Mi Casa, Su Casa: Rental Property Loans

You can make money purchasing homes that can be used as rental properties, giving you passive income. Arizona Hard Money Lenders give you the cash on an Arizona Rental Property Loan so you can purchase quickly

Have you ever been a renter? Have you made monthly rental payments that went into the pockets of the home owner or a rental management agency? Being a rental property owner can be a lucrative business, but how do you get your hands on that first rental property if you can’t secure a big bank loan? Big banks aren’t the only way to get investment cash to purchase a rental property. Arizona Rental property loans can also be serviced by Arizona Private Money Lenders , also known as Arizona Hard Money Lenders.

Rental property loans will allow you to scoop up investment properties quickly so you don’t have to front your own money to make the purchase. That being said, there are things that can stand in the way of you getting that funding to make the quick purchase before the perfect rental home flies off the market. You can be the majority of the way through the approval process when a big bank decides that you’re “too risky” to fund.

Big bank decisions are based on hard and fast qualification rules that can keep you from having your loan paid on day one, or the day before escrow. We service rental property loans based on your propensity for success, not for your ability to make a credit card payment on time. Here’s why Arizona Private Money Lenders are the way to go for rental property loans.

We’re investor friendly lenders

We are there to service investor loans so we understand the timeliness needed and why Arizona rental property loans need to be treated differently than traditional home loans. We won’t be shopping around for the perfect lender, we ARE the perfect lender. That cuts out time and road blocks that could keep you from getting the property you want.

We offer an alternative to traditional investments

Rental home loans enable you to diversify your wealth through non-traditional means. For some people, the security of an IRA account or 401(k) is what works best for them. But as an investor, you know that real estate, and rental properties in particular, can have far greater returns. Also, there’s potential for multiple rental properties. The strict qualifications at big banks can keep you from securing multiple loans. Alternative lenders can bypass those and help you diversify quicker and bigger.

The fact is that rental properties are always going to be necessary. Housing is a tried and true investment that you can always count on. Rental property loans will give you the opportunity to get a piece of the rental property investment pie, and we can help you get your spot at the rental property table quickly and efficiently. Your Arizona Rental Property Loan needs will be met through Level 4 Funding. Call us today to get started on your approval.

Spending Money to Make Money: Arizona Airbnb Loans

   

Earn passive income using an Arizona Airbnb loan to secure an investment property that can bring in money each month. Boost your chances of a higher monthly income with the right real estate investment and idyllic upgrades.

Gone are the days of staying in seedy roadside motels, trying to score a last minute reservation in an expensive resort, or shacking up on a friend’s couch when you travel. Arizona Airbnb Loans, also known as rental loans, have changed the way we think of travel, and for homeowners it has changed the way we think of making money using property assets which no longer have to rely on long-term leases or high tenant turnover with occupancy-caused maintenance.

What do you do if you don’t have an existing property to use? Of course you can rent out a room in your personal home, but why not rent out a whole home for more revenue and keep your privacy intact? Whole home rentals have a premium price and open up the possibilities for larger group sizes to use your property.

Types of Arizona Airbnb Loans

There are multiple ways to purchase a home to use as an Airbnb property, including the following popular options:

· Typical home loan (best if you already have the income to obtain a rental home)

· Short term rental loan (can provide the income to gain rental property without pulling out of your own pockets)

An Airbnb loan, or a rental loan, can provide year-round income for you and your family and there are ways to maximize your return on your investment property. Think outside of the box and you can be one of the go-to destinations for Arizona Airbnb guests, building your clientele and securing year-round reservations.

· Keep an eye on local trends to snatch up the business of out-of-towners. Buy in a central location to ensure you get the Waste Management Phoenix Open traffic. Consider a home in a suburb of Phoenix to capitalize on spring training visitors.

· Use excess funds to make improvements to the home that will enhance the property and demand a higher per-night price from your guests.

· Need ideas on how to improve your pad? Join Airbnb host community forums to get tips and tricks from other hosts. Find hosts in your area who can tell you if it’s worth the cash to install an outdoor spa or if you would be better off upgrading your kitchen.

