For our purposes, let’s say you’re going to do a real-estate flip. So, how would you go about getting a Arizona Hard Money Loan?
When you make your initial contact, you’ll want to have some key bits of information at your fingertips. You’ll need to know the location of the property, have a purchase price in mind, put together a budget for the rehab and come equipped with some idea of how much the property may appreciate. And, many hard money lenders will want to know your exit strategy.
Once you’ve gone over this info, the lender may want to get a feel for you as the borrower, especially if you’ve never partnered on a project. A lender may ask if you’ve done fix and flips before and inquire about your financial history. Thankfully, none of these things will disqualify you — private lenders have more flexibility when it comes to loaning money.
The application process can vary significantly from lender to lender but will typically involve a loan application and showing paperwork for some of the above-mentioned factors including the purchase contract and the budget for the repairs and renovation. The underwriter will usually do an appraisal on the property and ensure that the after repair value is in the same ballpark as the borrower’s estimate. In addition, they may want to check the property insurance and title history. If everything looks good, a closing will be scheduled.
At the closing, the buyer will purchase the property and sign paperwork related to the loan. Among the documents you might be asked to review, and sign include, but aren’t limited to, a personal guarantee, a security agreement, a note and an investment affidavit.
The great thing about using private money for a fix-and-flip transaction? All of this process can be completed in a matter of a week or two. By comparison, a bank loan can take up to a month or two to come through.
For first-timers, all of this can seem daunting, but compared to big financial institutions, the process is pretty straightforward. And, any hard money lender worth his or her salt will help walk you through every step and make sure you understand what’s happening.
