I’m in NY. Don’t have an LLC but am a strong advocate. I’ve worked extensively with investors in NY as a jr. investor who do operate our deals through LLC and other formalized, legal entities. I’ve talked with dozens of lenders an your lender was being honest. Most lenders in this market do not have programs or $$ groups that work well with an LLC unless there is a personal guarantee attached. But, the good news is there are just as many who will. Just keep calling lenders until you find one with a program that will work. Good Luck.
