This is a type of loan that is not obtained from a conventional financial institution. The expense, almost always, is slightly higher than a conventional loan. The points involved can be about 2% to 6% and are the initial compensation to the broker. The interest rates can be between 8% to 12% or more. There are a number of factors affecting the points and interest rates, such as loan duration, borrower credit, real estate type and the market fluctuations.
In the aftermath of the housing crisis in 2007-08, conventional loans came under stricter regulations. If you have good credit, proof of income, and are seeking a 30-year fixed rate loan, a conventional loan may be your best option. These types of loans are, however, under tighter underwriting restrictions and, if the loan officer cannot check all the boxes when you are applying for the loan, you may just be out of luck.
Conventional loans can be denied if you have bad credit, no income, lots of assets, or numerous liabilities. Under various circumstances, you may benefit from Arizona hard money loan. These include:
Unimproved land purchase
Your purchasing an unusual property such as a church or marina
A quick closure is required. You can often close in as little as a week
Personal assets are limited
