Flipping homes offers many benefits to real estate investors. One of the main appeals to flipping houses is it offers investors a return within a short amount of time. Within a few months to under a year, investors locate, purchase, and renovate a property presenting a return potential. The return on investing in a flip home is large, usually close to 50% and sometimes even higher. Not bad.
But where do flippers start? Typically, investors purchase properties during a booming housing market, a time when real estate prices are on the rise. (Like right now, when flipping is at its highest since the mid-2000s.) The rising cost of homes indicates a rise in equity and an increased possibility of a good return. With this in mind, flippers tend to find distressed property in a neighborhood where renovated homes are selling well. They will do their homework and look at the “comp” or comparable sales. After locating a distressed property, flippers take into account the “perceived” renovation costs, how much will renovation cost to receive a return similar to that of other renovated houses in a given neighborhood. The trick is finding a property that would hypothetically receive a greater return for less work. Renovations could be as simple as reflooring, landscaping, and painting a few rooms. Other times, it might be necessary to delve into more complex renovations to receive a return. Either way, the main questions remain: Do the ends justify the means? Can a decent profit be made for all of the labor? If yes, “you may pass GO.”
So, a flipper has found a house, done the homework, and taken into account all of the perceived costs. Great. The next step is funding. Since many Americans don’t have too much cash to blow, funding is a very important step. To finance their projects, flippers often go to lenders, generally ones that gives loans to flip houses in Arizona.
Arizona Hard Money Lenders typically grant loans to flip houses. This is due to the fact that conventional lending is practically restrictive when it comes to loaning to real estate investors new to the business, with low credit scores, and with a history of subprime credit or past delinquencies.
For this reason, many new flippers enjoy the face-to-face, hands-free approach to hard money loans to flip houses. They find it a way to cut through the red tape of bureaucracy and start their new path of securing the returns that they need. If eligible, rates may start as low as 7.99% for terms extending from 3 to 60 months. Applications processes are short. Funding up to 90% LTV is available through certain lending programs for borrowers meeting collateral requirements.
