Owner Occupied Hard Money Lenders


536349311You may be surprised to find out that owner-occupied hard money lenders offer loans for primary residences. Find out the specific situations where you can benefit from these types of loans.

Are you in a circumstance where you are being denied a residential mortgage?  There are many circumstances when a borrower is denied this type of mortgage from both credit unions and banks.  When the person seeking a loan has little or no alternatives, they will often turn to a residential hard money lender to obtain a mortgage on the borrower’s primary residence.  Some of the reasons a borrower may turn to this type of lender are:

  • The borrower has bad or poor credit

  • If the borrower has had a recent loan modification, foreclosure, short sale or bankruptcy

  • If the borrower has two years or less of current employment

  • If the borrower is self-employed

  • A bridge loan is needed by the borrower for a primary residence

In some instances, a borrower goes through the approval process with a conventional residential mortgage lender, and the lender is not able to perform while in escrow. The borrower then searches for a private owner-occupied hard money lender to secure financing through. The lender is able to provide fast approval and funding which will help prevent the borrower from losing the property they have a contract on. Once the escrow closes, the property is secured, and the borrower can refinance with a conventional mortgage company.

Why Arizona Owner-Occupied Hard Money Lenders are Few and Far Between

Most owner-occupied hard money lenders will not consider lending for your primary residences because:

  • Additional documentation is required

  • The lender is required to obtain additional licensing

  • Regulators will exert firmer regulations

  • The time to fund the loan increases since there are mandatory recession periods

  • Investment loans have far greater lender risks than owner occupied mortgages

Arizona Owner-occupied hard money lenders are subject to Federal regulations.  Some of these regulations consider Dodd-Frank.  The Dodd-Frank act requires the lender to verify the borrower’s income and expenses.  Paystubs, tax returns and W2’s are ways the borrower can verify their income. Debt to income (DTI) must be kept under certain levels by the borrowers.  Car payments, other mortgages, credit card payments and other debts will be considered. Also included in this ratio will be the new mortgage obligations, (taxes, mortgage payment and insurance).

The owner-occupied Arizona hard money loans are intended for short term use, generally three to five years.  Most lenders will require the borrower to have a plan in place to obtain long term financing.

A hard money loan can offer borrowers with credit issues time to repair their credit report—and not lose their chosen property. Others may be postponing obtaining a conventional loan until the mandatory waiting period for negative credit events has passed. These events may include short sale, bankruptcy, loan modification or foreclosure. If the borrower’s property has enough equity and there currently is a first (1st) mortgage and the borrower does not qualify for a conventional second (2nd) mortgage, then the borrower can consider a hard money lender.  This may be a prudent decision if the proceeds of the second mortgage is used to pay off high interest rate credit cards or pay down other high interest debt.

A Borrower’s Guide to Arizona Business Loans


4page_img5-bigThere are several different types of loans suitable for businesses. Make sure you know the difference between each one before choosing your next Arizona business loans.

If you are running a business, you may find yourself in need of working capital, new equipment, or additional inventory.  A business loan specifically for one of these needs may be your best bet when it comes to continued success or hanging in there during the slow season. There are an assortment of Arizona business loans to choose from including bank loans, mezzanine financing, asset-based financing, invoice financing, microloans, business cash advances and cash flow loans.

  • Bank loan: Just as the name indicates, the originator of this type of loan is a bank.  The loan may or may not be a secured loan. A secured loan requires approved collateral.  If payments are not made, then the collateral will be kept and usually sold. An unsecured loan is, just as the name states, one in which there is no requirement to pledge collateral to obtain the loan.  Before making an unsecured loan, a bank may want to see the borrower’s business accounts, balance sheet and business plan, the principal’s background, and credit histories.

  • SBA Loans: The Small Business Administration is a government agency that offers guaranteed backed loans through your local bank.  The SBA (a) includes both a standard and express loan approval process.

  • Mezzanine finance: Mezzanine financing effectively secures a company’s debt on its equity, allowing the lender to claim part-ownership if the loan is not paid back in full and on time.  The loan is made with collateral. Dilution of the debtor’s equity occurs in a default situation.

  • Asset-Based Finance: If you are lacking the credit rating or track record to qualify, this type of financing has become a very popular choice.  The lender focuses on the borrower’s assets instead of their credit rating. Various assets are considered including the premises, plant, stock, or receivables.

