Many erroneously believe that the only time individuals and businesses turn to private hard money loans is when their credit score or debt-to-income are such that traditional Texas Commercial Lenders will not approve their loan application. The truth is that many real estate investors turn to these types of loans because of their quick approval and funding time. When a property comes on the market that peaks the interest of a real estate investor, you can be sure that more than one has spotted its arrival. In today’s market, it often takes quick access to capital in order to obtain the best properties for either fixing and flipping or buying and holding. While traditional funding can take over a month, a private hard money lender can get you the funds quickly, sometimes in just a few days.
For this same reason, contractors are also a common client of private hard money lenders. These asset-based loans are short-term, usually up to 24 months, and they offer draw programs for construction companies. Their interest-only payments allow companies and individuals to complete a project and sell it or obtain a traditional loan at the new after-repair value (ARV).
Home owners are drawn to bridge loans—these types of loans are provided by private hard money lenders to act as a bridge from one asset to another. If you want to purchase a home before you sell your current one, a bridge loan will give you the money you need so that you do not have to make a contingent-on-sale offer which can often mean the difference between acceptance and rejection in a seller’s market. Real estate investors use these types of Texas Commercial Loans as an alternative to obtaining an equity partner, for buying out said partner, while waiting for Texas Commercial Lending from a conventional loan to come through, or as a down payment for a build-out project.
Small businesses use private hard money loans when they are in need of immediate cash. This occurs in seasonal businesses that may need additional capital to stock up for the upcoming busy season or to keep operations going during the slow season. They also use these types of loans for purchasing needed equipment. Some startups you this type of funding due to the difficulty of obtaining a conventional loan. The self-employed fall into this group as well.
