Advantages of a Hard Money Loan
Whether you are looking to secure financing for a purchase, refinance, or cash-out refinance, here are some advantages to using a hard money loan:
- Speed / Closing Time: Qualifying and being approved for a hard 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.
- 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.
- 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. Bridge lenders such as Wilshire Quinn have the ability to structure deals to allow investors to rehab and stabilize properties.
