Hobby Farms - One of the challenges in financing a home in Yamhill County is that many of the rural properties have acreage and a small income producing component. Tax Code may allow for a tax break if a portion of the land is kept in production. i.e. raising a few cows, renting a stall out for a horse, or growing grapes. (Please consult a CPA or Real Estate attorney as I am neither). Most lenders will not accept a loan with Schedule E income from the property.
We have 3 solutions for financing a Yamhill County Hobby Farm.
- If the loan is under $417,000 we may have the ability to get a variance from Fannie Mae to allow for a small amount of income to be derived from the property. The key is that it cannot be a farm.
- We also have an Industry leading Portfolio loan that goes up to $1.5 million with extremely competitive rates. Since it's our money and we service the loan, we will use common sense underwriting to assess the risk.
- We can also broker the loan to several lenders who specialize in rural properties.
Of course, we also provide conventional and FHA financing, including the 203k Rehab loan and the Section 184 Native American Loan.
