What is a hard money loan?
A hard money loan is a loan given to a borrower from a lender based mostly on the worth of the underlying asset that is collateralized. Where asset based lenders aka hard money lenders focus primarily on the worth of the asset used as collateral for the loan traditional banks and lenders focus chiefly on the credit and income of the borrower. Where conventional loans are generally for 15–20 year terms, hard money loans are used as a short term solution (1–3 years normally) as a bridge to acquire a rehab, or stabilize a commercial, retail, office, industrial, multi–family, or single family residential home.
Why exactly would a person choose a hard money loan (asset–based loan) over a traditional loan provided by a bank with lower rates?
There are many reasons why a borrower would choose to use private funding or a hard money loan over a more affordable conventional funding: (1) Quick Funding– conventional banks take the absolute minimum of 45 days to finance a single family residential loan, any where between 60–90 days to finance a commercial loan, and over 120 days to fund a development loan. Whereas, a hard money loan is typically funded within 7–14 days. (2) Property Requires Work– due to the conventional bank‘s quite conservative underwriting guidelines, most will not lend on properties needing repair. As an example, a loan secured by a property in need of repairs is quite infrequently funded by banks before it can be used; hence the borrower uses a hard money lender then, and rehabilitate and to buy the property settlement the hard money loan with conventional financing. Another example would be a commercial property that has no tenants… a bank won’t loan until the property is leased up. However, short-term funding will be provided by a personal lender to the borrower to buy the property and rent it up. Once the property is stabilized for a period of time that is specific, the hard money loan will be refinanced by a commercial lender with conventional funding. (3) Not based solely on credit or income– Traditional banks rely greatly on a borrower’s credit score, past income, and ability to repay the debt. So traditional banks for normal funding consistently turn down quality borrowers including doctors, lawyers, and attorneys who’ve high incomes but also have lots of debt. Therefore, there is a huge importance of private lenders who look the value of the underlying asset in comparison to the loan amount versus the borrower’s credit history. At Capital Funding Financial, we base our capital decision mostly on the LTV (loan to value). We typically look for a 65% to a maximum of 80% LTV in our loans. What that means is we typically lend out 65% – 80% of the appraised value of the property to the borrower.
What are the interest rates involved in hard money loans?
Hard money loan rates normally range from 10% all the way up to 15%. The rate by the lender is dependent upon taking a look at a mix of variables such as: (1) loan to value ratio, (2) borrower’s credit score & income, (3) the property condition and place, (4) borrower’s “skin in the game” (amount of cash equity in the property). At Capital Funding Financial we offer the lowest rates around starting at 7.99%*
What are the fees associated with asset based lending?
Hard money lenders charge financing origination fee of 3% to 5% of the amount of the loan. The lender will then charge various fees for document preparation by an attorney, an application fee, assessment fee from an unaffiliated appraiser, and financing processing fee. Capital Funding Financial offers straight forward provisions without all the rubbish fees that are concealed and costs a very low origination fee of merely 1.50% – 2.50%*
Can the loan fees be paid from your loan proceeds?
Yes, so long as there is a huge enough equity cushion in the real estate. Most of the time each of the fees (other than the application fee) are paid from your actual loan proceeds.
Will there be a pre-payment fee with hard money loans in West Palm Beach?
Usually hard money lenders in West Palm Beach Florida implement a 3–6 month minimum interest condition. For instance, with a 6 pre-payment penalty, if the borrower were to repay the loan in 3 months, there would be 3 additional months of interest due. This condition is put in place so the lender receives at least a modest return for the time, hassle and apportionment of its funds to your borrower. If the loan is repaid by the borrower after six months, subsequently no prepayment penalty will be issued.
How fast can a typical hard money loan close?
At Capital Funding Financial, we’re a direct lender and have the ability to close loans within a few days when given a complete loan package (credit report, income documentation, independent evaluation, title commitment). The typical deal takes about one or two weeks to finance as an independent appraisal and title report need to be run on the property.
Is an evaluation needed when applying?
Yes, hard money loans generally need comparative sales analysis, broker price opinion, or an appraisal. On the subject property, we order an unaffiliated appraisal at Capital Funding Financial.
When completing a repair & flip or rehabilitation project, what will the hard money lender require?
The lender will want to see the extent of work described with a cost analysis worksheet and timeline. The lender uses this as a guide in releasing capital for rehabilitation goals. Nothing ever goes as planned when performing a rehab; hence the lender will want to see the borrowers expertise in performing or managing real estate repairs. The lender require an inspection to be made after each draw is complete and will release funds in draws for such repairs that are listed. The lender may also require a credit report and income statement from the borrower to show that the borrower has the ability to repay the loan. Yet, hard money lenders focus chiefly on the asset value of the collateral and never the credit score.
