ASK MIKE MONDAYS - Mike, you have motivated me to buy apartments. I want to be like Michael Becker… “What can you expect from your lender AFTER you close?” (Episode 5B of 5)
When you buy a single family house, AND AFTER THE LOAN CLOSES, your lender will not continuously ask for your updated paychecks, bank statements and annual income tax returns. BUT...in apartment transactions…you lender is your single largest partner and needs continuous financial performance information on you and the asset either on a quarterly or annual basis. Updated operating statements, rent rolls, rehab construction updates, immediate health and safety concerns, updated personal financial statements, personal tax returns are some of the data points collected. Also, be prepared for an annual lender visit to your asset.
