I am looking at several 5-8 unit properties where the seller has agreed to carry second of 30% and have checked with a few finance companies that feel they will approve a 70% first assuming everything checks out. Does this seem feasible to go to 100% CLTV? Everything I read suggest money is very tight, but on paper this works and with anticpated rates it may have small positive cashflow. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I specialize in commercial finance and you will find that most of the lenders willing to go up to 70% leverage will not want a second trust deed for the remaining 30% of equity.
Lenders want to see you have equity in the property these days. Contact me if you have any other questions.

Depending how you structure the 30% repayment and how well you negotiated the deal down, this could be a GREAT deal!

There is no 100% lending out there at this time.

See if the lender will still lend once you tell them about the second.
