The Best Place to get loans for Airbnb businesses in Arizona?

p1_img2 Short-term vacation rentals are now a viable source of income thanks to platforms like Airbnb. You may want to take advantage of this opportunity, but what’s the best source of loans for AirBnB businesses?

In the past, it was challenging to secure consistent short-term rental income.

Vacation rentals were advertised through newspapers and other forms of advertising with limited reach.  How could Joe and Sally from Minnesota find out about a beachfront property available to rent on the coast of California?  Well, they really couldn’t. In the 21st century, things are different. Finding a regular stream Joe’s and Sally’s to lay do   wn several thousand dollars a week to stay in a beachfront home is now possible thanks to platforms like Airbnb. Depending on your locale, owning a vacation rental property could pay for half or more of your outstanding mortgage.

However, you may not have the funds on hand to purchase a vacation property outright, and unfortunately, traditional bank bureaucracy hasn’t quite come into the 21st century.

Getting an Arizona Airbnb loans can be difficult, bank regulations and FHA guidelines hamstring conventional lenders

A beachfront condo has just come onto the market. You know for a fact the best strategy here would be to rent it out on a short-term basis. So you go to your friendly neighborhood bank. It’s all smiles until the loan officer asks ” how do you intend to pay for the second mortgage?”

You explain that you intend to make money by renting out the property during tourist season.  The loan officer reviews his checklist, ” short-term rental hmmm, I’m sorry, we can account for that type of income.”

Essentially brick-and-mortar lenders haven’t caught up to the opportunity offered by platforms like Airbnb. Traditional lenders are for the most part unwilling to underwrite loans based on short-term rental income, which means the vacation property you intend to finance will be grossly undervalued. In most cases usually only the best borrowers can qualify.

Say you’ve found a dilapidated beachfront property, in a popular hip location. Prices in the area are prohibitive, and this busted up cabin is your only way to get in on the action. You know once the property is up to a livable standard, you could charge 500 bucks a night to rent it out. But, don’t even bother with a regular bank if a property is anything less than livable. Your deal will not close due to FHA guidelines.

If a distressed, but steeply discounted property, comes onto the market in an extremely lucrative area, conventional lenders, unable to resell your loan to Fannie and Freddie, are going to reject your application out of hand.

Private money can be the help you need to get an Arizona Airbnb loan.

In such situations, a private money provider is your best bet.  This type of lender can consider the short-term income potential of the property you want to finance because private lenders set their own rules when it comes to underwriting. Private lenders are also not beholden to FHA guidelines.

With a private lender on board, that condo is yours, even if you have an outstanding mortgage or less than perfect credit. With a private lender, you can transform that run down cabin into a gem. Airbnb will then be sending you a stream of Joe’s and Sallies who will pay you thousands of dollars a week for the privilege of staying in your refurbished vacation home.

So when it comes to vacation rentals, skip the bank and approach a private money provider first.

No Money Down Arizona Fix and Flip Loans: Advice for New Investors

If you are new to be flipping business, you may have heard the prospect of no money down Arizona Fix and Flip Loans. You may be thinking “hmmm,  I can get into the flipping business without spending any of my own money, well sign me up!” 

You can use three methods to pay nothing out of pocket for your next flipping project, wholesaling, private money and hard money.

Let’s talk about wholesaling first. The Easiest way to explain the process is you sell the option to purchase the house to another investor. You don’t spend any money; you secure a purchase contract with a buyer  and before the date on the purchase contract comes around you sell off the option to purchase the home to another investor.

Wholesaling is not a good option for someone who is new to the rehab business.  A good wholesaler knows how to find the most attractive houses to flip, can compete with full cash offers to secure a bid and above all, they are in contact with a network of other real estate investors who are willing and eager to purchase their contracts.

As a new investor, it is doubtful you have any of these qualities. So what are your other no-money-down financing options?

Few new house flippers can qualify for no-money-down Arizona Fix and Flip Loans from private investors.

