By: Skyler Moore

Financing Denver investment property can be difficult in any real estate market, especially if the investor is a business owner that shows a fluctuating income.  Banks are very strict with lending criteria currently and in my opinion often try and find a reason why not to lend money, opposed to reasons why they should lend money to a borrower.  I have seen individuals with enough liquid cash to cover the loan have difficulties qualifying.

Evaluating Denver Investment Property

Skyler Moore

Investors all across the country have been burnt by purchasing a proforma, rather than an investment property.  I personally have seen this happen over and over again in the Denver market for both residential and commercial investment properties.  Sure property values have dropped, which has caused real estate owners to become upside down, but often the proforma numbers they were given were set up for failure.
