What is Awning's mission?

Our mission is to make real estate investing more accessible. 90% of the world's wealth has been built through real estate, but the process has become increasingly harder and more time consuming for the individual investor. We want to help 100,000 people grow their net worth and achieve financial freedom by using one of the highest-yield and most stable methods to do so.

How much should I have to invest in single-family homes?

Although Awning is not a mortgage company and a mortgage expert can provide the best guidance for your specific scenario, we have compiled some general guidelines. 

Investors need $25,000 to invest in single-family homes through Awning. Here are estimated expenses for a $100K single-family home investment in Alabama: 20% or $20K as a down payment, $2.5K in closing costs and $2.5K to get rent ready.

Down payment requirements are higher for investment properties, with 20-25% as a general minimum. While closing costs can sometimes be lower, we suggest investors expect at least $5,000 in expenses to close on the property. Getting a home rent ready can vary, depending on the level of renovations. However, the initial costs of cleaning and preparing a home plus finding a tenant are around $5,000. 

Investors should get a pre-approval letter to figure out how much they can qualify for. Work with a lender or use one of the online lenders we partner with that can provide that letter in minutes. 

There are no other qualifications to invest with Awning.
