Michael, explore all options, any traditional lending, like FHA, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will need to see 2 years worth of U.S. tax returns. Your best option is to explore private money or Hard Money loan. The rate will be slightly higher because this is some what out the box lending.

A pledged assets loan pledging about $800,000 in liquid assets may qualify for about $400,000 financing with 10% down. $400,000 is not going to buy much in San Francisco. You may want to look at other areas. Also, this would have to be a 2nd home, not a rental. ... Happy funding, Rudi

Depending upon your ability to qualify for a loan, it may be possible to use your liquid assets in a particular loan program from 1 of our 39 lenders to purchase your rental home in San Francisco. While 100% financing may be unlikely, 90% is not. The interest rate is very much predicated on the cost of the home you purchase, your FICO scores, and some other relevant financial criteria. I will be happy to discuss the loan possibilites with you, Michael. Please call me at 626-796-7712 or 626-644-2020. Click on my picture and you will be redirected to our web site. Our corporate office is in the San Francisco area, which will make it very convenient for me to work with you on your loan.
