Hard Money Loan Florida Saint Petersburg

What is hard money loan?

A hard money loan is a loan given to a borrower from a lender based primarily on the worth of the collateralized asset that is underlying. Traditional banks and lenders focus mainly on the credit and income of the borrower where asset based lenders aka hard money lenders focus mainly on the value of the asset being used as security for the loanWhere traditional loans are usually for 1520 year terms, hard money loans are used as a short-term solution (13 years usually) as a bridge to acquire a rehab, or stabilize a commercial, retail, office, industrial, multifamily, or single family residential home.

Why exactly would a person pick a hard money loan (assetbased loan) over a conventional loan offered 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 cheaper conventional funding: (1) Quick Funding traditional banks take the absolute minimum of 45 days to fund a single family residential loan, any where between 6090 days to finance a commercial loan, and over 120 days to fund a development loan. Whereas, a hard money loan is commonly funded within 714 days. (2) Property Demands Work because of the conventional bank‘s quite conservative underwriting guidelines, most will not lend on properties needing repair. For instance, banks quite seldom fund a loan guaranteed by a property in need of repairs before it can be used; so the borrower will use a hard money lender to buy and rehabilitate the property, and then payoff the hard money loan with traditional financing. Another example would be a commercial property that has no tenants a bank won’t loan until the property is leased up. However, a personal lender will provide short term funding to the borrower to buy the property and lease it up. The hard money loan will be refinanced by a commercial lender with traditional lending once the property is stabilized for a particular time frame. (3) Not based exclusively on credit or income Traditional banks rely heavily on a borrower’s credit score, previous income, and ability to repay the debt. Thus even quality borrowers including doctors, lawyers, and solicitors who’ve high incomes but also have a lot of debt are turned down by traditional banks for conventional funding. Hence, there is certainly an enormous importance of private lenders who look the value of the underlying asset compared to the amount of the loan versus the borrower’s credit history. At Capital Funding Financial, we base our capital decision mostly on the LTV (loan to value). We normally look for a 50% 65% LTV in our loans. What that means is we normally lend out 65% 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 determined by looking at a combination of factors such as: (1) loan to value ratio, (2) borrower’s credit score & income, (3) the property state and location, (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 8.9%*

What are the fees involved in asset based lending?

Most hard money lenders in Saint Petersburg charge a loan origination fee of 3% to 5% of the amount of the loan. Various fees for file preparation will subsequently charge by a lawyer, an application fee, appraisal fee from an independent appraiser, and financing processing fee. Capital Funding Financial costs an incredibly low origination fee of only 2%* and offers straight forward provisions without each of the junk fees that are hidden

Can the loan fees be paid from your loan proceeds?

Yes there is a big enough equity cushion in the real estate. Most of the time all of the fees (other than the application fee) are paid from your actual loan proceeds.

Can there be a prepayment fee with hard money loans?

Typically Saint Petersburg hard money loans have a 36 month minimum interest prerequisite. By way of example, with a 6 prepayment penalty, if the borrower were to repay the loan in 3 months, there would be 3 extra months of interest due. This requirement is put in place so the lender receives a small return for the time, hassle and apportionment of its funds to a borrower. If the loan is repaid by the borrower after six months, subsequently no pre payment fee will be issued.

How quickly 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 days when given a complete loan package (credit report, income documentation, independent assessment, title commitment). The typical deal takes about one to two weeks to fund 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 an assessment, broker price opinion, or comparative sales analysis. We order an independent appraisal on the subject property.

When completing a fix & flip or rehabilitation project, what will the hard money lender require?

Well besides the obvious 3540% equity cushion, the lender will need to see the scope of work described with a cost analysis timeline and worksheet. The lender will use this as helpful information in releasing resources for rehab purposes. Nothing ever goes as planned when performing a rehabilitation; thus the lender will want to find the borrowers experience in managing or performing property 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 will even require income statement and a credit report from the borrower to show that the borrower has the ability to repay the loan. However, hard money lenders focus chiefly on the asset value of the collateral and never the credit score.
