Advantages of a Private Money Loan

Whether you are looking to secure financing for a purchase, refinance, or cash-out refinance, here are some advantages to using a private money loan:

  1. Speed / Closing Time: Qualifying and being approved for a private money loan is a significantly faster process than applying for a traditional loan through a bank. Wilshire Quinn typically funds hard money loans in 5 to 7 business days.
  2. Credit score not a major factor: Asset based lending means we base our loan amounts on the value of real estate, such as an investment property, multifamily building, or commercial building, rather than strictly on a borrower’s credit score and debt to income levels.
  3. Rehab and non-stabilized property financing Properties that require substantial rehab or that have high vacancy rates often can be difficult for traditional lenders to finance. Private money lenders such as Wilshire Quinn have the ability to structure deals to allow investors to rehab and stabilize properties.

The Wilshire Quinn team did an excellent job in a short time frame. I feel their rates and ‘products’ are competitive. Where I feel they distance themselves from the competitors is their commitment to customer satisfaction. Every project has challenges and they are dedicated to working with their clients to ensure satisfaction, which is not commonplace in the market these days.

Thanks to years of experience, we can handle even the most complicated of lending scenarios, and care more about the real estate you are purchasing or refinancing than inflexible bank requirements.

FAQs – Private Money Loans

A private money loan is a real estate-backed loan where a borrower receives funds secured by equity in their property (or properties). Private money lenders like Wilshire Quinn are mainly focused on the equity in the property as opposed to borrower credit and financials. Private money loans are typically short-term ranging from 6 to 18 months.

Wilshire Quinn will consider a wide variety of property types including: office, retail centers, industrial, hotels, parking lots/structures, condo inventory, multifamily properties, non-owner-occupied single-family homes, vacation homes and rentals, primer loans and bridge loans.

Our interest rates typically range from 9% to 12%, interest-only. Lender origination points typically range from 1% to 5% of the loan amount. The borrower pays for standard closing costs (title, escrow, legal).

We will consider a wide variety of loan types including: purchase, refinance, cash-out refinance, partnership buyouts, rehabs, 1031 exchanges and value-added acquisitions.

Private money lenders like Wilshire Quinn primarily focus on a property’s equity to secure the loan. The borrower’s credit is considered, but is not a primary determinant in the underwriting process.

You can either complete our online loan application, email or call us. We would prefer to talk through your loan scenario directly, as we can determine in a matter of minutes, once we have a few simple questions answered, if we have interest.

Most of our portfolio is in California but we do have the ability to lend nationwide. We strongly prefer to lend in major-metropolitan areas.
