Education

The heart of what we do is teach people how to skillfully navigate real estate investment and lending. Beyond the experience and the deep-rooted understanding that we have for mortgage lending and structuring loans to benefit investors for a lifetime, we also pilot first-time investors through the waters of their first property.

If you are new to real estate investment, please join our mastermind group for tips and support and get to know members of the
Ridge Lending Group Community. 

  1. Differences on Refinance on Investment Properties. There are three types: delayed cash-out; standard cash-out; rate and term
  2. Rate and Term: Replacing a loan for a new one, whether to secure better rates, get out of a hard money loan or change loan term
  3. Delayed Cash-Out Refi: Requires no seasoning when needing to use the ARV to determine the loan amount based on the loan-to-maximum value
  4. Standard Cash-Out Refi: Has a seasoning requirement of 6 months of title ownership by the individual before they’re able to use that ARV
  1. In this video, Caeli from Ridge Lending Group discusses the needs and restrictions of conventional financing through a single-member LLC. This video also explains the Due On Sale Clause and Quit Claim Deeds, sometimes known as Warranty Deeds.
  1. Benefits of working with RLG: Nationwide lender with a combined total of over 60 years’ experience and in-depth knowledge of non-owner-occupied lending. Remarkably diverse line of products for investors.
  2. RLG is not going to be a good fit for the individual who is purchasing commercial properties under $400k or residential properties under $80k. Mobile homes and storage units are not their wheelhouse.
  1. In this video, Caeli Ridge explains how ARV, or After Repair Value, is a figure used in the BRRR Method (Buy, Rehab, Rent, Refi) for real estate investment.
  2. Loan granted based on the loan-to-value derived from the ARV — 75% of the ARV (for example, if you purchase a $50k house and work out another $25k for renovation, and the ARV is $100k, you will secure $75k minus closing costs)
  1. Caeli Ridge explains the three different types of Cash-Out Refinance available for residential properties. Rate and Term Cash Out Refi, where you basically swap out one loan for another. Delayed Cash Out Refi, which is faster but has certain limitations. And Standard Cash Out Refi, which is slower but more flexible.
  1. Caeli Ridge explains what kind of credit qualifications are required for your commercial and real estate investment projects, such as for Rapid Acquisitions. Caeli also gives some tips on improving your credit score for more favorable investment property loans and terms.
  2. There are 10 conventional loan spots for qualified borrowers. 1-6: There are no fast and hard rules. Credit score isn’t as important for loan approval as debt-to-income ratio and assets. 7-10: You must maintain a minimum middle credit score of 720 or greater to qualify, no exceptions.
  3. Optimization trick: For Rapid Acquisitions, running credit score before all the mortgage debt starts hitting will buy the borrower time to purchase more properties since the report is valid for 120 days.
