John Goodpaster - Sales Director

John Goodpaster

Senior Managing Director

Hi, I am a 20 year veteran of the Mortgage Banking/Brokering industry dedicated to the highest level of customer service and have consistently been ranked amongst the Top professionals in my field. Through the lender relationships established over my tenure in the mortgage industry, I have access to the most competitive terms and programs available in today’s mortgage market. more... With the many changes the lending community has been faced with these past few years, John, with the support of his seasoned team and lender network, has been able to succeed at the highest level in securing the most competitive terms for his clients.
Buying an investment property in Southern California this year makes more sense than in many years. Just a few short years ago it was impossible to purchase a property in Southern California, and have positive cash flow, without either a very large down payment, or using a short term adjustable or negatively amortizing loan program. Property values had increased very quickly, but a primary reason for the increase was the aggressive financing available, not home buyers income.
Now, property values have adjusted downward, back to an affordable zone not only for home buyers looking for a home to live in, but also for investors looking for solid investments. Financing is not as easy as it was a few years ago, but great loan programs still exist for strong real estate investors. The key is to turn to a Real Estate Financing Expert who understands the in’s and out’s of financing investment properties.
I have over 20 years experience helping real estate investors finance their investment properties. Whether you are looking to purchase your first investment property, or purchase your 100th property, I can help you find the best program based on your long and short term financial goals.
I will prove to be a great source of information for learning some of the loan options currently available to purchase or refinance southern California investment properties. And please, if you have any questions or would like to see customized loan scenarios, please call, email, or complete the contact form on the right.
I would be happy to prepare custom Investment Property scenarios which will have details on what you qualify for, what your monthly payment will be, and whether or not you will need money for closing costs. It is important that you see all your options before you search for a home.
