Finance Jamaica Real Estate Purchases

Learn where to locate financing for Jamaican Property

Finding Jamaica real estate in good location at a good sale price is key for success when investing in Jamaica real estate. However this is almost the easy part as the cash flow will determine if you can take advantage of the Jamaica real estate deal that you have found. However let us assume you will receive from the Jamaican property over $1000 per month in economic rent. The present Jamaica real estate owner wants to sell the Jamaican property for $300,000. You want to purchase the real estate with a $20,000 down payment. Now you need to cover the rest to secure the Jamaican property.

Jamaican mortgage financing will assist by allowing you to buy the Jamaican property with the stipulation that you pay a monthly fee or mortgage installment to pay it back. This monthly fee will include principal or initial amount of cash borrowed to purchase the Jamaica real estate and interest being charged by your Jamaican mortgage bank.

Jamaica real estate mortgages can be divided into two categories, residential and commercial, however investors will purchase residential real estate in Jamaica for the specific purpose of collecting economic rent. This means that the Jamaica mortgage loan will take on different specific features, such as a reduced loan term a higher interest rate and lower funding total. This is what mainly deters many Jamaica real estate investors as the amount to pay as a deposit moves from 5% to 25%.

As for the actual Jamaica real estate loan programs, the type of loan you can get will depend on many factors such as how long you are going to stay at the house, how much money you are going to deposit on the Jamaican property, and how will you handle the closing costs and the end of the real estate transaction. Purchasing Jamaican property for economic rent only is frowned upon by Jamaican mortgage lenders as they are aware that inflation will force the value of the Jamaica real estate up and the rent to go up as well.

Jamaican real estate mortgage loan programs offered will consist of fixed-rate mortgages. These are loans that the interest rate and principal payments stay the same throughout the life of the Jamaican mortgage loan. Adjustable-rate mortgages which are not used in Jamaica real estate mortgages are set up so the interest rate changes over the life of the loan.

The Jamaica real estate loans you may find available include:

* 30 year fixed-rate Jamaican real estate mortgage - A 30 year fixed-rate loan provides you with the ability to make monthly payments for the entire 30 years you have the loan. This type of Jamaica real estate loan is good for it locks you in a low interest rate for the entire loan period.

* 10 year fixed-rate Jamaican real estate mortgage - This is just like the previous two loans, except because you are paying the loan off in 10 years instead

There are others Jamaica real estate loan programs but the general idea is that these programs are based on the following criteria:

A. The Term of Mortgage Loan

B. For residential or commercial Jamaican real estate purposes

C. The interest rate charged