The opportunities to make money in real estate are endless, but an Arizona Airbnb loan can enable you to make passive money with minimal time and effort on your part. Make an appointment with a financial planner today and start taking steps towards a stable financial future by taking advantage of a 21st century moneymaking trend. An Arizona hard money lender can help you secure the funds to get yourself on the Airbnb revenue train and setting you up for the financial security you’ve always dreamed about.

Becoming a Good House Flipper

You’ve heard all seen it all over television—buy a distressed house and turn it into a valuable piece of property. All the while turning quite the handsome profit. But, what exactly is house flipping and how can you become a house flipper?

HGTV makes it look so simple. You simply find a distressed house—which is relatively inexpensive, get a loan, put the work in and tah dah— you turn a huge profit— and become a house flipper In reality, becoming a house flipper—a successful one— isn’t quite that simple. As with any huge potential, it comes with risk. But, if you truly understand the steps, enjoy the process and put the time in you will be a success.

Last year, while I was at a convention, I met Steven. Steven had been selling real estate for about 15 years. He had done well, but hadn’t reached the financial goals he had set for himself. However, while working as a realtor, he had learned about home renovation. At that time he was working with investors that were flipping houses. He figured he would give it a shot. He found a perfect property and went straight to the bank. The problem was he had shaky credit. The bank turned him down. But, he was on a mission—and he refused to let the bank crush his brilliant idea.

THE BEST LENDERS FOR BAD CREDIT

After some research, he found that a hard money lender would work best in his situation. Although, he had never worked a deal that included a hard money lender, he gave it a go.

Hard money lenders offer loans for flippers on different terms than banks. These loans are specifically designed for people who don’t have great credit but need money to renovate a property. They are short-term loans that typically need to be repaid with one to three years and is secured by real estate. Some lenders will require a down payment, but there are lenders that will fund 100% of the property cost. Generally, at the end of the loan terms a borrower can refinance with a traditional loan if necessary.

So, Steven did his research. He spoke to agents and brokers in his profession. He found a hard money lender that would give him an 7.99% interest rate upon approval. Before speaking with the lender, he created a clear financial plan for his project. When he went to his meeting, he brought along the last 3 years of his tax returns, his 1099’s and his bank statements. Steven asked questions and the lender reassured while explaining the loan terms. He was approved in less than 24 hours and his funds were available the next week.

Hard money loans will benefit a house flipper

Generally, these loans have lower qualifications for approval. House flippers will typically be in competition with all cash buyers and they will need approval and funding quickly. Depending on the lender and the borrower available financing can be up to 100%, but more typically it is up to 90% of loan-to-value; and loan terms are shorter—usually between 1-3 years. It may not be as simple as HGTV’s Desert Flippers, but with the right lender it will be a very smooth process

The Importance of Relationships in Private Money Lending

Private money lending is all about building relationships—building your network. This involves getting to know professionals in your industry and your discussing your investment with your circle of friends and family that may be looking for an investment. Another option is a hard money loan.

Your net worth is network. If you want to raise private money you have to network. If you are in real estate you need to get to know all the professionals in your industry—this can be everyone from title companies to attorneys. Referrals are key when it comes to private money. Ask your family, your neighbors, your pediatrician. You never know who is looking for an investment.

Make sure that you are prepared. You must be ready to throw your pitch at any moment, in any place, to anyone. You must be well versed on your company overview, your experience, your goals and why an investor should trust you with their money. Creating a video that you can easily share is ideal. Everyone is visual. You can talk about it or you can show it— showing it will win every time.

SELECTING YOUR PRIVATE HARD MONEY LENDER

Finding a private lender is easy—said no one ever. Although, you will be making a pitch to potential investors, remember at the end of the day it is more important that they meet your needs. It is imperative that you ask them questions:

* What is their proposed loan term

* What is their interest rate

* Will they make their loan based on the property’s current value or the ARV

* Fees they will charge

* How quickly will you receive the funds

* What experience do they have

This information will allow you to pick the most ideal lender. It is important to be on the same page as your lender.

Although, private money lenders can be anyone from your best friend to your orthopedic surgeon you can also choose a hard money lender. Why choose a hard money lender?

Depending on your situation, a hard money lender may simplify your life. Hard money is a way to borrow without using a traditional lender or getting into business with family or an acquaintance. This is ideal when a traditional lender won’t approve a loan or when a borrower needs the funds quickly.

