A Debt Service Coverage Ratio (DSCR) mortgage loan is a type of loan that allows property investors to use the rental income generated from the property they want to purchase to qualify for a loan, rather than relying solely on their personal income. The DSCR is a ratio that measures the property’s cash flow available to cover its debt payments. It is calculated by dividing the property’s net operating income (NOI) by its total debt service. Different lenders may have different DSCR requirements, but generally, a DSCR of 1.0 or higher indicates that the property’s cash flow is sufficient to cover its debt payments.
When applying for a DSCR mortgage loan, it’s important to have a good understanding of the rental market in the area where you plan to invest, as well as a solid business plan that shows how you will manage and maintain the property to generate consistent rental income. Lenders will want to see that the property has a strong rental history and potential for future rental income growth.
It’s also important to note that DSCR mortgage loans may have higher interest rates and stricter underwriting requirements compared to traditional mortgage loans.
