Real Estate Financing and Texas Commercial Loan Options

1page_img3-bigObtaining that first Texas Commercial Loan is one of the major stumbling blocks that keeps want-to-be real estate investors from turning their dream into a reality. There are options and one may be just the right one for your needs.

If lack of funds is holding you back from making your move into real estate investing, don’t let it. Very few investors make all cash offers or have the 20 to 35 percent down and high credit scores that some conventional lenders require. These lenders are often banks or credit unions and, while a good option for those that are approved, they do take time to fund—at least a month in many instances. There are alternatives.

Participating Mortgage or Joint Equity mortgages offer alternatives to traditional lending. In a participating mortgage, the lender is offered a percentage of the resale proceeds if the investment is a fix and flip model, or they are provided with a share of the rental income if the property is a buy and hold. In a joint or shared equity mortgage, both lender and real estate investor agree to share capital, risks and rewards. These individuals or groups come together for one project, which is what makes it different from a partnership. Investors often use this strategy when they are looking for knowledge and experience as well as funds. Like any partnership, it’s important to make sure that the two of you hold the same values and vision.

Crowdfunding has become a growing avenue for obtaining Texas Commercial Loans for real estate projects. Equity investors hold a stake in the property while debt crowdfunding, also known as peer-to-peer, investors are paid back in regular monthly installments with interest over a period of time, usually three to five years. Both are funded by numerous individual investors, some of whom may make an investment with as little as $1,000. This type of lending usually requires strong credit scores and solid business plans.

Private Hard Money Lending

Private hard money lenders offer asset-based loans that are typically short-term in nature and provide access to quick capital. Terms are anywhere from 3 to 60 months. Credit scores and creditworthiness is typically not as an important factor as it is with other types of Texas Commercial Loans . The loan is based on the property that you are using as collateral, whether the investment property or your current home. As well as a budget and plan, most private hard money lenders require a good exit strategy which will let them know how they will get back their money at the end of the build-out or renovation. An exit strategy for a fix-and-flip property is typically when the home or property resells while, for a buy and hold investor, it may be when they obtain a traditional loan after the property has been repaired and rehabbed.

A private hard money lender provides asset-based Texas Commercial Loans . Credit scores are, typically, not as important to funding as is the collateral.
