Example: Investment Property ADU Construction Request

  • Current Value $820,000
  • After Repair Value $1,200,000
  • Amount Owed on Existing 1st Mortgage $580,000


LTV Option

Based on the Current Value (LTV) of $820,000, the max cash-out refinance loan amount at 65 LTV would be $533,000, which would not work in this case because they already owe $580,000.


ARV Option

However, based on the After Repair Value (ARV) of $1,200,000, the max ARV construction loan at 65 ARV would be $780,000.  Because the borrower owes $580,800 on their 1st mortgage, they could get about $200,000 cash out to build an ADU.  This could be done in either 1st or 2nd lien position, depending on their terms on the current 1st mortgages. For the ARV loans, borrowers need to provide 2-3 recent comparable sales within 1 mile that have ADU’s.
