Ready to purchase your next vacation rental?

Our industry leading STR financing is strategically designed for vacation rentals. We require no personal income to get you qualified; meaning, we do not collect W-2’s, tax returns or paystubs. Instead, we focus on the subject property and its cashflow. If the short-term rent potential of the property is equal to, or greater than, the proposed mortgage payment—we can qualify the loan. We do it all while offering great rates, a seamless process, and best of all NO LENDER FEES! 

short-term rentals

Short-term rentals, also referred to as vacation rentals, are furnished residences – a home, an apartment or a condo – that are rented to guests who are interested in short-term stays; anywhere between one night to one month. STR’s provide ample advantages to real estate investors, such as earning potential and flexibility. Owners can decide precisely when their property will be made available to guests, whether on a nightly, weekly or monthly basis.

Many investors purchase STR properties for the sole purpose of renting them out on sites such as Airbnb and Vrbo. Airbnb business has surged in popularity and has fostered a competitive and profitable business atmosphere. A recent study of eight major US cities discovered that, on average, STR’s ask for twice the rent than that of long-term rentals. Through STR’s, investors can make upwards of 20% more than they would on a property that is rent controlled.

STR’s are lucrative assets and are steadily gaining momentum as key stakes in our client’s investment portfolios. The vacation rental industry is a highly affordable option for short-term stays and since STR’s are generally cheaper than hotels, guests are drawn to vacation rentals as an alternative, primarily for the increased space and residential conveniences – this translates to steady occupancy rates for investors. STR owners are also in a position to charge higher rates, in comparison to LTR owners, particularly around peak periods such as holidays and popular travel times which cause spikes in occupancy rates and rental income.
