Private Lending for Hard Money Loan Programs
When you need cash quickly, trying to get a traditional loan from a bank may take too long and will not guarantee funding. If you are looking for a better way to receive expeditious funding for an important project in Phoenix, a hard money loan from Summerlin Financial may be a good option for you. As a short-term loan option, hard money loans have a few significant benefits.
How Does a Hard Money Loan Differ from a Traditional Loan?
When you apply for a traditional loan, most banks and lenders scrutinize your debt-to-income ratio, credit score, and employment stability to ensure your ability to pay back your loan in full. Hard money is more often based on the value of the collateral you use to secure the loan. Therefore, your cash flow is less important because the collateral can be sold to recuperate the losses of the lender. Hard money loans tend to be short-term loans, in part due to higher interest rates than traditional loans. However, this should not be a surprise when you search for higher-risk loans that require less paperwork and have more flexible terms.
How Do Hard Money Loans Work?
The underwriting process differs from lender to lender. Most hard money lenders look at applications individually and offer funds on a case-by-case basis. The amount an applicant receives is based on a loan-to-value ratio set by the lender. For an LTV of 50%, the loan amount will be half of the value of whatever assets are used for collateral. Summerlin Financial, Inc made the process even easier with a three-step process for securing a loan.
Summerlin Financial, Inc makes it fast and simple for you to secure a hard money loan for construction, commercial projects, land and lot transactions, and fix and flip projects. Some loans may be approved and funded in as little as 24 hours with no credit check or tax information required.
