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.

Also, Millenials are delaying getting married and have massive school debt, and are not buying real estate. The number of Americans renting is incredibly high, leaving a great investment opportunity in rental income properties.

  • The average family size in Santa Monica is 1.87

As many look to purchase an investment rental property, some look for a Santa Monica hard money lender to finance their real estate purchase. Unlike traditional lenders, private money lending institutions focus more upon on the equity in a property relative to the borrower’s credit score. The underwriting and funding process can take place in a matter of days instead of weeks or months. Wilshire Quinn continues to fund hard money loans in Santa Monica and across the nation.

Your Trusted Santa Monica Hard Money Lender, Lending Nationwide

I'm not one to typically write reviews but I was so impressed with Wilshire Quinn Capital's service I felt it needed to be shared. I'm a mortgage broker and I recently referred a client to Wilshire Quinn who didn't qualify for any of our programs and needed to fund quickly on a house. I spoke with Matt Mielke and he was not only able to provide a great loan for the client but funded it with time to spare! The client thanked me for connecting him with Matt and as that was the only way he could finance his dream home. It was nice to be able to refer a hard money lender that did what he said he was going to do. I highly recommend Wilshire Quinn Capital for any hard money lending.

A couple of years ago Chris Garcia and the team at Wilshire Quinn Capital were introduced to me through a good friend and business partner who has known Chris for many years. WQ has twice since then provided the ideal funding for my projects. They keep it simple. The deal terms, loan docs, appraisals and everything involved in the closing were clear, easy and fast. No headaches. The deals were fair. There have been no fine print surprises. They were prompt, clear in communications, flexible and friendly. They were patient through delays caused by me and others. I would highly recommend Wilshire Quinn to anyone.
