What’s an investment property loan?

Before you buy investment property, do your homework.

Investing in real estate is like any kind of investment — it's wise to do your homework and assess both the benefits and the risks involved. If you've been thinking about buying investment property, consider the following:

  • Determine the type of property you want to invest in: rental homes, condominiums, and so on.
  • Decide if you want to invest short- or long-term.
  • Ask yourself if you're ready to be a landlord.

If you've already decided to purchase a rental property, research the property thoroughly beforehand to help determine if the investment will be profitable. Consider learning more about all your mortgage options.
