Question Question for the Investors

I am purchasing a house which I will be renting out as part of my future retirement plans but I will be borrowing the money for this purchase. I have a few differnt options to get this money including... Signature loan, Line of credit on my net worth, Line of credit against my house (second mortgage basically), 401K loan or open to ideas anyone can bring up. I don't have a problem getting this money but I am not sure which is the best rout especially unsure about borrowing against 401K on loan NOT a withdraw since this is a investment that will also pay itself off in the near future.... anyone done this and care to share how you did it?

Since it is a second home, would a HELOC interest be deductible? If so, that may be the best way.

It would be but that attaches it to my home (draws attention from its for taxes) where as a line of credit on my net worth puts it clear in my name along with the fact that it's a short term (5 yrs) loan

You can borrow the money from a lender for roughly 4% fixed for 10 years. File a schedule E with your returns. You can right off interest, insurance taxes, repairs and depreciation.

I've done exactly this by Borrowing against my 401k. The cash sale aspect allows me to bypass most fees normally associated with home buying. Those savings offset any market loss incurred from the$ not being in my 401k account. That being said, I do all my own title research, inspections, and I write my own earnest money contracts. I've literally closed home sales for $20 total closing costs. And that's just because that's half the fee the county charged to file the deed. Lol I'm so cheap I made the seller kick in the other $20

I would do the home equity loan. You can write off any interest expense from any loan source. I'm not sure about the 401K loan because you're paying the interest to yourself. The only bad thing about this is you are going to pay closing cost twice.

Don't do a 401k loan for that. The money you borrow against does not earn any interest while you are paying back the loan.

kinda what I figured, looks like I am going with line of credit since it's easier for me to access and use for what I need on the house without worrying about loan value of house or if I decide to finance % 50 or % 100 of house

Weedeater, a line of credit may be your best option but one thing you need to look at is what kind of rate can you get by just simply refinancing your primary residence and skip the 2nd mortgage or line of credit option. Advantage to this is that you will have only one note to pay and may be able to get your best interest rate by refinancing. You may have some additional up front costs but could potentially save in the near future with a lower note. Just a thought. Loan against your 401K should be last option.
