Real Estate Investing Explained

With Support from SmallChange

LOAN TO VALUE vs. LOAN TO COST

 

When a sponsor goes out and buys a piece of real estate they will be financing it with two key components of capital.

One is going to be debt that they're going to get from the bank and the other is going to be equity that they're going to be asking you for.

Debt, when it is placed on the property, is never these days going to be 100% of what the sponsor needs. If it were, then they wouldn't need your equity, and one of the ways that banks determine how much they're going to lend to a sponsor is by using one of two ratios, loan to cost or loan to value.
