There are many benefits to using AirBNB for all of your vacation rental needs, but now the online marketplace is teaming up with Together Money and will consider commercial mortgages terms for investors that want to rent property to use for AirBNB services.

A report from states that AirBNB has decided to enter a different type of industry in hopes of expanding its business even more. This is an interesting development plan that are intriguing many people throughout the industry, especially those in the real estate market. But since this is the only option out there like this, be prepared to pay higher interest rates.

For purchases through AirBNB commercial mortgages, the Maximum Loan to Value is 75 percent and the minimum interest rate starts at 7.9 percent for the first 12 months. After the first year, the interest rate will jump to around a minimum of 9.9 percent. One thing that is interesting is that there is no minimum income requirement, but the net profit times 50 percent needs to exceed any of the loan repayments.

When it comes to getting approved for commercial mortgages this way, you of course need to provide documentation that proves that you are using your property for AirBNB services. Also, be prepared to provide documentation that you will be able to meet the requirement regarding your net profit. To avoid higher interest rates and more chance of approval, provide excellent credit history if available and also any significant collateral to include in the terms.

Many in the industry are eager to see how commercial mortgages will work with AirBNB

AirBNB is well-known throughout the world that calls itself an online marketplace that offers vacation rentals and more in over 65,000 cities in 191 countries. Many people that travel for business and just for leisure are starting to use AirBNB more so than booking ordinary hotel rooms. The privately held company was founded in 2016 and is headquartered in San Francisco, California. AirBNB is offered across the globe, so this new idea could impact the economy on a global scale.

Opening up commercial mortgages to a new market could be successful

Many are wondering if it is an appropriate move for AirBNB to offer commercial mortgages. A commercial contract with the company isn’t going to come at a cheap rate, but there could be many benefits to the industry with this new concept. The news of this partnership with AirBNB and Together Money just came out this week, so it is still unclear if this will be a win-win situation for all involved.
