“Refinancing Hard Money Loans for the House Flipper”

“Refinancing Hard Money Loans for the House Flipper”


They say I understand the language. Not sure that is 100% true. But I do understand that these hard money lenders want their clients to either sell the properties they have financed or refinance out of these loans so that their money can be loaned out again and again.


House flippers all want to get paid off in 6 to 12 months, but many times that doesn’t happen and these loans need to be renewed which they really don’t want to do. But to keep the relationship it is necessary.


Depending on credit and income this isn’t always easy. Some of these folks have large amounts of dollars going through their checking accounts, but the tax returns don’t always reflect the same kind of numbers. Fortunately we have a mortgage product for these clients. There is a solution. We can do a “Bank Statement” loan and not show tax returns at all. Interest rates run between 6% and 8% which is much better than the 12% to 14% for the hard money loan.

Good morning,, Joe Petrowsky that's ideal for the investor who starts with a hard money source....and in this area, they get 14%....one of our builders is a hard money guy and loans to small builders who tanked when the market crashed.... if they stop paying, he takes the house and finishes it.. makes a larger profit!

Good morning Joe. Most are unaware of "Bank-Statement" loans and turn to hard money loans! Enjoy your day!
