Hard Money FAQ

What Is Hard Money?

What Is a Hard Money Loan?

A hard money loan, also known as a bridge loan, private money loan or gap loan, is a loan secured by a "hard asset" like commercial, industrial or residential real estate.

It is generally a short term loan (6 to 60 months) issued by private or commercial investors.

Why Use a Hard Money Loan?

A hard money loan has advantages over a traditional bank loan:

  • the approval process is much faster (5 to 7 days vs 30 days)
  • fewer requirements
  • easier to qualify
  • flexible repayment schedules
  • better option for those with low credit scores, the self employed, or with a difficult financial history, such as a foreclosure or bankruptcy
What Determines the Cost of a Hard Money Loan?
  • experience in the fix and flip industry
  • additional sources of income
  • your exit strategy from the loan
  • and most importantly, the underlying value of the hard asset
What Types of Clients Utlise This Product?

Our Lending Process

How Fast Can I Expect My Money?

From start to finish, the approval process can take as little as 5 to 7 business days.

How Do You Determine Rate?

Rates are determined by:

  • the underlying value of the asset
  • the location of the asset
  • how much the borrower is putting down
  • credit score
  • additional sources of income
  • property type
How Do You Value a Property?

We do your own analysis from recently sold comparable properties as well as have an appraiser visit the property.

What Is the Approval Process?

The approval process involves a brief phone call with Russ, to collect general background information regarding your financing needs and history.

After this pre-approval phone call your information will be verified through our underwriting process.

Once verified we will send you a term sheet and if you accept, you will receive the funds in your account.

What if My Credit Score Is Low?

While credit score is a factor, bad credit is not a deal breaker as many factors are considered:

  • experience in the fix and flip industry
  • additional sources of income
  • most importantly, the underlying value of the hard asset
