Reasons to Use Hard Money Loans Arizona


Knowing when to use hard money loans Arizona is important to the success of many real estate deals that you might encounter. Selecting a hard money loan for the wrong deal can be a very expensive mistake.

There is never a one size fits all solution for your financial funding needs. It is important to understand that even though hard money loans Arizona have a great many benefits, they are only suited for certain types of deals and in certain situations. Knowing the situations that warrant a hard money loan will ensure that you are using this financial tool correctly and getting the greatest benefit from hard money loans Arizona.

Time can be a very critical factor in some real estate transactions. But funding a traditional loan can easily take 30 to 45 days if you are fortunate. But funding for a hard money loan can often times progress in just a few days. So when a great deal is very time sensitive, it makes sense to pay a slightly higher interest rate for a few months to close the deal. The borrower then has the time to follow the traditional path and apply for a loan at a lower interest rate from a traditional lender.

Having no credit makes it very difficult to secure a loan. But if you have found a great property to purchase then using hard money is a good way to secure the loan that you need to purchase the property. And just as with the time sensitive loan mentioned above, the borrower can then invest more time in finding a traditional loan at a lower interest rate.

Many consumers have experienced a great deal of financial issues in the last few years and as a result they have bad credit. Bad credit will all but eliminate the possibility of getting a traditional loan. For those folks with bad credit, hard money loans Arizona is one of the few ways that they can secure a loan. And even though the interest rate is higher than a bank loan, it is the loan that they need to make the purchase.

Hard Money Loans Are a Good Option

There are some circumstances that are beyond a borrowers control such as other potential buyers or a seller who is working on a very tight time schedule. In other cases, the borrower might have bad credit due to past mistakes or poor decisions. But regardless of the reason, when a bank is not an option, some deals can work out to be very successful when funded with hard money.

Make the Smart Choice

Having credit issues or working on a very tight schedule is no reason to pass up a great deal. Using hard money loans correctly can allow you to close a deal and eliminate the issue of time or poor credit. Then with the deal completed, you can focus on finding a more affordable means of refinancing the short term hard money loan.

How Short Term Commercial Loans Can Help Your Business Dreams Come True

Can you really take your business to the next level? You can with the help of commercial loans to help you finance the next phase of your company, and Level 4 Funding explains how.

If you need cash fast to put a down payment on a property for a new location, for example, short-term commercial loans are the perfect option. Unlike conventional bank loans that typically have five- to ten-year terms, short-terms are defined by shorter repayment schedules that are designed to be paid off in between three months to three years. Usually these loans have higher approval rates than long-term loans, and can be paid in smaller daily or weekly payments versus a monthly lump sum. Ensure you can manage the daily or weekly payments prior to agreeing on the terms of this loan.

Short-term commercial loans are great for businesses because they are typically approved a lot quicker, which means you get cash in hand quicker in comparison to a conventional lender application and approval process. New businesses can get approved for these loans, which can actually make it easier for them to get approval for long-term or more traditional loans in the future. Prior loans — and proof of paying them off — give lenders peace of mind that you can pay off a loan.

Short-terms are also easier for new businesses to get approval or for companies that haven’t yet established a business credit history. Once credit history is established with a short-term loan that is another way to help future loan approvals from traditional banks. Usually lenders specializing in shot-term loans do not require a minimum on credit score as conventional lenders typically do, especially for long-term loans.

One of the best benefits of short-term commercial loans is that their approval time is fast – which means you can get your funding fast.

With these loans, businesses can receive their cash advance in just 24 hours, give or take. This is important for many reasons as a company is looking to expand, but it can also be just the thing a business needs if they are cash-tight and need to handle payroll or pay their vendors. Fast cash is one of the reasons short terms are so desirable for new and expanding businesses that are having growing pains or “tight” times.

It’s important to know that while there are many benefits to short terms, there are some disadvantages to be aware of, too.

While these short terms are very helpful to businesses, there are some drawbacks. For example, the annual percentage rate tends to be much higher with loans like this than the APR of conventional loans because the amount of time the loanee has to pay back the loan amount is much shorter. While there are very short reschedule periods of three to six months, it might be more reasonable to negotiate a (relatively) longer payment schedule up to three years. There are also lender fees and other costs that may be associated with short terms so it’s important to know what those are before you proceed.

What it Means to Get Commercial Real Estate Loans

Do you wish you could obtain commercial real estate loans to help grow your business? Level 4 Funding explains how and why they can benefit your business.

