CALIFORNIA JUMBO LOANS

If you have heard of “jumbo loans,” you might be wondering what exactly is a jumbo loan? Whereas traditional mortgage loans have limits per county, jumbo loans can greatly exceed the county limits. Jumbo loans are a powerful tool for high-net-worth individuals and/or well-qualified borrowers to obtain alternative financing where traditional lenders say “no,” by qualifying based on credit, income, and assets.

STATED INCOME LOANS

If you’ve heard of “bank statement loans,” you might be wondering what exactly is a bank statement loan? Whereas traditional mortgage loans require tax returns during the loan approval process, bank statement loans do not. Self-employed individuals and business owners, whose tax returns often do not accurately portray their financial picture can use a bank statement loans.

HARD MONEY LOANS

Hard money loans are an alternative to traditional bank lending that allows flexibility and expediency. Hard money lenders and hard money loans are not required to conform to the same guidelines as traditional financing, such as the standardized Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac underwriting guidelines for loans to be repackaged and sold on Wall Street. Put simply, a hard money loan is a loan that is secured by a “hard” asset – i.e., real property.

FIX AND FLIP LOANS

Fix-n-flips are a classic situation in which a hard money loan makes financial sense. In these situations, the loan is based on the after-renovated value. Once the property is finished being rehabbed, and realizes its full income-producing capacity (“stabilized”), the hard money loan can be paid off in 1 of 2 ways: sell the property, or refinance with a traditional lender now that the as-is value supports the loan.

RENTAL PROPERTY LOANS

Sometimes called “Investment property loans” or “rental loans,” no tax return investment property loans do not consider a borrower’s income in the traditional sense. The “cash flow” is just the monthly rental amount the property brings in. For example, a property renting for $2,000/month would be attributed a qualifying income of $2,000/month. The main requirement for these investment property loans is that the monthly rents cover the monthly expenses.