Loans require that you show proof you can repay. Traditional lenders will base this on your credit score, your income and your debt to income ratio. The downside of a traditional loan is even with a fantastic FICO score, a large revenue stream and a low debt to income ratio— it may take months for the funds to be released to you.

Hard money lenders use a different approach. Their lending is based on assets; that means the borrower’s collateral secures the loan. This means regardless of your credit or monthly income if push comes to shove they will get their money back by taking your assets and selling them. Yes, that sounds terrifying—however, a good hard money lender will work with you—as long as you find the right lender and build a trusting relationship. It is also possible to refinance a hard money loan into a conventional loan. The hard money loan will get your approval and funds quickly. This gives you time to work on your credit and get your revenue streams in order. Hard money loans typically are from 1 to 5 years.

There are options when it comes to private lending. What is crucial is that you work with an investor that has the same vision as you and one you can trust.

HOW TO GET A SMALL BUSINESS LOAN IN 4 EASY STEPS

Entrepreneurs usually need to finance a new business. However, clinching the funding can be quite the task. Here are 4 easy steps to get your business loan.

1. Ask yourself why you need the money? Is it for start up costs, managing daily expenses, bringing on new employees or to grow your current business? You will need to decipher the reason for your loan.

2. Find out what you qualify for. Finding out your credit score is a huge factor that will determine which loans you may be approved for—there is no sense applying for a loan that you will be denied. You can get your free credit report from Equifax, Experian and TransUnion once a year; and you can also downloads apps such as Credit Karma that will update you daily. Traditional banks want a borrowers credit above 680. In addition to your FICO score lenders will want to know how long you have been in business or if you are a start up business.

3. Gather your documents. Regardless of the lender you choose, you will need to have your documents gathered for the application process. Generally, the documents will be the same for all lenders: business and personal tax returns, business and personal bank statements, business financial statements and all legal documents (articles of incorporation, franchise agreement, etc.).

4. Determine the best lender. Once you decide the type of lender that is best for you—you will want to compare a few options based on annual percentage rate and terms. You have choices when it comes to the type of lenders; you can choose from banks, micro lenders and hard money lenders.

THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING A HARD MONEY LENDER

BANKS: A traditional bank will provide a small business loan that ranges from about $5,000 to %5 million. The average loan size is right around $370,000. You will need to prove you have collateral, good credit and you will not need the cash quickly. Getting funded takes longer than other options— typically about 6 month. The positive in a bank loan is you will receive the lowest APR option.

MICRO LENDERS: Micro lending are nonprofits that lend short-term loans in smaller amounts—typically less than $50,000. Micro lenders are lenders have more of an interest in development versus earning a profit. Their main goal is to help entrepreneurs who do not have the qualifications for a traditional bank loan. They usually provide training to teach the lenders how to run a business. Because, traditional loans are not approved easily without stellar credit and a cash reserve. A micro lender may be an avenue to explore as long as you do not mind taking required trainings and having a lender “lead” you to success—also, this funding is a smaller amount than other options.

HARD MONEY LENDERS: Hard money lenders usually do not have a required minimum FICO score. Therefore, this can suit an entrepreneur with fair or poor credit. Hard money lenders lend off of hard assets (real estate) not credit. When it comes to hard money loans. You are using your business’s commercial real estate as collateral. The loan you receive will be heavily based by the collateral you have to offer. Typically, hard money lenders are smaller lending organizations that believe in the value of taking on risky deals.

There is a small business loan for every borrower. It is important you look at your credit, your business projections, your assets and what you can realistically pay back monthly.

DO YOU WISH YOU COULD BUY AN INVESTMENT PROPERTY BUT YOUR BANK TURNED YOU DOWN?

You have searched high and low for that perfect Arizona investment property and finally you’ve found it! You get to your bank only to find out the property’s condition is not up to par with your bank’s mortgage conditions and your credit is less than attractive—no loan for you. But, there is a solution—a hard money loan.

