There are several factors that determine interest rates for DSCR loans:
The higher your credit score, the lower your interest rate. Most Florida DSCR lenders will use a Tri Merge Credit Report which is a hard inquiry from all three credit bureaus. The lender ignores the highest and lowest scores and uses the middle score as their input to price your DSCR loan.
|Credit Score||Interest Rate|
|740 - 759||+0.05%|
|720 - 739||+0.1%|
|700 - 719||+0.15%|
|680 - 699||+0.25%|
|660 - 679||+0.50%|
Did you know that your credit score also impacts your LTV?
|Credit Score||LTV (purchase)||LTV (cash out refi)|
|700 - 719||75%||70%|
|680 - 699||70%||65%|
|660 - 679||65%||65%|
To make sure you have the best possible interest rate and LTV, we recommend always keeping your credit score above 720.
The lower your loan amount, the higher your interest rate. Small loans generate lower interest income for lenders, so most lenders will want a slightly higher interest rate to increase the interest income. Low loan amounts are less common in Florida given home price appreciation which is driven by strong demand from rental property investors, vacation rental investors and snowbirds.
|Loan Amount||Interest Rate|
|$125,000 - $150,000||+0.1%|
|$100,000 - $125,000||+0.2%|
|$75,000 - $100,000||+0.3%|
|$50,000 - $75,000||+0.4%|
The lower your loan-to-value (LTV), the lower your default risk. Accordingly, the lower your LTV, the lower your interest rate. This is because lower LTV means you you have more equity in the deal and a lower payment, which makes you better able to handle shocks including home price decline, non-paying tenants, and unexpected maintenance.
Believe it or not, your interest rate will vary slightly depending on the type of property. A single family residence generally has the lowest interest rate while condos, duplexes, triplexes, quadplexes and 5+ unit multifamily will carry a slight risk premium.
Some DSCR lenders require at least 1 rental property, while other lenders like OfferMarket work with first time investors with 0 verifiable experience. In certain cases, your interest rate will be progressively lower as your experience increases. A proven track record of rental property investing and rental property management is directly correlated with lower default risk and we reward you with lower interest rates as your portfolio grows.
A prepayment penalty for DSCR loans is common. This is a fee charged if you pay off your loan within a specific period of time. Most prepayment penalties are "stepdown" meaning the penalty charged as a percentage of your principal loan balance declines over the duration of the prepayment penalty period. The most common pre-payment penalty options are 3-2-1 and 5-4-3-2-1. Watch the video below to learn more about prepayment penalties. The higher the prepayment penalty, the lower the interest rate.

We offer DSCR loans for your Florida short term rental (STR). It's important to note that short term rental loans will commonly carry a higher interest rate, higher origination fee, and slightly lower LTV than DSCR loans for rental properties that are leased for 12 month terms.
Florida is a great market for short term rentals, especially with demand from sites like Airbnb and VRBO. To determine your LTV, our short term rental program underwriter will take 80% of the Airdna Rentalizer rent estimate as the input for your DSCR. Depending on market volatility, we may require slightly higher DSCR (1.2) than our long term rental program (1.1).