The situation with private money involves you seeking out a cash buyer to finance the full cost of your flipping project upfront. In this situation, you have to prove your value to an investor, and have an answer for him when he asks “why should I pay for the full cost of your project?” The investor needs believe that you can carry out the work,  and all he has to do is sit back and let the money roll in.

However, if you’re new to the flipping business, you don’t have the requisite demonstrable proven track record when it comes to rehabbing distressed properties. Given this lack of experience, you probably wont get an investor on board. What are your options when it comes to getting no money down financing, for your first flip?

Hard money can be a route for new investors to get no money down Arizona Fix and Flip Loans but carefully consider the risks.

If you have enough collateral on offer, even if you’re new to the flipping business you can still get a zero down hard money deal.

A hard money provider is a lender who offers you a loan based on the value of your collateral.  You need to find a hard money provider who is “creative,” when it comes to collateral. If you pledge enough of your assets, some hard money providers might not require you to make a down payment. To truly pay nothing out of pocket, you also need to find a lender who is willing to defer the payment of fees until your project resells. But, are you willing to pledge your primary residence,  401(k) or any other assets to avoid out of pocket expenses?

You need to consider this question carefully. If you are new to the flipping business, it might be better to make a steep down payment than to risk losing your house. The more experience you get with house flips, the more financing options you’ll have. You can get into wholesaling, partner with other investors and you’ll have a bit more confidence to get a no-money-down hard money loan.

Hard Money Arizona business loans: A Tale of Two Businesses

iStock_000002302749_Large (1)When it comes to Arizona hard money loans you take out for your business, consider carefully, whatever your pledging.

Sally Jones lives in a beautiful picturesque tourist town, where she owns and operates a restaurant.  Then the especially ponderous local city council demands Sally make some extensive cosmetic changes to the exterior of her restaurant, “to preserve the historic character” of the neighborhood they say. If she doesn’t make these changes, she will have to shutter her business right in the midst of peak tourist season.

She needs money yesterday. She’s heard about hard money does a quick cursory search online,  to find a “hard money provider,” and the one she finds offers her a merchant cash advance instead.  She doesn’t think much of it, applies, and the money quickly comes in. She makes the necessary cosmetic changes. Business goes well extremely well during tourist season.

However, the loan she took out was paid back with 40% of all her profits.  She breathes a sigh of relief ‘at least the loan is paid off,’ she tells herself. But her margins are razor thin, and she has absolutely nothing in savings.

Should be okay right?  Well, then the city council demands that the siding on her restaurant isn’t the right color and she’ll have to change it. With absolutely nothing in savings, Sally has to take out another MCA loan to resolve the issue.

When it comes to hard money Arizona business loans, real hard money providers don’t use your income to secure their loans.

Across the street, Ralph was under similar threat from the city council.  He too needs fast money, he goes online and finds a hard money provider. His lender asks him to pledge his restaurant as collateral for the loan, and he’s a bit nervous about the interest payments.  Nevertheless, he goes ahead and makes the necessary changes. All the extra income he earns throughout tourist season, allows him to pay back the loan he took out and also enables him to save up the additional revenue.

So when the Birkenstock wearing, tofu munching city council demands that he also needs to change the color of the siding on his building he has some extra money on hand and he doesn’t need to take out another loan.

Risk less by seeking out real Arizona Hard Money Lenders.

The moral of this story is don’t put your businesses long-term income on the line to fix a short-term problem.  A real hard money deal allows you to leverage the equity you have your business’ real property as collateral. Yes, there’s some risk  and you’ll want to carefully consider whether or not you can pay back the loan. However, if the prospect of quickly paying back the loan is in sight than this type of deal offers little to no danger.

However some there are hard money providers online, that are merchant cash advance lenders.  These loans are especially dangerous as seen in the story above because they hamper your business’s ability to save income. Your business’s cash flow is eroded,  and slowly but surely another short-term problem comes up. Because of your MCA, you have little to no savings on hand, and you have to take out another loan.

So when it comes to alternative financing,  know precisely what you’re pledging. Be sure your hard money provider is the real deal.

