A mortgage. They just have different guidelines than primary residence.


Maybe check out a resource like Bigger pockets to see different loan options. If this is your first investment property, or you're a bit risk adverse, I'd probably go with a conventional loan.but there are a few other options (going in with partners, hard money lenders, etc). Also, your strategy may influence your choice. Are you buying to hold? Are you flipping? And so on


Will you live in the property or is this purely going to be a rental?

Expect minimum 25% down and basically for a conventional loan it will come down to your dscr

20% with mortgage if it’s purely rental. You can’t really do anything else unless you’re flipping then use private or hard money

Potentially a dumb question, but for the employment history part of the application, should you include internships? If so, do you annualize the amount of your internship pay? I’ve included them in my resume but feels a little weird to put them at the same level as my first full time job.


Like most of the agencies, we were operating in a high touch environment with our clients to grow business. And in 2020 everyone understood the need to operate remotely and focused on getting the work done. However a lot of sales/opportunities for growth were discovered in informal coffee/lunch sessions with clients. I wonder how are all of you engaging with clients in a remote set up. Would love to hear everyone’s experiences..

Is it worth it to go back to school for a better track to a FAANG company?

If you apply to an audit client, how restrictive is it? Would you need to let your company know, even if you are just applying? I am in consulting so I have never been on an audit engagement.
