sounds the same as my commercial lender gives me, except I don’t pay points. See if you can get him to drop them !

Being a newbie, I just wanted to run this by you for some feedback. Seller accepted my offer to purchased his 4 flat for $75,000 ( comps are 85-90,000). We plan on keeping min. 5 yrs will be non owner occupied. Owner is taking back 2nd of 20% with 5 yr ballon. Just spoke with a broker who said he has a commerical lender who can do this deal with owner taking back 2nd and using 5% my money. He then ballparked me on the terms; 3 yrs renewable at 8 1/2 to 9 % int., 2 points, $500 for appraisal,
and about $200 in closing cost but could be more.Does this sound ok, like not to use own money but cant find any lenders.

The first thing I would do is tell the broker to not go for a commercial loan. A 4 unit is considered a residential property and qualifies for residential loans. The appraisal will come down and terms will be better.

Sounds ok but still using you own money. Try lease optioning the building after you close. Ask for $10,000+ or - for an option consideration and you won’t have to worry about being a landlord! Just keep getting those check from the new tenant/buyer!
