Show me the money! – As you build your Real Estate Investing Power Team you may want to have several questions that you ask each potential member.

There is not an exact script to interview your Banker, but here are several questions you can consider asking your Banker:

1. What types of mortgages/loan products do you have for real estate investors?

2. Do you have a seasoning requirement? If so, how long is that requirement?

3. What percentage amount will you loan based on loan to value?

4. Will you base loans on the appraised after repaired value rather than the purchase price plus repairs?

5. What is the total loan aggregate amount you will loan to each investor?

6. How quickly can you above a mortgage, refinance, etc.?

7. Are you authorized to approve mortgages or does it go in front of a board or banking committee?

8. Do you retain your mortgages as in-house portfolio mortgages or sell them on the secondary market?

9. What are the current terms, conditions and rates for the various mortgages you offer to investors?

10. If I do business today, would the approval process be faster because you have a majority of the boilerplate paperwork already as we present other potential property transactions?

11. Are there any penalties for early payoff?

12. What are the application fees and loan processing fees?

13. Can I get an email and secondary number (either cell phone number or office phone) to contact you with further questions?