Two confident business man shaking hands during a meeting in the office, success, dealing, greeting and partner concept.
When looking for commercial real estate loans for your company’s business — whether you have extra expenses or you want to grow and expand your business, you need to understand that it’s not like trying to obtain a mortgage for a residential home. There are a lot of intricacies and complexities associated with the commercial type, so it’s important to know what you’re getting into.
If you’re in the market to purchase property for your business or a second location, commercial real estate loans are very useful in helping you get to the next step. Having these extra funds can bring your business into a whole new level if you are looking to build, expand, open a new location or whatever your business needs are. When you apply for this type of loan, you need to know there is a long road ahead. Most traditional loans of this sort take some time for the application and approval process. You should be as prepared as possible with your business plan, financial statements or documentation. You should also be up to date with your current credit score and history. Having all this in place will give you a head start when you start drilling down into this process.
You’re also going to want to do some initial research, planning and prep to increase your chances of a successful approval of your loan. For example, did you know that loans are sometime secured by a lien on the property that you are looking to purchase? That equates to the fact that the lender has legal rights to take over ownership of your property if you aren’t able to make the payment or repayment schedule or other terms of the agreement. That’s why it’s important to read the fine print and all the clauses of the lenders’ agreement so you know what you are signing. Have a lawyer take a look at all documentation is a good idea, too, especially one that specializes in commercial real estate loans.
There are some consequences if you are not able to pay the agreed upon financial commitments outlined in the contract.
If you can’t meet the terms of your loan agreement, or if you become in breach of contract for other reasons, you could put your business in a bad position. If payments are not made to your lender, they could foreclose on your property forcing you to close your business.
There are also other costs and fees associated with commercial loans, besides a down payment and monthly payments. Make sure you are aware of all “hidden fees” before moving too far ahead.
The initial down payment required could be about 20 to 30 percent. This can seem like a hefty amount, but it also benefits you because you begin to earn equity instantly. When you apply for this type of loan, make sure you understand the commitment you are making to your lender so you can ensure you are able to cover all costs in addition to monthly repayment schedule.

Does Our Government Really Hate US? Really?

What’s wrong with our economy?

One of the technical terms used when evaluating a healthy economy is a term called velocity of capital.  What this means is how fast  money is moving around from one person to another,  or defined as “The velocity of money is the rate at which money is exchanged from one transaction to another and how much a unit of currency is used in a given period of time. Velocity of money is usually measured as a ratio of GNP to a country’s total supply of money.

 image

As you can see from the above graph the Velocity is on a steady decline.  So what causes the drop? My opinion is that there are two main reasons:

  1. People (consumers) have stopped spending money.   They are sitting on a boat load of cash and they are in a wait and see mode. 
  2. The second reason why there is a decline is that the government has put up road blocks to keep spending money.  One of the biggest road blocks enacted are the Dodd-Frank Regulations  that are making it extremely difficult for individuals to purchase homes. 

When someone purchases a home it’s not just the seller and buyer who are happy.  There are those downstream of this  closing  that are going to be happy when the home closes.  Typically the listing and selling agents are happy, but there are others who also benefit from this happiness and make a living off of the sale.  Sure the buyer is happy, they have their dream home they always wanted, and the seller is happy since the can move to their next home,  or maybe get rid of the current home.  It’s going to be a Happy, Happy, Happy fest.  The agents who listed/sold the home can’t wait till they receive the final HUD 1 is completed and the title company sends out the checks to the brokers.  Most agents keep a list of the transactions in their pipeline and like most agents, their spouse is quizzing them on the transactions.  My wife usually says, ‘got anything closing this week’?  She says this specially during the holiday season.  I’m happy to say that yes!.  This is going to be a good Christmas.  However there are many others who will benefit from this transaction and will have a happy Christmas.

  • Title company and the title agent are getting something from this transaction, like title insurance & escrow fees.
  • The loan company, Loan Officers, Loan Brokers, Underwriters, support staff, company sales rep also benefit.
  • Home Inspectors, and termite inspectors are getting some of the money.
  • Handyman who will fix the conditional items from the homeb inspection also get a piece of the deal, and don’t forget all the hardware stores will get a piece of this pie when the handyman  buys a new faucet or  other item to be fixed.
  • Tax payers benefit when home taxes are being paid in full with collections of future taxes.
  • Insurance companies are writing a new policy.
  • HOA’s are going to receive a transfer fee and maybe impact fees.
  • Neighbors are going to be happy to see a new neighbor.
  • Disabled Vets are going to receive all of the  stuff the new home owners are going to give away before they move.
  • Utility companies are going to get a change notice and if the account is past due, they are going to get paid.
  • Appraisal companies will get their piece of the pie also.

iStock_000002302749XSmallIt is amazing when you think of all the people who will touch this transaction to complete the deal at all.  BUT what’s really startling is how many people will be able to keep their job, put food on the table and survive. 

With all of this occurring, we should sell homes all the time, but I’m shocked by the road blocks our government has put in place to stop this from occurring.  In an effort to fix the last collapse of the housing industry, the administration has generated a mountain of mind numbing regulations to stop consumers from purchasing a home.  It’s like passing through  gates of hell to get a loan.  We have gone too far in the wrong direction to fix the problem.  The incoming administration has indicated that they are aware of this problem and is promising to fix the regulations ASAP.  Let’s get money flowing again!
