An asset-based loan is a loan based on the value of the collateral (in this case, property) and not solely on the borrower’s credit or ability to pay. Banks have many guidelines around lending that make it nearly impossible for real estate investors to borrow money for the purpose of buying and fixing properties quickly.
This loan is used to purchase a property that needs a rehab to flip/sell, or that will later be leased out and refinanced.
Single Family Rental Loans
This loan is used to refinance a single-family home up to 4 units that is already owned, rehabbed and leased.
Single Family Wrapable Loans
This loan is used to refinance a single-family home that is already owned, rehabbed and ready to sell to an owner-finance residential buyer. It will not have a due on sale clause.
This may vary but typically we loan up to 70% of the After Repair Value (ARV) of the property.
Yes. We will hold the repair amount in escrow and release the money in escrow draws as the repairs are completed.
The borrower will submit an escrow draw request, and within 24 hours, one of our loan servicing specialists will review the request. Within 48 hours after submitting the request, funding should be released. It is important to note that should a borrower submit inadequate documentation of the work to be completed, or already completed, this will delay the release of funds. Some escrow draws will require a site visit by one of our loan servicing specialists, which may also delay a draw request. A site visit can also be automatically scheduled as a result of poor documentation provided in an escrow draw request.
We don’t make any money on escrow draws. The cost of the draws support our loan servicing staff to ensure that the work is done properly and up to code.
For any of the loan products we offer we need interior and exterior pictures. Without pictures, the loan application will be delayed until we have them. MLS pictures are not acceptable, primarily because the listings on the MLS are months or years older. For Rehab/Flip loans, we also require a scope of work and the contract, assignments and amendments.
No, our lending is based on loan-to-value, not loan-to-cost ratios. This allows you to be able to finance the house 100% if you have been able to negotiate the purchase price low enough.
We can lend on the property if it follows the following conditions:
1) It is a double wide that has been converted, NOT A SINGLE.
2) The title must have been surrendered to the county.
3) The property is permanently attached to the ground.
*If the property is on septic / well system we will only lend 65% LTV.*
It depends on your loan amount. At minimum, you will have to bring the points plus closing costs to closing.
Yes, we do pull credit.
For the rehab/flip loan: We pull your credit to see which lender you will qualify for. There is no minimum, and this is solely for our purposes.
For the rental/wrapable loans: The minimum FICO score is 600 with no liens or judgments on the report.
We lend in the following states:
- South Carolina
- North Carolina
**We may not lend in certain areas or may have additional restrictions in certain areas.
The loan amount determination begins with your loan request. Our loan approval specialist will make every effort to help you receive the loan amount requested. Documentation is your best friend, a detailed scope of work (for rehab/flip loans) will assist the appraiser in determining an after-repair-value (ARV) that is the basis of our loan amount determinations. Any documentation you provide that can help us or an appraiser determine ARV is crucial.
You will receive a package, overnighted, and will include a copy of your closing packet (balloon note, deed of trust, warranty deed, HUD statement, etc.), and borrower coupons for the breakdown of your payments (payment due date, late charge information, interest amount, reserve (insurance amount), and monthly service charge).
Your payment will be due on the 1st of the month, and we accept multiple payment methods to include: Wire Transfer, ACH, FEDEX Overnight, and checks.
You should request a demand for payoff to see your total balance due. We accept cashiers check, wire, personal checks. Note: all checks are held for 7 days.
The request should be emailed to our office at firstname.lastname@example.org
Interest rate is the cost you will pay each year to borrow the money, expressed as a percentage rate. It does not reflect fees or any other charges you may have to pay for the loan.
Annual percentage rate (APR) is a broader measure of the cost to you of borrowing money, also expressed as a percentage rate. In general, the APR reflects not only the interest rate but also any points, fees and other charges that you pay to get the loan. For that reason, an APR is usually higher than the interest rate.
