Have you ever heard the expression “Asset rich, cash poor” or alternatively “House rich, cash poor”? It is used to refer to persons who are not “poor” in the strictest sense of the word because they own valuable assets (such as a nice house with a swimming pool, two brand new cars, big screen TVs, expensive furniture, among other things) but who can be, at some moment in time, in a situation where the cash they have available is not enough to cover their cash flow requirements. In the lingo of realtors, bankers, and private mortgage lenders, someone who is “House rich, cash poor” is abbreviated by using the term “House Poor.”

At AMI Lenders, we believe 2022 is still a good time, especially for first-time buyers, to get a mortgage and purchase a lovely house for you and your family. Interest rates are still attractive compared to previous decades, and house price increases have slowed since the recent pandemic. Finally, buying a house with a fixed-rate mortgage is still a good hedge against inflation's effects.

For over 30 years, AMI Lenders has helped hundreds of real estate investors finance their investments in fix-&-flip properties. Therefore, it is evident to us that successful fix-&-flip projects start with the investor (or "flipper") doing their homework and finding an investment property, not only with a significant discount off its market value but also in the right location and at the right time. In this blog, we want to share what we have seen successful flippers do when hunting for an investment property.

There has been troubling news released by S&P/Experian, as reports indicate that defaults on first credit payments by consumers are on the rise.
