FLORIDA HARD MONEY EQUITY/BRIDGE LOANS
Our investor network is looking for opportunities to invest in Florida commercial loans based on free and clear equity in commercial properties including:
- Apartment buildings
- Office buildings
The property should have little or no current mortgage, and a new mortgage is secured by the equity in the commercial property. Our investors don’t have the onerous paperwork requirements required by the banks and will overlook a lot of credit issues when a free and clear property is available. Typically the loan-to-value (LTV) ratio available runs 50-55% depending on the property. Closing will occur in 10-21 days after paperwork is received. This is the easiest way for investors to obtain a commercial hard money loan.
ALT-A OR SUBPRIME FLORIDA LOAN
Subprime commercial loans are also secured by real estate equity. Borrowers may have credit scores from perhaps 550 up to 650 but have been turned down by the banks. Many of our clients are self-employed with good income. Our investors are looking for borrowers who:
- Good income with no more than 50% debt-to-income ratio
- Good tax returns
- Strong bank statements with active rental income if the property has rentals
- The borrower can provide a 40% down payment
BANK STATEMENT HARD MONEY LOANS
These are commercial loans based on 12-24 months of personal and business bank statements. LTV ratios of up to 55% are normal. These loans are similar to subprime loans, with the borrower having reasonable credit but who is unable to show good income on their commercial properties. Closing times are typically within 21 days.
FOREIGN COMMERCIAL FLORIDA LOANS
Foreign nationals can have a difficult time securing financing in Florida for commercial properties. Our investors will use the borrower’s collateral and finance up to 50% LTV for a commercial refinance or purchase contract. Income statements will be required to secure the loan. Closing is typically within 14 days.
BANK CONFORMING COMMERCIAL LOANS
Shop Commercial Mortgage does have bank conforming loans available. These are based on a first mortgage on the property. This program offers the best loans with LTVs up to 75% and interest rates starting at 6% for terms of 1/3/5/7 years. Closing can take up to 40 days as this is the most comprehensive underwriting required for approval.
The requirements for borrowers to be accepted for
- Credit scores above 700
- Tax records for the last few years
- Rent rolls
- Personal and business bank statements
- Profit and loss statements for 2-3 years
