What Are Fix and Flip Loans? 

Valor Fix and Flip loans are hard money loans used to purchase and rehab a property, and then resell it at a higher value. The Fix and Flip lending market has been quite frothy the past few months.  If you are an experienced flipper, you may notice that your old lender of choice has increased rates, decreased LTVs, and in some cases quit funding altogether. For first timers, the market has become substantially hard to break into.

No need to worry however! We have seen a resurgence in fix and flip lending in the past week and are pleased to announce we are funding in 42 states again, and multiple lenders are doing up to 90/100 (90% of purchase and 100% of rehab) with rates in the high 6’s.

These loans do not require tax returns, income/employment, or debt-to-income ratio calculations.

Why Use Hard Money?

Every well-equipped borrower’s toolbox should have a reputable hard money funding source. Although banks are usually able to offer lower rates, banks do not offer hard money loans, their loan programs don’t allow for the same flexibility hard money lenders can afford. In addition, traditional lenders have loan committees and a more involved underwriting process, and it is not unusual for both of these to delay the loan process. Hard money loans bridge borrowers from one type of financing to another. Because of this,

There are 2 main reasons to use hard money loans:

1) Speed

2) Temporary Financing Solutions. 

1) Speed: Same-as-Cash Purchasing Power One of the main reasons to use hard money loans is their speed. Hard money loans can be closed much quicker than traditional loans, offer in 1-2 weeks, sometimes quicker. Some of the best hard money lenders are able to make their underwriting decisions and issue a term sheet on the first phone call, and some are even able to fund loans in 24 hours! For those needing a quick close with minimal documentation, hard money loans are a great fit. 

2) Temporary Financing Needs Hard money loans are simpler and quicker than traditional loans, and there are two main categories of temporary financing situations in which hard money loans make sense: (1) Property needs to be stabilized; and/or (2) Borrower’s financials need to be stabilized.

(a) Value-Add / Property Stabilization / Fix-n-Flips / Construction

Hard money loans are particularly well-suited for situations in the financed property needs to undergo some kind of renovation. This can range from cosmetic upgrades to full gut rehabs and rebuilds. The issue for borrowers in these situations is that traditional lenders base their funding decisions on the current value of a property.

Hard money lenders, on the other hand, are willing to base their funding decisions (at least in part) on the future value after renovated value (“ARV”) of the property. Hard money lenders are willing to lend on the riskier, future expected revenue of a property, because they mitigate their risk with a lower LTV and charge higher rates.

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.

(b) Borrower Financials Currently Less Than Perfect

Hard money lenders are far less concerned with credit issues such as foreclosures, bankruptcies, late mortgage payments, etc., and have less stringent underwriting guidelines.

There are times when a borrower is simply unable to provide documental traditional lenders require, whether due to the nature of their business, or the fact that tax returns may not be an accurate reflection of the current financial situation.

Hard money lenders are willing to look past such credit issues where there is enough equity in the property, or a borrower has enough access to capital to make payments on the debt.

Hard money lenders typically do not want tax returns or employment/income info. If there is significant equity remaining in the property after the hard money loan is accounted for, some hard money lenders will refinance a property with nothing more than a Driver’s License, Preliminary Title Report, and a visual inspection of the property (a “drive-by appraisal”).

Fix-n-Flips, Commercial Value Adds, and Construction Loans

Fix and flips, value adds, and other distressed properties, as well as construction loans, can be difficult to finance using traditional lenders such as banks because these types of properties are inherently risky. This is a prime example of where hard money loans can be used.

Construction projects are by nature short-term, and usually, these types of hard money loans are for terms of 18-36 months. Hard money construction loans are used to cover the cost of labor and materials for the development project, and sometimes also the land acquisition.