Just like all loans, a hard money loan is money borrowed by a lender. The borrower receives the money and, in turn, the lender receives monthly interest on the loan until final payment has been issued. Where traditional loans are based off the borrower’s credit, hard money loans are based off the asset being purchased. If the borrower defaults on the loan, the hard money lender will foreclose on the property.

BENEFITS OF A HARD MONEY LOAN

There are a plethora of reasons to obtain a hard money loan; however, the quick approval and release of funds along with the relationships investors can make seem to be the most popular.

There are fewer hoops to jump through when you are working with a hard money lender. You will work with an individual lender versus a group of lenders at a bank. There is less paperwork and a shorter waiting period because the lender is more concerned with the Arizona investment property, not in your debt and credit scores. The property you are purchasing will be backing the loan. Working with a hard money lender you could easily have your funds available in as little as two days; unlike a traditional mortgage which could take months.

You can build a relationship with your investor. If you show that you are reliable; you pay your debt back on time or early, your investor will want to work with you again. Once your lender trusts you they may be willing to do things such as reduce the origination fee, get your funds to you faster or loan you greater amounts. Building trust with your lender will form a priceless business relationship.

You can get a hard money loan for virtually any type of property: from single family residential to commercial and industrial properties. Typically, borrowers use hard money lenders for fix and flips or to rehab a property. Some hard money lenders will not fund an owner-occupied residential property because of the extra regulations. However, there are plenty that will.

Is a hard money loan the right move for you?

Hard money loans are most ideal for:

* Fix and flips

* Construction loans

* Rehab properties

* A borrower who doesn’t have enough cash or access to private financing

* A borrower with bad credit

* Quick financing for an investor who is competing with a cash only investor

Hard money loans aren’t for every investor in every situation, but of you are just starting out they are an excellent choice. These loans allow you to purchase real estate with little, or none, of your own money.

How to Secure Spec Home Financing

Are you considering building your first spec home? Securing spec home financing may be easier than you assumed.

Are you considering venturing into speculative building, also known in the industry as a “spec home?” This is a home that you build before the home is sold. What makes this speculative is the fact that the home is not sold before construction, making the loan one that is considered speculative. In the Arizona construction loan industry, the spec loans are only a small portion of the loans. If your project has strong possibilities and you are willing to do more work than a conventional loan, your chances of approval stand an excellent chance.

1. Find a lot that you can improve on: A spec loan is much more speculative or riskier than other Arizona construction loans because you have no committed buyer. Your chances of getting approved increases if you locate land that needs to be improved. Raw land which does not have roads, curbs, sewer lines or water (known as infrastructure) is not as valuable as improved land and more likely be far away from urban centers and you will be less likely to find a buyer.

2. Be able to complete your project quickly: Spec home financing is short term in nature. The loan will last only as long as the construction takes. The loan is paid out in stages of completion, also known as draws. To minimize the lenders risk, and if you are new to spec building, pick projects that can be completed quickly. The interest charged is based on the amount of money that has been disbursed. At the end of the project, the borrower ether gets another loan or pays off the balance.

3. Equity is in the land: Giving a lender equity in the land will maximize your chances of getting a loan. Some lenders will require you to do this. This also could be used as the down payment or a portion or combination of the two. The loan is considered secured and the lender’s position is secured in case of default and the lender will be able to recover the monies. A lender will most likely only credit 80% of the value of your land for the down payment on your loan.

Partners in the Deal

To improve your chances of getting approved for spec home financing, you can bring partners into the deal. A partner with better credit will improve your chances of getting approved. The partner could also help with the down payment. A partner can also improve the assets when applying for the loan. You’ll also

Tell a Compelling Story. The spec loan is a loan on a dream since there is no buyer lined up. The lender is buying into your dream.

The spec loan is highly risky. You will need to sell the idea to the loan officer or the lender. The project location is very vital in securing the loan. “Sell” your idea to the lender, explain the infrastructure, why you chose the location, and the development patterns. If there is a strong presence of rental units in the area, this is a good selling point. At Level 4 Funding, we work with hundreds of private Arizona Hard Money Lenders. Call us to see if we are the brokers that can fulfill your dream and find the right investor for your spec home financing.

The Good, Bad, and the Ugly of Hard Money Loans in Arizona

For some people, a Hard Money Loans in Arizona is a fantastic option for them. This, however, is not true for everyone. The following is the way to know if these types of loans are a solution that you should pursue.

