Types of Hard Money Loans We Fund in Sacramento

A Bridge in Sacramento

We fund an assortment of hard money loans in the Sacramento area for all commercial and residential property types.

All hard money loans we fund must be secured by real estate and we fund a variety of loan types, including:

  • Inheritance Loans: also known as a probate loan, estate loan or trust loan, this type of loan enables heirs of an estate to tap into their inheritance while probate process is being completed.
  • Fix and Flip Loans: a short-term loan to help real estate investors cover the purchase and renovation of a property which will be sold for a profit.
  • 1031 Exchange Loans: real estate investors are under strict government rules when it comes to a 1031 exchange and therefore they often require a bridge loan to purchase a replacement property.
  • Purchase Loans: used to beat out other investors on a home with multiple offers in a competitive real estate market.
  • Cash-Out Loans: popular amongst real estate investors looking to tap into equity in their property.
  • Refinance Loans: used by property owners with an existing hard money loan that needs to be extended or by a property owner searching for a more affordable hard money loan with better terms.
  • BRRRR Loans: (Buy, Rehab, Rent, Refinance, Repeat) a BRRRR loan provides an investor with capital to purchase and upgrade a distressed property and rent it out. Once the property is stabilized the investor replaces the BRRRR loan with a traditional bank loan.

Determining Factors for Getting a Sacramento Hard Money Loan

While there are a numerous factors we consider during our underwriting process, no component is more important than the loan-to-value ratio of the collateral property.

We want the borrower to have a decent amount of skin in the game, therefore we require a minimum of 25% equity in the property.

It’s also important for a borrower to show an ability to make the monthly interest payments and for them to have a viable exit strategy to pay off the hard money loan.

The two most common exit strategies our borrowers use are either selling the property or refinancing with a long-term traditional bank loan.

While credit score and employment history are taken into consideration, they are not crucial components to securing a private money loan with us.
