Loan Guidelines

The first step in a private money loan process is to understand what options you have. We have a tiered option structure depending on what you are willing to contribute financially to the property you are purchasing. We will not loan funds to owner occupied homes or 2nd position. We only loan funds if we are 1st position lenders and you are rehabbing for resale. In some cases, we will lend to buy and hold (rental) properties but limit this to 12 months of financing and will require you to obtain conventional or other financing withing the 12 month time frame. Commercial loans are typically not for us but we will look at them under special conditions.
