Mortgage professionals are calling for an independent lender to refocus on the rental property market as frustrations mount following rule changes at several lenders – most recently at a big bank.

    It is a sign of the times, all of the new regulations are making it harder and harder...

    There is zero chance a monoline is going to change their policy anytime soon to open it up to real estate investors. The monolines all have the same source of funds, that is why there is no diversity in the products being sold. I see it getting worse and worse and that is why you better make sure you are with a good lender when you buy an investment property. The ability to pull out equity as it builds up simply will not happen for many anymore. It is true we do need to stop living in the past. In 2007 when you could buy with zero down and a 40 yr amortization on a rental and people bought 10 in one year, it should have never happened....
