There’s a lot of mystery surrounding Hard Money Loans in Arizona, and for good reason — they admittedly have a spotty history after some unscrupulous lenders took advantage of borrowers in the past. Add to that the housing loan debacle and the passing of the Dodd-Frank Act, and you’ve got a lending industry that’s harder to figure out than ever before.
Before we delve into getting approved for a Hard Money Loan in Arizona, let’s look at the approval process for a typical bank loan.
● Banks will dive deep into your financial history. Any issues — like a foreclosure, short sale, or bankruptcy — will most likely be a deal breaker.
● Banks require a good credit score. Most big banks want you to have a credit score of 740 and some will go down to 700, but the interest rate will increase the closer you get to that minimum number.
● Banks want a sizeable down payment. If you want to get approved for a bank loan, you’ll be asked to have at least 20% of the value of the property on hand to use as a down payment.
The application and approval process for a Hard Money Loan in Arizona is completely different. First of all, there’s no complicated underwriting process. This means the entire thing can be completed in as little as a week or two. Secondly, and most importantly, this type of loan is secured by collateral. So, instead of condemning you for blemishes in your past or looking at arbitrary numbers, a Hard Money Lender will listen to your plans and check out the collateral you have. Finally, lenders in this field get money from private sources, so it makes it a quite simple equation — if your investment is sound and your collateral works, you can get approved.
