A hard money lender, such as Capital Funding Financial, is a great finance option when looking for a loan to fund a house flip. Hard money loans are ideal for property investors who are looking for a source of finance to quickly fix and flip a property, particularly if your credit history isn’t subpar. You may have considered other loan options to fund your house flip, including financing from banks and credit unions, peer-to-peer lenders, a home equity loan, or a home equity line of credit (HELOC) but if you have average income, below average credit, or simply do not have the time to wait around for a bank then a hard money loan is a great fit for you!

At Capital Funding Financial, we offer variety of fix and flip loan structures such as a 12 or 24 month interest only loan for beginners and seasoned professionals or developers.

WHAT IS A FIX AND FLIP LOAN?

A fix and flip loan program provides real estate investors with the capital needed to purchase or refinance a property which needs renovation or rehab in order to be sold or stabilized.

To qualify as a flip, the investment property must an investment property or spec home which is going to be sold or rented out upon completion and not occupied as a primary residence.

Investors typically buy cheap, run-down, and distressed properties and renovate them quickly to resell at a much higher price, this is commonly known as ‘house flipping.’

HOW DOES A FIX AND FLIP LOAN DIFFER FROM A CONVENTIONAL MORTGAGE?

You are probably aware that a traditional mortgage can be used to finance a single property – your primary residence. On the other hand, fix and flip loans are used to purchase a real estate investment property in order to renovate it and quickly sell it for a profit. While they were traditionally used to purchase commercial properties, fix and flip property loans are now commonly sourced to buy residential rental properties in order to generate a quick profit for investors. While a conventional loan program focuses heavily on personal income and credit scores (chattel mortgages), fix & flip loan takes into account the potential for significant return on investment in a short period of time after making the necessary capital improvements to the property to sell it.

There are some crucial differences between conventional mortgage loans offered through banks and investment property loans, and these can be particularly challenging for rental investors obtaining financing from a local bank versus a private lender such as Capital Funding Financial.

4 KEY DIFFERENCES:

  1. PROPERTY TYPE

To qualify for Fix and Flip, your chosen real estate must fit into qualifying categories: single-family properties, multifamily units, townhouses, planned unit developments, or condominiums. Commercial Office, Retail, Industrial, and Multifamily will fit on Capital Funding Financials’ Commercial Program but not as an asset type on the SFR Fix and Flip Program.

When obtaining a traditional mortgage, the condition of the property is a key consideration and will help to determine the value and acceptance of the loan. The as-is condition must be deemed suitable to justify the mortgage. With fix and flip loans, the condition of the property is typically bad so hard money lenders focus more on the after-repair value of the property versus the “as is” value.

  1. INTEREST RATES

Interest rates and fees are typically higher on an investment property given investment properties are perceived to have more risk due to the speculation. However the gap between conventional and rental investment loan rates has shrunk in the last year as capital markets have opened up in their appetite in purchasing fix and flip bridge loans.

Fix and flip loans are designed to offer a short-term finance solution, lasting around 12 t0 24 months, with investors making interest-only payments each month. Traditional mortgages, on the other hand, are long-term loans typically amortized over a term of between 15 and 30 years.

  1. DOWN PAYMENT

Conventional Lenders or Banks often require a larger down payment requirement to secure an investment property loan.

When flipping houses, speed is the most important thing! Therefore, the process of applying for, and receiving, a fix and flip loan must be efficient. For this reason, fix and flip loans can be processed in as little as 7 to 10 business days. Traditional bank loans can take between 45 and 60 business days to close. This is mainly due to stringent regulations, involving detailed credit checks and examination of the property’s condition. While not an issue when purchasing your primary residence, this lengthy process would be unsuitable for fix and flip financing which makes

  1.  CREDIT

High Credit Score Requirements along with a low debt to income ratio is required for conventional bank rental loans.

While a conventional home loan is heavily determined by an investor’s individual credit history and debt to income ratio, this is not deemed as important when it comes to fix and flip financing, and other hard money loans. A fix and flip lender may ask for a minimum credit score, but they will be more interested in financial projections, taking into account the projected value of the renovated property. If you have a proven track record with experience in the flipping business, this will also be taken into consideration in your loan approval. After all, when it comes to flipping houses, a successful track record counts for a lot!

 

WHAT TYPE OF  PROPERTIES CAN FIX AND FLIP LOANS BE USED FOR?

Rental loans can be used to finance property types such as single-family homes, duplexes, triplexes, quadplexes, multifamily units, townhouses, planned unit developments, and condominiums.

Single-family homes are defined as properties designed to house one family aka one housing unit. Whereas a multifamily home is a residential property containing more than one family. Capital Funding Financials’ rental loans do qualify 1–4-unit residential buildings as “Single-family.”
