HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR MY LOAN TO CLOSE?
Apartment Bank loans typically close in 30 to 60 days. However, several factors can affect the amount of time it takes for your loan to close. One major influence is your property appraisal. Typically, buildings in more suburban areas will be much easier to obtain an appraisal for than buildings located in more rural areas. You can also speed up the process by returning your documents in a timely manner.
WHAT CRITERIA WILL I NEED TO MEET IN ORDER TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR A LOAN?
Apartment Bank looks at each applicant as an individual. Each of these criteria will be weighed against each other to provide you with the best financing available to you.
Credit Score: Your credit score will play an important role in determining the rates and terms that are available to you.
Building type: We can finance a wide array of building types including mixed use properties, student housing, senior housing, apartments and other multifamily housing, small balance commercial properties, and mobile home parks.
Down payment: For new purchases, you will need to provide us with proof of funds for the down payment. We will also require a copy of your most recent bank statement, as well as a copy of your purchase agreement.
Appraisal: The appraisal is the largest factor in determining if the property can support the loan amount you are requesting. We will order an appraisal which will assess the actual value of the property.