Fix and Flip Loans: Exit Strategies.

iStock_000002512608_LargeYou are in the flipping game, and you’re just brimming with hopeful expectations about your next project. The house is a diamond in the rough, and in your capable hands, you will polish it into a sparkling gem. You are ready to apply for a loan, but what if things don’t quite go according to plan? With Arizona fix and flip loans its best to have an exit strategy in mind before you even apply.

Finding the right opportunity isn’t everything the flipping game, in fact, it might be even more critical to plan ahead in case things go wrong. Don’t be overconfident going into your next deal. No matter how beautiful the renovations you intend to make or how splendid profit your projections look on paper, math and reality don’t always line up. When it comes to flipping, there are two classes of exit strategy: preemptive and “well that sucks,” strategies.

Preemptive Exit Strategies for Arizona Fix and Flip Loans

A preemptive exit strategy involves you getting out of a deal before you begin the project in earnest. When it comes to taking preemptive action there are two basic strategies:

  • Keep it Simple:  in this case, you’ve lost confidence in the prospect of doing a full-blown renovation, but you still think there’s some money to be made. So keep it simple, narrow the scope of work, replace the carpet or give the interior a fresh paint job. Then you sell the house for a little less money to a prospective buyer.

  • Wholesaling: Basically you leave the house untouched, you don’t do any work, and you sell the house back to another real estate investor. Whatever preemptive strategy you choose you need to ensure the sale price can pay-off the remaining balance of your loan.

The worst-case scenario is that you’ve already gone full bore into a project, completed renovations and…

“Well, that sucks,” exit strategies for Arizona Fix and Flip Loans

Your once shambolic home is now full of snappy furniture and shiny finishes, but no one is buying.  The open door creaks in the wind and the cookie plates go unconsumed at every open house. All the while the home sits unsold and you are paying real estate commissions and the cost of carrying your loan. There are two basic things you can do in this case:

  • Rent it:  You find someone who is willing to pay for the privilege of living in your home every month.  Of course, if you go for this option, that high-interest short-term loan you took out the flip house in the first place might be too expensive. The rent you charge must at least equal your loan payments. If not you might need to refinance, 

But if you can’t refinance you might have to,

  • Eat it:  You keep lowering the list price until someone takes the house off your hands.  Hopefully, in the end, you’ll breathe a sigh of relief, you might not have made a profit but at least the final sale price paid for the loan. But this won’t always be the case, you might just have to eat the difference between the final sale price and the outstanding loan balance. But this better than going into default.

So how do you avoid eating it? Don’t just waltz wistfully into every opportunity, hold off a bit. If you have some uncertainty, ponder if you’ll be able to refinance if the property doesn’t sell. But if you regularly flip houses, sometimes you will simply have to eat it.

The Real Deal: Arizona Private Money Lenders Connect with Clients in an Era of Red Tape

2page_img4Understanding Arizona Private Money Lenders and their relationship with both lenders and investors

Arizona Private Money Lenders are individuals or investment groups that are not backed by an official financial organization. They are not banks and they usually do not advertise to the public. Instead, on a word-of-mouth basis, Arizona Private Money Lenders lend money to individuals with whom they have a direct or indirect relationship. While some individuals believe that there is inherent risk in receiving loans from a private lender because they are not backed by an institution, others seem to find comfort in a person-to-person relation with a lender with whom they can talk and reason with individually.

Arizona Private Money Lenders are investors of their own money and that of other investors. They pool a significant amount of money, find suitable investments and secure returns in the form of interest, equity, and property. Their goal is to eke out a growing profit stable enough to support them and their investors.

To do business, Arizona Private Money Lenders require a dead of trust and notes to secure loans. The deed to a property is held by a private money lender until the note or loan is payed off by the borrower. Should the borrower fail to pay of the remainder of the note and foreclosure is unavoidable, the deed of trust permits the lender to take back the property and liquidate it.

