What is a Hard Money Loan?
A hard money loan is a short-term loan also known as a bridge loan, that is used until a person or company either secures permanent financing or removes the obligation through the sale of the property. Hard money loans generally have higher interest rates than conventional or bank loans, and are written for shorter periods of time. Typical hard money loans or bridge loans are 12 to 18 months in length. Wilshire Quinn loans do not exceed 60% of the appraised value of the property securing the loan.

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

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

Our interest rates typically range from 8.5% to 10.5%, 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).
