An Overview of Visio’s Vacation Rental Loan Program

Visio Vacation Loan Program

At Visio Lending, we take pride in on our ability to make sense of underwriting short-term rents to help investors across the country grow their vacation rental portfolios. Our vacation loans, like all our loan programs, are DSCR-based, meaning we focus on property cash-flow rather than personal income. We have a very innovative program to help investors thrive.