  • Invoice Finance (factoring): An alternative to conventional financing, this type of lending requires the borrowing at a discounted amount of the invoices.  Once established, you will be able to obtain funds as soon as a new invoice is created. This may not be the best option for your business.  There may be a negative view by customers, and the lender will take ownership over the businesses’ invoices until the loan is paid.

  • Microloans: These Arizona business loans are for amounts of $100,000 or less.  Alternative lenders are more likely to make these types of loans than traditional banks.  If the traditional bank makes this type of loan, it is made based on the individual personal credit score than the business credit score.

Checking out Online Lenders

A number of online lenders have begun popping up on the World-Wide-Web.  Since 2014, $12 billion dollars have been made. Since 2000, non-bank online lenders have doubled their outstanding portfolio balance each year. Another option is crowdfunding—an option that allows businesses to raise capital from a wide variety of sources.

Personal guarantees are usually required if you own a certain percentage of the business.

If you are an owner of 20% or more of a business, most lenders will require a personal guarantee.  This allows the lender to collect on a Arizona business loan in the event of a default.  In most cases, as a personal guarantor, you will need a strong personal credit score.

Things to Consider When Obtaining Hard Money Loans


Arizona-Home-Loan-Team-Matt-and-Judy-Callahan-150x150 Are you wondering what Arizona hard money loans are and where they fit into your investment strategy? Here are the basics of these types of loans and what they can do for you as an investor.

This type of loan is an asset-based loan.  The borrower wishes to secure a loan backed by real property.  Private investors and companies are typical issuers of these loans.  Unlike banks, Arizona hard money loans can carry higher interest rates.  These interest rates are higher than a convention real estate loan because of the higher risk and the duration of the loan which is shorter than conventional real estate loans.

People using Arizona hard money loans are usually looking for funding for projects lasting from a few months to a few years.  The criteria for lending and borrower costs are similar to bridge loans. In fact, many hard money lenders specialize in bridge loans. Bridge loans are used for properties that are in transition and may not be able to qualify for traditional financing.  An example of a bridge loan is when a home buyer finds a new home they’d like to buy before their old home, which is on the market, sells.

Many hard money lenders will lend 65% to 75% of the current property value. The amount of the loan is determined by the loan to value or LTV. It is figured by the ratio of the loan amount divided by the value of the property. Arizona hard money loans are mainly used for commercial property.  These types of loans first started in the 1950s and have been growing in popularity.

Although mostly unregulated by state and federal laws, some restrictions on interest rates by states, commonly known as usury laws, prohibit hard money loans. Two of these states are Tennessee and Arkansas.

Federal Guidelines

Since the 2009 mortgage crisis and the passing of the Dodd-Frank Act, these loan programs have greatly expanded.  This is in part due to the strict regulations that were put on banks and lenders after the passing of this act. Truth in Lending and Dodd-Frank set out Federal guidelines for lenders, mortgage originators, and mortgage brokers requiring them to evaluate the borrower’s ability to repay the loan.  The ability to repay the loan is on the borrower’s primary residences. If the lender does not conduct the proper due diligence, they are faced with high fines for non-compliance. Hard money lenders mostly lend on commercial loans or business purposes so that they can avoid non-compliance with TILA, HOEPA and Dodd-Frank guidelines.

Before any offer of financing, the lender will want to determine the LTV (loan to value).  The basis for the loan is the liquidation value of the collateral.

A BPO (Broker Price Opinion) or an independent appraisal by a licensed appraiser in the state that the property is located in, will value the property. Typical hard money loan interest rates range from 10% to 18%.  Despite these rates, investors often turn to them due to quick loan approvals, high flexibility, less documentation than conventional lenders, and offering the ability to put a bid on a property that may go quickly after hitting the market.

What You Need to Know If You Are New to Investment Property Financing


2page_img3If you think that obtaining investment property financing will be as easy as getting your home mortgage, think again. Prepare for funding your first investment property with these tips.

The default rates for borrowers on investment property loans is higher than home mortgages. Because of this, lenders require higher down payments and rely on strict underwriting for Arizona Investment property financing.  This means that, if you’re purchasing an investment property, be prepared to put down at least 20 percent of the purchase price.  There are, however, exceptions and percentage rates are often based on the type of property. For instance, anywhere from 25 to 40 percent may be required for multi-unit properties.

