When is a hard money loan appropriate

There are a variety of situations that might cause an individual, corporation, or estate in Riverside to work with a hard money lender.  Some examples of when a hard money loan might be the right solution include:

  1. You are buying Riverside residential or commercial real estate for investment purposes to take advantage of the market.
  2. The property is an REO, a foreclosure, or a short sale and does not qualify for an FHA or other conventional financing.
  3. You want leverage for both the purchase and the rehab of the project or property, which we lend up to 75% of those two numbers.
  4. If you own a property free and clear or have equity but you cannot get additional money out, the loan is due, or the line of credit is no longer available.
  5. Your loan is no longer compliant such as an SBA loan parameter you no longer meet.
  6. Your credit score or income is not high enough to qualify for a traditional loan.
  7. You need funds more quickly than it takes with a conventional loan.
  8. The real estate in question does not qualify for an FHA or other conventional loan because it requires renovation or repair.
  9. Your cash needs are short term.
  10. If you come up short or made an offer ALL CASH, use our HARD MONEY – WE ARE AS GOOD AS CASH.

If you are a real estate investor in Riverside taking advantage of this great buying opportunity, you’ll likely use hard money loans to secure the financing you need since most offers will be either ALL CASH or need to close too quickly for conventional financing.  The cost of a hard money loan with Socotra Capital is a fraction of the profit made when buying correctly.  Our underwriting and review process ensure you are successful.

As a hard money lender, it’s our job to get you the financing you need so you can focus on the success and health of your business, family or anything else that has affected your life that you need money for.   We are often times the only solution and we want to help.
