Qualify for a loan based on your property’s cash flow, not your income.  Securing a DSCR loan can help you expand your investment portfolio easier than ever before.

What Is a Debt Service Coverage Loan?

A DSCR loan is a type of Non-Qualified Mortgage loan for real estate investors. Lenders use a DSCR to help qualify real estate investors for a loan because it can easily determine the borrower’s ability to repay without verifying income.

How is the DSCR Calculated?

DSCR is computed by taking the gross market rent (GMR) as established by the appraiser and dividing that figure by the total mortgage payment (TMP) which includes the principal, interest, taxes and insurance.  So, the DSCR would be GMR divided by TMP which must equal a DSCR of .75 or higher to qualify.  The Loan Tree uses DSCR to analyze how much of a loan can be supported by the income coming from the property as well as to determine how much income coverage there will be at a specific loan amount.

How Does a DSCR Loan Work?

Because real estate investors write off expenses on their properties, some may not qualify for a conventional loan. The debt service coverage ratio loan allows these individuals to qualify more easily because they don’t require proof of income via tax returns or pay stubs that investors either don’t have or that don’t represent their true income due to write-offs and business deductions.
