I do loans for investors all the time. Your first mistake is that you are dealing with the local banks!! There are many programs out there that will allow the investor to re-fi on appraised value with less than 12 months ownership seasoning. Just not at the local banks!!!. Find an experianced mortgage broker in your area familiar with real estate investors. Most Preferably one that owns investment property him or herself. Otherwise they really don’t understand what you are doing, although they will say they do. A good mortgage broker experianced in real estate investing will help make you tons of money. Do not get hung up on fees as they will make you 100 times the amount of money they will charge you. Most conforming lendors will have no problem doing this loan for you. You are not going to get a 100% LTV loan, but you could probably get 80%.

I agree with Dan, go to a Mortgage Broker who owns investment properties. I’m in Boise, and I found only two local sources who will use appraised value on a purchase. Sometimes 75-80% will work, other times we have to get some short term owner financing and do our fix up and then our Mortgage Broker will refi us based on the new, higher value. If you go that route, Stay away from a lease option, but insist on a short term land contract or contract for deed. Lenders are treating lease options less than 1 yr old less favorably than a similar contract for deed. Good Luck and Happy Hunting!
