California’s Hard Money Lender of Choice

There are a lot of reasons that you might not be able to get a conventional loan or funding when you want to buy real property in California. At Socotra Capital, we understand that our buyers have unique needs. That’s why we specialize in providing flexible hard money financing solutions to our clients in Sacramento and the rest of California.

The hard money underwriting guidelines we use for properties and borrowers focus on overall equity instead of borrower credit. This means that we can often work with borrowers who have low credit scores or have gone through foreclosures or bankruptcies and still provide them with a hard money loan that will meet their needs. Socotra Capital is here to serve as your hard money lender when the bank says “No” or when you want to pursue an investment project that a conventional lender simply can’t handle. We provide efficient, professional service to clients in need of hard money funding throughout the greater Sacramento area and across all of California.

We know that clients who are pursuing investment projects often need fast access to cash. At Socotra Capital, we’ve created a streamlined process to provide same-day prequalification for hard money loans when possible.

Hard Money Loans for Residential Properties

For residential property buyers and investors in California, securing alternate financing might seem difficult. At Socotra Capital, we are proud to work with clients who need a hard money loan to buy an REO, bank-owned property, foreclosed home, home at auction, home at short sale, distressed property, or fix-and-flip property.

Sometimes homeowners need a little extra help to finish a remodeling or construction project. We’re proud to offer hard money bridge loans that span the gap between your available budget and what you need to finish your home. If you’re stuck with a half-completed real estate project, we can help.

For those who want to take advantage of the excellent real estate market in Sacramento and the rest of California, we offer a hard money buy-and-hold program. Under this program, borrowers can purchase income-producing residential properties using one of our customized hard money loans on terms ranging from two to 10 years with interest only to full amortization on properties that qualify and successfully complete appraisal.

For borrowers looking to flip distressed residential properties for resale in Sacramento, our short-term hard money fix-and-flip program allows you to borrow up to 75% of your total project costs, including purchase price of the property and the cost of rehab. This is one of our most popular residential hard money lending programs in Sacramento.

We offer flexible hard money loans to investors, trusts, corporations and businesses in Sacramento and all of California or Sacramento clients:

  • Up to 75% of total costs, including purchase and rehab
  • Up to 65% Loan-to-Value
