According to Bob Hope, “A bank is a place that will lend you money if you can prove that you don’t need it.” Investors with less than stellar credit or in need of immediate capital have found this perspective to be right on target. In addition, the type of loan will play a part in a traditional bank’s inclination to put the stamp of approval on your loan request. For instance, since 2008, traditional banks have been less prone to making small business loans and loan-to-value ratios have declined. For investors that are prone to higher-risk models, a traditional bank may not be the best choice when it comes to commercial loans.
In today’s current market, where sellers are experiencing multiple offers in a matter of days, obtaining quick capital for investment purposes has become much more important than in the days of the recovery, when properties could sit on the market for months without an offer. Multiple offers on the table will often place contingency offers to the back of the pile. Quick funding can dispel this dilemma.
So, just what types of lenders can get you the capital you need in the time frame that you need it? Hard money lenders offer short-term commercial loans that are quick to fund in order to facilitate the purchase of your next real estate investment. While traditional banks usually offer longer repayment periods at reduced interest rates, they also require excellent creditworthiness and can take a minimum of 6 months to fund. This does not take into account the length of time that it will take to prepare your business plan, financial projections, and a proposal as well as exit strategy.
Benefits of Obtaining a Hard Money Loan for you Next Investment
Unlike banks, many hard money lenders are private lenders who are not bound by the same rules and regulations that traditional lenders must abide by. They may be a group of lenders pooling their funds together or individuals that make loans on specific types of properties whether multifamily or the fix & flip segment of real estate investing. Their focus is not on your credit history, but rather on the property or collateral involved in the loan. Time to loan varies among the various private lenders.
