How to Finance a BRRRR Investment

Today we are going to discuss how to finance a BRRRR investment!  Just to clarify, BRRRR stands for buy, rehab, rent, refinance, and repeat. Financing is often the biggest roadblock that investors face when using the BRRRR method. However, by using it correctly, you can put little to no money in and win the real estate investing game.

Financing is the biggest roadblock.

How can you build your portfolio quickly and easily while using little to none of your own money? The answer is by finding the right loan. The right loan is one that allows you to buy an undermarket property, will cover the purchase, and cover the rehab. Since the success of BRRRR is reliant on buying properties that are under market, it is imperative that you have the right loan. To get on the fast track to success you need to use a  bridge loan, hard money loan, or a private loan when considering BRRRR.


Traditional loans:

Buy a rental property for $300K.

Traditional Lender requires 20% down, which totals $60K

Your $60K is gone.

This would be for only one property.


Buy a rental property for $300K

Closing costs are $6K.

If you were to  buy 10 properties it would total of $60K

After refinance the property would have $54K in equity.

If you bought 10 properties and refinanced them all, the equity would be $540K 

This is money that you have just created by using little to none of your own money. 

One method, 2 loans.

Just to clarify, BRRRR is not a type of loan. Instead, it is a strategy that uses 2 different loans. One loan is to purchase and fix up the property. The second loan is a long term loan that you can put the property into after it is fixed up. Many lenders are able to cover 100% of the purchase as well as 100% of the refinance depending on the property. One thing to keep in mind is that some lenders have restrictions as too when you can refinance the property. It is important that you understand the system so that you know what’s coming!

BRRRR timeline:

30-45 days – get in and rehab

30-60 days – rent out the property

60-90 days – refinance into a long term loan

While there might be some carry costs, the rent is going to cover it.
