FL Private Commercial Refinance | Florida Mortgage Loans
There may be times when you need money sooner rather than later and the commercial banks let you down. This may be the perfect opportunity to consider hard money lending. You obtain your money fast, typically in two weeks or less, and the paperwork requirements are far less onerous than required by the banks.
Hard money can be useful when rehabbing a property to be sold immediately after, or when the rehabbed property will be refinanced later. If you have less than perfect credit but good equity in the building itself, you may be a perfect candidate for hard money investors.
If you are considering hard money for your property, there are some things to keep in mind:
- Interest rates are higher than a commercial bank because our investors are accepting a higher risk for their investment.
- Loans are typically for 1-2 years or less. Hard money is not normally considered a long-term financing option.
- Although credit rating is not considered as highly by investors as would a bank, you should be prepared to disclose it.
- Hard money loans are secured by the equity in the property so borrowers must show clear title or very little residual debt to secure a hard money loan. Hard money investors will not normally be interested in properties that are highly leveraged.
