Need funding for your real estate investing?  Unless you are independently wealthy, the answer is YES!
At our next Savvy Women Investors Meeting (SWIM), Brent McGraw of MECU will show you what his investor-friendly credit union has to offer you.  MECU is eager to lend to both rehabbers and buy-and-hold investors.  Brent’s presentation will cover:
  • How to approach a lender for financing
  • What a lender likes to see and doesn’t like to see from an applicant (how to impress a lender with your organizational skills)
  • Loan to cost vs. loan to value
  • How to properly structure a construction draw schedule
  • Contractors: bonded vs. non-bonded
  • One-time closing products vs. hard money and refinancing once seasoned
  • Reserves vs. liquidity: what lenders look for
  • Calculating subject property cash flow coverage and global cash flow coverage
  • Terms and conditions to close
Your meeting moderator Janet Tonkins, “The Baltimore Real Estate Diva,” has just inked a half-million-dollar lending deal with MECU.  Come SWIM with Janet and discover what MECU can do for you.
