      I have purchased and financed investment properties in other places (including Vancouver BC) but am not up to speed on what banks are requiring to lend money on a rental condo in San Francisco. * In the past the amount I was able to borrow was determined solely on the basis of the rental revenue the property would generate with a upper limit on the loan-to-value ratio (e.g., about 65%).
      *
      Questions:
      *
      1. *What is the current limit on load-to-value ratio?
      *
      2. *Can the property be financed solely on the basis of rental revenues or will the bank want to take into account my current income?
      *
      3. *If current income is also considered, how so? *What are the parameters? *
      *
      Initially, I’m planning on renting a place to live on a temporary basis until I find something to buy. *Rather than break my lease and immediately move into it I would prefer to rent out the property until I decide whether I want to retire in San Francisco or in Vancouver. *
      *
      Any thoughts? *
