Why Real Estate Lines of Credit in Arizona are Getting More Attention


iStock_000004067318XSmallReal estate lines of credit are growing in popularity. If you’re involved in investing, adding them to your toolkit can help ensure your success.

Generally speaking, savvy investors find out what works for them and repeat the same processes time and time again to ensure success. That said, they also create a toolkit of various options and tailor their approach depending on the project. One of the tricks of the trade seasoned investors apply is to be familiar with several forms of lending and choose the best one for each project. That way, financing and favorable terms are always just a call away.

Real Estate Lines of Credit in Arizona fit into this toolkit as well, right alongside things like conventional loans and Arizona Hard Money Loans. However, instead of taking a large portion of cash all at once, the investor uses it like a credit card, only taking what he needs as he needs it and paying back the balance. The funds made available can sometimes be enough to cover the cost of purchasing a property, though they’re generally in line with what someone might pay to do repairs or a full rehab on a property.

There are both single property and multiple property Arizona real estate lines of credit. With a single property line, the amount made available will generally be based on the value of the home. In these cases, most investors will use them to take money out to complete individual repairs. However, those with larger portfolios can have much larger lines made available, based on the value of multiple properties. In these cases, the investor may still use the funds for rehabs and repairs. However, because the cash can be tapped into at any time, many use this to purchase new properties and add to their portfolios.

When Time is of the Essence, Real Estate Lines of Credit are There for You

Being able to jump on an Arizona investment property with cash ready to go makes it easier to grab it before others do. It can also help sway a seller in your direction if there are multiple offers because they know your deal will go through and isn’t going to get hung up waiting for outside financing.

Know the eligibility requirements ahead of time to ensure approval.

Some lenders will determine eligibility largely based on credit scores, which can make it difficult to get approval. However, asset-based lending looks more at the value of the property or properties involved. In other words, if you’ve got a good amount of equity in a single property, you may be able to tap into most of it even if you have rotten credit. Moreover, conventional lenders tend to look for credit scores of 720+ once your portfolio hits a certain size, whereas asset-based lending actually rewards you for the extra equity and can often offer up more cash. Ergo, there are multiple situations and stages in your portfolio growth in which this could be ideal. If you don’t already have a specialist on hand who offers LOCs, talk with a broker who can go over all the options now, so you can have the cash you need when you need it.

Secured Real-Estate Lines of Credit: Benefits and Drawbacks


iStock_000002302749_Large (1)Looking to expand your businesses real-estate investment portfolio? Secured real estate lines of credit offer many benefits.A secured line of credit turns you into a cash buyer, and a secured real estate line of credit, you can make a full offer right away without having to wait for financing to come through. A secured line of credit can give you an edge over the competition when it comes to purchasing the best investment properties, while offering you savings over a standard term loan.

To qualify for this type of credit line, you’ll want to be a seasoned real-estate investor, whose properties are titled to an LLC or other legal business entity. Qualifying for this type of loan depends on how much income your business earns on a consistent basis and the total value of the properties currently titled to your business.



Eligibility in the case of secured real-estate lines of credit, comes down to the value of business assets and the financial strength of your business.

To get more specific about the qualifications for a secured line of credit, the sum of the loan you receive generally cannot exceed 65 percent of the value of your business’s currently held assets. In addition, your company should have a healthy balance of debt and income.

Because this is a business loan, its the financial strength of your company which counts for your lender, making your personal credit score a non-factor, which can make qualifying easier.

Secured real-estate lines of credit generally imply higher interest payments, and as with any secured loan, there is some risk to your personal property. However, if you can qualify, you could save a lot of money.

Business loans of any sort carry higher interest rates, but when compared to an unsecured line of credit, a secured line of credit generally offers lower rates, typically of 4-8 percent.However because a this line of credit is secured, your lender can confiscate whatever property you pledge should you default.

Nevertheless, applying for a secured credit line carries lower fees and little to no up-front costs. Application fees are virtually unheard of and there little in the way of underwriting costs.

But beyond the savings this type of loan offers you concerning fees, its primary benefit to you is what you could save in terms of interest. With a line of credit you only pay down and pay interest on what you spend, when compared to a conventional term loan this can result in massive savings.

In addition, secured lines of credit offer flexibility, once the loan closes you can spend the money in any way you see fit, with no restrictions on the type of property you can purchase. Compare this to a conventional loan where your lender will have to scrutinize the property you are purchasing.

Once you qualify for a secured line, your lender then gives you a lump sum which you draw from to finance individual purchases or spend as you see fit. So if your business can qualify a secured line of credit can help you rapidly expand, diversify your real-estate investment portfolio and could result in significant savings in terms of interest payments.
