Become a landlord


The simplest strategy is to buy a condo units or several condo unit and build up residential portfolio. There has never been a better time to do that than now, when residential mortgage loans have record low interest. The rent levels, however, remain quite high, since while advancing money at low interest rates, the banks remain quite strict with the borrower’s approval process. In addition to condo units, investors can also consider some investor friendly coops and multifamily buildings. Please call us to discuss your condo purchase.

Financing options define real estate pricing in most markets, New York is certainly no exception. Townhouses with more than 4 units can only be financed with commercial loans at rates, which considerably exceed current interest rates on residential mortgage loans. Other considerations, such as DSCR (debt service coverage ratio) also restrict financing of multifamily units, increasing equity requirement and limiting the number of eligible buyers. Townhouses with 4 units or less can be financed with a regular mortgage loan at very attractive, low rates and make such purchase more accessible to many more buyers, especially live plus income owners. Such buyers want to use the part of the building as their residence and collect income from remaining units. Sometimes combining units to restore residential status of a townhouse is a great idea. Another option includes changing the building’s legal status to a condominium, even a small one, which would allow selling separate apartments in such building to individual owners. In such case, buyers of individual units will have access to regular mortgage financing and with lower per unit price, the number of potential buyers should be high.

New York has complex residential code and many regulations, which apply to various rental units in older buildings. In some cases, landlords can’t charge market rate rents from their long term and especially elderly tenants. Such apartments can be “deregulated”, i.e. restrictions on rent and use can be removed, under certain circumstances, especially when the benefit is used improperly. In some cases, it is possible to buy out privileged tenants. While such projects present considerable risks, these options also offer great upside potential. Please contact us to discuss various deregulation projects.
