Some refer to this type of loan as an acquisition line of credit. It allows you to acquire new investment properties without requiring you to pledge your personal or businesses property as collateral. Lenders secure this type of loan based on their perception of your strength as a borrower.
So qualifying for this type of loan will depend on your financial profile, be it your credit score, or the income you earn from your current investment properties. So if you can qualify for an unsecured line, it could be an excellent financing solution.
The main advantage of an unsecured line vs. a secured or equity line of credit is that your personal property is not used to secure the debt. Simply put, in the case of an unsecured line of credit, your lender cant repossesses your house should you default. Note that because this type of loan is unsecured, you need to be an exceptionally strong borrower to qualify.
However there are fewer hassles with unsecured lines of credit, and the overall process can be a lot smoother. Unsecured lines often come with little in the way of up-front fees, a sparse amount of documentation is needed, and no appraisal is necessary.
With credit lines, you only spend what you need to and you pay back only what you spend. This aspect of credit lines is a significant advantage over a term loans, where you make interest payments on the full loan amount you borrow and pay back the entire loan amount.
After you qualify for an unsecured line of credit and your loan closes, you receive a lump sum which can then draw from whenever you need. You can make multiple offers on multiple properties using the same line of credit or use the funds to cover any other expenses.
Above all, you can spend the proceeds of your credit line at your leisure, and on any property you wish to purchase. With this type of loan, you don’t need to apply for a new loan every time you want to make an offer on a property. You don’t need to wait around for your lender to scrutinize the details of your purchase, and you can make a full offer right way.
So if you can qualify an unsecured line of credit could be a great financing solution, which can help you rapidly acquire new properties while at the same time protecting your businesses assets.