The advantage of a commercial loan is that the borrower is not required to carry mortgage insurance.  Conventional loan programs allow 80% LTV and, for investment properties, this is a best-case scenario.  You will also want to explore crowdfunding websites for real estate. While these tend to be more expensive, they are often more flexible than conventional loans. Before entering into an investment property, you should have at least three months payments as reserves.

Both interest rates and upfront lender fees are higher than conventional mortgage lenders.  Lenders advertise that their rates will be 0.25% to 0.5% higher than their homeowner loans. You should expect 1 to 3% points higher than owner occupied loan rates. If the lender charges 4% interest for their homeowner loans, you can guestimate an interest rate of 5%-7% for investor loans.

In addition to the interest rates, you will be charged up front points for a mortgage loan.  One-point equals one percent of the total amount of the loan. You can see how these fees add up quickly. Make sure you have reviewed your credit report and credit score. If your credit score is below 740, you will have higher interest rates, higher lender fees, and lower LTVs for your investment property.  If you have a mid-level score, then a conventional loan may not be an option. However, the collectable (property) is reviewed more than you as a borrower. As we mentioned earlier, homeowners are far less likely to default than investors. Lenders have built in loan programs with lower LTVs as caution to default.

The Effects of Multiple Mortgages on Investment Property Financing

If you are carrying multiple mortgages on your credit report, your options are dwindling.  Once you hit the threshold of four mortgages on your credit report, you may be untouchable by conventional lenders.  Fannie May has established a program to help investors that allows 5 to 10 mortgages. Fannie May’s program requires 6 months payments in liquid reserves at the time of settlement.  The program requires 30% down for 2 to 4 units and 25% down for single family homes. You are persona non-grata if there are any foreclosures or bankruptcies or late mortgage payments.  You will need a credit score no less than 720+ if you have 6 or more mortgages.

If you have 10 or more properties, you have slim options.  A good starting place is community banks. Blanket loans issued by commercial lenders are secured against multiple properties.  Be sure to ask what happens if you want to sell a property in the package.

Hard money lenders are an option that many investors turn to.

Triple Your Property Value With Arizona Investment Property Financing


825082878Investing in the right loaning opportunities when it comes to property can dramatically grow the value of your property. Learn how to exponentially create your earnings by choosing the correct lending opportunities to grow your assets and secure a bright financial future for your business or company.

If you are trying to increase the value of your business or company and grow your assets, Arizona Investment Property Financing may be the perfect solution for you and your company. Investing in your business or company through the acquisition of loans can give your business the added capital or funds needed in  order to go after new business ventures. In fact, Arizona Investment Property Financing can even added to your property value substantially.

What could you do with an investment property loan? If you are attempting to invest in real estate, this could be an excellent step in the right direction. These helpful tips can be a good way to get started and begin to triple the value of your assets or properties.

1. Make a down payment that is as large as you can afford. Qualifying for the best interest rates is only possible when you are able to put a substantial down payment on your potential investment properties. If you don’t currently have the funds to make a large down payment, you may want to wait to invest or opt to acquire a second mortgage. Speaking to an experience broker may help you find the best choice for your particular financial situation and budget.

2. Big banks may not be the right way to go. Choosing local businesses or a local lending opportunity may be a better choice than choosing a larger bank. Typically, a smaller bank will have more financing options and more flexibility in their requirements for financing. This means that when investing it may be best to stick to local lenders rather than seeking the help of larger banks or lenders.

3. Think outside of the box. Don’t be afraid to get creative. You may opt to borrow from a person rather than an organization such as a bank. Private lenders can be a good way to find a particular lending agreement that suits your budgets and your needs. Similarly to local banks or smaller banks, a private lender may have more flexibility and able to work with you to accommodate a specific budget or financial limitations.

How Do I Know Which Properties to Invest In?

Arizona Investment Property Financing may seem like an intimidating process for beginner investors or new entrepreneurs.  However, with careful planning and strategy, investing in property can be a successful tool for growing your assets and developing your business or company.

Finding the best investment opportunities is a gradual process but with time can be the perfect tool for you to achieve your business dreams and goals.

Whether you are new to the real estate world or are a more experienced investor, hopefully this guide gave you some insight on the world of investing and finding the best opportunities for you and your needs.
