What you need to know about DSCR loans

How is DSCR different?

Quontic’s DSCR loan is different from other DSCR loans in that:

Why is DSCR important?

A lender needs to know your debt-service coverage ratio to determine if the investment property’s potential income will be enough to repay the loan. Since Quontic requires a minimum DSCR of .75x, the property will qualify for a DSCR loan if the rental income generated from it is greater than the proposed loan payment.

How is DSCR calculated?

At Quontic, we calculate DSCR by dividing the gross rental income minus the real estate taxes, insurance and HOA fees (if applicable) by the proposed principal and interest payment.

What types of properties are eligible for DSCR?

Property types eligible for DSCR include single-family homes, 2-4 family units, planned unit developments (PUDS), condos and condotels.
