It is good to know what the terms are when dealing with an California hard money lender so you can find the one that will fit your needs. Here are some of the terms you can expect to see from many California hard money lenders. Typically they will only loan you up to 70% ARV (after repaired value). This means that a hard money lender can loan you up to 70% of what the home is worth in repaired condition. So if you find a home worth $45,000 in the condition it’s in, and needs $20,000 in repair work, and after it is repaired the current fair market value is worth $100,000, then typically they can lend you up to $70,000, which would cover the cost of the house and the repairs.
Other terms you can expect from hard money lenders California are high interest rates. Interest rates vary from 12% – 20% annually and terms can last for 6 months to a few years. Many times these rates vary depending on your credit score and experience. In most cases, there will be closing costs or fees to use hard money California. Typically hard money lenders will charge anywhere from 2-10 points just to use their money. One point equals one percent of the mortgage amount. So charging 1 point on a $100,000 loan would be $1000. These are all important things to consider when choosing a hard money lender California.
