keep your property as long as you want.
At any point before, during, or after the fix and flip process with ABL, investors can choose a rental exit strategy and ABL will get to work. Our connections with mortgage banks give us over a dozen loan options so we can personalize your refinance and find the program that works best for you. Regardless of how you financed your project, ABL will find a great long-term loan for you.