At this point, are you wondering what a Hard Money Loans in Arizona is? If you are new to the real estate investing world, you may be unfamiliar with the term. In layman’s terms, they are short term loans. The term of the loans range from one to five years. They are an alternative to conventional mortgage loans. Compared to conventional loans, Hard Money Loans in Arizona offer three main benefits to this type of funding:

1. Quicker: When you apply with a conventional lender for a loan for real estate, it is a painfully slow process. As a borrower, you will need to adhere to strict requirements. Arizona Hard Money Lenders are less concerned with meticulously verifying the borrowers every detail, but more concerned with the collateral. Since the hard money lender is more concerned with the collateral, the process moves must faster, so the borrower can jump right on the property.

2. Flexibility: Compared to the conventional lenders, Arizona Hard Money Lenders do not use the same set-in-stone process. The hard money lender is more concerned in establishing and cultivating a relationship with the investor. Each project will be evaluated on the merits of the project. When seeking funding, the hard money lender you will be speaking to is an individual as compared to conventional corporate lenders.

3. Approval is easier: Most people utilize a Hard Money Loans in Arizona to fund their real estate project. The most important factor is the collateral to Arizona Hard Money Lenders. The credit score and financial history are not important factors. If you have located a property that you need to jump on immediately, your financial situation is not a deciding factor making funding that much easier.

The Basics for Getting an Arizona Airbnb Loan

An increasing number of investors are purchasing property that they then turn around and rent via Airbnb. Find an Arizona Airbnb Loan in order to get into this lucrative investment strategy.

By 2017, the leisure industry had expanded with 25% of leisure travelers booking at least one stay at an Airbnb property. Since 2016 to 2017, stays at Airbnb properties increased 19% according to a research report from Morgan Stanley. Airbnb has over 4 million listings in 191 countries. Leisure travelers prefer to book a stay at an Airbnb property than a motel.

Entrepreneurs seeking additional income will seek to rent out a house, apartment, or some other space by listing their property on Airbnb. Estimates are that some 650,000 people list to rent their property out on Airbnb and revenues for Airbnb have topped $2.6 billion with a typical host realizing, on average, $924 a month. Some hosts are realizing enough revenue that they are able to quit their jobs. Any Airbnb host must realize that there are costs associated with hosting, some of these are the costs associated with acquiring the property you want to rent, increased taxes, paying a commission, local regulations, property insurance, and the obvious cleaning and keeping your property well stocked.

You will need capital to get started and involved with Airbnb property. The costs associated to become an Airbnb host can be varied. One of the most obvious is the property itself. If you rent your property on Airbnb for more than 14 days per year, then you will need to report the money earned. Your best bet is to talk to a tax professional before you begin to rent a property on Airbnb to realize how this will affect your personal tax situation.

Considerations Before Becoming an Airbnb Host

Take into account these considerations before becoming an Airbnb host:

· Calculate the three percent charge Airbnb places on any payment and how this fee is going to affect your profit margin.

· Calculate the supplies needed for your listing, such as sheets, towels, and other household items. Do not forget that you may have to purchase additional electronics and furniture in order to make your house “Airbnb worthy.”

· You will need to be the housekeeper for the property or hire a service to clean. This is an added expense that your will need to calculate into your profit margin.

· Lastly, you will need to research insurance. For American hosts, Airbnb provides insurance such as basic liability and property protection. This may not be sufficient to protect your property. Call your insurance agent to discuss the proper coverage for this type of situation.

You are now spending thousands of dollars before you ever book a guest. It’s best to look for Arizona Airbnb Loans with a private money lender before you spend more money than you originally anticipated.

There also are challenges for an Airbnb rental by local laws or city ordinances. Banks will not lend on properties listed on Airbnb since localities restrict the listing of your property. Banks are reluctant to lend to a business that is “illegal” due to local ordinances that prohibit the listing. Although obtaining Arizona Airbnb Loans can be challenging, you may be able to find great options to get your foot in the door. At Level 4 Funding, we work with hundreds of private investors, some of which specialize in Arizona Airbnb Loans. We may very well be able to find the right loan for your first Airbnb property.
