The EasyRent rental loans are classified as DSCR Loans, which are mortgage loans secured by residential real estate turnkey properties strictly used for a business purpose and underwritten primarily based on the property.

We offer rental loans in every state except North Dakota, South Dakota and Nevada.

The DSCR Ratio, not to be confused with “DSCR Loans,” is the “Debt Service Coverage Ratio.” It measures the annual cash flow of a rental property in a ratio of rental income divided by expenses.

We calculate DSCR by taking monthly Projected Income (Rent or STR income) divided by your monthly payment – PITIA (principal, interest, tax escrow, insurance escrow and any HOA dues). No expenses besides taxes, insurance or HOA dues are considered in underwriting or qualification.

A cash-out refinance in real estate finance is a refinance mortgage loan (either on a rental property owned free and clear with no debt or in conjunction with paying off the old mortgage) in which the borrower receives greater than $2,000 in proceeds. Proceeds are generally determined by subtracting the payoff loan amount, closing costs and any escrows from the new loan amount.

A rate-term refinance in real estate finance is a refinance rental loan in which the borrower receives less than $2,000 in proceeds at closing or has to bring additional funds to cover payoffs, closing costs and escrows.

Easy Street Capital does not utilize DTI for qualification for Minnesota rental loans! There is no income verification or tax return requirement for qualification for a rental loan with Easy Street Capital.

Yes – EasyRent loans are first-time investor friendly, and we do not have any restrictions or limits on Minnesota loan offerings to first time investors. We are dedicated to helping real estate investors start the journey to financial freedom and love to help people get started!

Yes, generally most of our rental loans have thirty year terms and have an interest rate fixed for the entire term. However, we do offer some borrowers Hybrid ARM (adjustable rate mortgage) options, in which the interest rate is fixed for the first five years of the term, and then floats based on several loan provisions for the final 25 years of the term.

We offer a “Partial” interest-only option where only interest payments (no principal paydown) is required for the first 10 years of the term, and then the loan amortizes on a 20-year schedule for the final 20 years of the term.

The DSCR is calculated on the interest-only payment that will be in effect for the first 10 years of the loan term.

Not necessarily, most rental loans from Easy Street Capital have fees associated with paying off the rental property loan early, typically in a “5/4/3/2/1” structure. This means that if prepaid in the first year, there will be a prepayment penalty of 5% of the remaining loan balance, with a 4% fee if prepaid in the second year, 3% if prepaid in the third year, etc. There would be no fees associated with prepaying the rental loan with this structure for the last 25 years of the loan. However, EasyRent is a flexible loan program that can be tailored to our borrower’s strategy and needs. Our rental loans can have reduced prepayment penalties, such as a “3/2/1” or “2/1” structure, no prepayment penalties at all or even higher prepayment penalty structure, such as a 5% fee if prepaid during the first five years of the term. Generally, the higher and longer the prepayment penalty is in effect, the lower interest rate you will have.

Additionally, if planned to utilize the property as a short term or vacation rental, we can utilize projects from industry data providers to qualify the loan.
