The Pros and Cons of Using a Commercial Hard Money Lender

If you’ve never used a commercial hard money lender before, it’s good to know some of the pros and cons involved. Here’s why it might be a great option for some investors and not the best option for others.

Hard money loans are loans that are secured with collateral, not with the borrower’s credit score or financial history, as is the case with banks. These lenders operate outside the typical regulations to which big financial institutions must adhere. This offers them several advantages over a traditional commercial bank loan:

● The Approval Process is Much Quicker. While bank loans can take 30 days to several months to come through, a commercial hard money loan can be approved and funded in days or weeks. Private investors can look over the project and make a decision; no need for complicated income verification or lengthy background checks.

● You Don’t Need Great Credit. Since the property is put up as collateral, your financial history, credit score and income aren’t as big a concern.

● Asset-Based Loans Are More Flexible. Commercial hard money lenders don’t have a one-size-fits-all approach. They can look at each transaction and judge its merits individually. This means the terms can be molded to fit the project.

● They’re Perfect for Flippers. These loans are designed to fund short-term projects with set goals, a solid budget and a completion date — all of which work perfectly with commercial flips.

The Cons of Commercial Hard Money Loans

Of course, these loans aren’t ideal for everyone. There are some drawbacks that might make them a better fit for some than others. For instance, hard money often comes with a higher interest rate than you might get at the bank. This can be anywhere from 1% to 10% more, depending on the project. In addition, the loan terms might be shorter. Whereas a bank loan could range from five years to 20 years, asset-based loans are usually in the range of three to 60 months. For flippers, this is ideal; for ultra-long-term investors, it might not be the right fit.
