If you’re into real estate investing or just getting started, it’s important to maximize the cash you have on hand in order to make the purchase and cover any necessary repairs. Chances are, you’ll have a look around and find that there aren’t a whole lot of 100 LTV hard money lenders, meaning few offer 100% of the value of the property. Because they genuinely want you to be able to wrap up your deal and come back to them for the next one, usually around 60-70% of the property’s value is offered. In some cases, that’s just not enough to get a project off the ground. Relax. You still have options that can bump up your loan amount higher; perhaps even to the 100% mark.
1. Cross-collateralization. Let’s say you want to purchase a property worth $100,000 but only got approved for 60% of the value of the property (60% LTV), which equates to $60,000, and you know you’re going to need to sink $40,000 into it in order to do repairs, but at the end, you know it will sell for $150,000, netting you $50,000 in profit. Ultimately, that $60,000 loan isn’t going to cut it unless you’ve got $40,000 of your own cash to do the repairs with. This is where cross-collateralization comes in. You can use another asset as collateral on the loan, ultimately securing 100% of the necessary funds.
2. 100% of rehab. If you’re able to get your hands on at least some cash to cover part of the purchase price, you may be able to secure a loan that covers the full amount of your rehab expenses and up to 90% of the purchase price.
3. Negotiation. One of the benefits of going with hard money is that you can close much faster than you would with a conventional loan, which can work to your advantage if you’re negotiating with a motivated seller. Instead of trying to take out more loans, whittle that sales price down by pointing out to the seller that he’ll be free of his junky house in no time if he’s willing to work with you on price. Remember, typical loans are based on the value of the property, so if the property is worth $100,000 and you manage to get the seller down to $75,000, that’s money in the bank for you. It’s much easier to get 100% when you’re starting off with a screaming deal like this, and yes, those deals (and better) are still out there!
