Pricing & Submitting a Deal 

Through the Visio Broker Portal, you can obtain preliminary pricing in less than two minutes AND submit deals you'd like to pursue directly to your Account Executive. Here's how it works.

Submit a Deal

Click the "Submit a Deal" button on your homepage. Don't worry if you are just browsing, you can still see pricing without formally submitting a deal.

 

Enter Address

 

Addresss 

Enter the property address and details. Final property condition is determined by the appraisal, but for preliminary pricing answer to the best of your knowledge. On a scale of C1-C6, C1 is in prime condition and C6 is a tear-down. 

Enter the number of units for your rental property. If the property has more than four units, reach out and contact your Account Executive, Choosing four units when you have five or more will lead to inaccurate pricing estimates.

 

Provide the Loan Details

Loan Details

Provide us with key loan details to ensure accurate pricing. We'll need to know the loan type and whether the property is intended as a short-term or long-term rental. 

If the property is a long-term rental, let us know whether the property is rented and the current rent. If the property is not currently rented, provide your estimate of the market rent. 

 

Provide the Loan Values

Loan Values

Estimate the property value, then input your desired Loan-to-Value (LTV) or loan amount- when updating one field, the other will automatically update. Input your desired Yield Spread Premium (YSP), lender discount points (origination fee), and Prepayment Penalty (PPP).

 

YSP allows the customer to finance part of your compensation by paying a higher interest rate on the loan. For example, by selecting "1," you will receive one point in lender paid compensation on the loan for a slightly higher interest rate. Learn more about Yield Spread Premium.

Our prepayment penalty options include a 54321, 321, and 300.

 

Determine the Monthly Cost

Cost

Help us calculate PITIA (Principal, Interest, Tax, Insurance, and Association Dues). Input any monthly fees in addition to estimated title and closing fees, lien, mortgages, or payoffs owed on the property.

 

 

Provide Borrower Information

Borrower

The last step to obtain preliminary pricing is to provide us with an accurate estimate of the borrower's credit score. An accurate credit score estimate is crucial to determining pricing. Click "See Pricing Results" to see all qualified Rental360 products. Note, you are not submitting anything to an Account Executive by seeing the pricing. 

 

 

See Preliminary Pricing Results

Sample

Now, you can see all the eligible loan products with preliminary pricing. Click "Select on each product to see details. If you wish to change the pricing, you can alter the loan variables. For instance, adjust the LTV, PPP, or points to see how each value impacts your loan quote. Keep in mind, this proposal is non-binding and NOT a formal estimate.

 

 

Submit a Deal to Your Account Executive

Details

If you would like to speak to your Account Executive about a loan scenario, click "SELECT" next to that loan product, 

You will then be shown a "Submit to an Account Executive" button. Click on it, and the scenario will be sent. There will be a confirmation on the screen to alert you that your proposal has been submitted, and your Account Executive will follow up directly with you on your submission.
