Have The Banks Turned You Down?

As a comparison loans by banks are typically made after evaluation of income, tax returns and other documentation (“full documentation”) and borrowers are usually required to have credit scores above a certain mark usually 700. The process can take 2 to 3 months before closing and funding. Hard Money Loans do not have as strict guidelines with regard to credit score and income and can close and be funded in a matter of days. Our hard money loans do not require a minimum credit score and we have options where borrowers can state their income. In fact if you have bad credit than the hard money lender for bad credit can be your source for financing.

Why Should You Consider A Hard Money Loan?

Firstly and most importantly, with a hard money loan you will get your funding a lot sooner (days versus months). Usually potential borrowers do not start the process until they need the loan ASAP, so this is an essential reason for seeking hard money financing.

Another reason for looking into a hard money loan would be as short term financing. For instance if you know you will get bank funding however it is going to take a couple of months to get to closing but the property purchase closing date is a lot sooner, you can get a bridge loan which will fund the purchase on the closing date and then this loan can be "paid off" with the bank financing when that comes. This way you can purchase the property with any extensions in the closing date.

Other reasons for looking at loans from hard money lenders include:

  • have been turned down by institutional lenders such as the banks, for not meeting their qualification guidelines
  • low credit score does not meet guidelines for traditional financing
  • as short term working capital
  • tax returns do not show "actual" income because of business write-offs
  • you want a "stated income" loan
  • you are a foreign national
  • your deal does not fit in a box and so on.

If you are ready to start the process and get the funding that you want, please call us now at (949) 313-7333, or you can keep shopping, but we are pretty certain that we have some of the best terms and rates around. We look forward to speaking with you soon, or if you decide to keep shopping we wish you good luck!
