Build Wealth with Airbnb or Short-Term Rental Property Type Investments
A short term rental loan pertains to any form of financing accessible to real estate investors for acquiring a property designated for use as an Airbnb or short-term vacation rental. Typically, a minimum down payment of 20% is required for these loans when purchasing an Airbnb type property.

When seeking financing for your short term rental property, acquiring the necessary cash for your down payment can be facilitated through options like a home equity line of credit or a cash-out refinance on your primary residence.
