Most lenders will use 75% just as you thought. It’s difficult for me to discuss various strategies, when we’re talking hypothetical and don’t have an example with numbers.
Also, I would need to have information about the subject property, the area, you, etc.
How realistic your concept of having the rents fully cover your payments would depend on your area, and how good of a buy you’ve made, but in many areas it’s not out of the question.
Remember Ann, You make your money on the buy, rather it be equity or cash flow.
If you buy based on equity, the cash flow should be automatic.
Ann, I want to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas,