Advantages of Arizona Private Money Lenders

Arizona Private Money Lenders charge higher interest rates and lend for shorter terms than banks. While this may seem likely to drive away clients, Arizona Private Money Lenders have formed a niche market for those who have credit issues, foreclosures, bankruptcies, or sold and bought real estate. Situated outside of the federal regulations of financial institutions, Arizona Private Money Lenders have more flexibility and patience with lenders. Many times, Arizona Private Money Lenders are able to prolong foreclosure and work through temporary issues with clients to secure money, excising a healthy balance between grace and justice where banks would prefer to cut out the pound of flesh.

Arizona Private Money Lenders provide a personable and understanding relationship with their clients.

If you, like many, have a need for a private loan, research the Arizona Private Money Lenders in your local community. Or find mortgage brokers or individuals who have dealt with or have received loans from these types of lending sources. Locate the lending source that suits you.

The Facts About Arizona Rental Property Loans

iStock_000002338446_LargeGet more returns with Arizona Rental Property Loans.

First off, property investment attracts investors wanting to use funding from a bank, instead pulling an ungodly amount of cash out of pocket. Do you have to be a million or billionaire? No. Not at all. You just need to secure the funding and provide a percentage of cash down to protect a lender should a foreclosure occur. This is great! To start leasing, you do not have to fork out a fortune to buy a $200,000 home along with the added cost of renovations, marketing, and the works. Instead, you rely on a lender: an entity that evaluates value, equity, and risk in order to fund you, the investor.

Alright, you can get money from Arizona Rental Property Loans. So what. What does that get you? Well, “you gotta have money to make money,” and when it comes to property investment, you generally use Arizona Rental Property Loans to purchase real estate to build, fix real estate to sell, or renovate real estate to rent. If you have connections and experience with construction and contractors, building may be a viable option. If you are looking for a quick pop and a good return within a shorter period, flipping may be your niche. However, if you’re in the game for the long haul, if you want to build the next mecca of personal equity, or if you just want a steady trickle of cash from leasing, rental property is where it’s at.

Arizona Rental Property Loans allow for an individual to build equity by using profit from leasing to pay off debt. Equity is what you own: for example, you put down $35,000 to receive a loan of $65,000 at a certain interest rate. $35,000 is your equity in the property. The more you pay and the less you owe the lender, the greater your equity. Aside from paying off debt, renovation may increase the overall value of a property, worth of a debtor’s equity, and the price of rent.   

Arizona Rental Property Loans Create Long-Term Security

While constructing and flipping provide relatively quicker returns, investing in rental property may establish income via long-term renters. With a newly renovated property in a desirable area and at a market-conscious price, a landlord with a business knack can rake in consistent returns.

Build equity with Arizona Rental Property Loans.

Over time, investors hope to pay off the property. Owning property free and clear once again increases the returns. Should the market value of property rise, the owner is able to sell the property and reap the benefits of positive equity. If the owner chooses to continue leasing the property, he or she can then use the money to further invest and build more rentals, businesses, or savings.

WHERE TO FIND FINANCING FOR AN ARIZONA SPEC HOME

userHave you been turned down by banks because you don’t have perfect credit? Do you have collateral? Do you need a loan to invest in property?

Many people are not familiar with the term, “spec loan.” A Spec loan is a term used for a loan on a speculative property; meaning it the end game is unpredictable. A speculative property is one that the developer has not sold. And, because the sale has not been finalized, the loan itself is only speculative. Financing a spec home is a process, and it’s a little different than a conventional home loan.

Traditional banks are not quick to approve financing for an Arizona spec home. It is a risk for a lender because it is essentially a loan for a construction project without a committed buyer; and that flags risk to the banks. You’ll work with a mortgage lender when building an Arizona spec home. However, the builder will need the financing from mortgage lenders to purchase the needed materials and pay the construction crews. To prove to the lenders that your income is sufficient to pay back the construction loan. The borrower is expected to have enough funds to pay for the monthly payments on the loan, holding costs, insurance and taxes.

You will also need to write a marketing plan because this loan is to build something that will make a profit in the future. The point of this plan will describe how high you will price your completed home. Remember, a Arizona spec home is a home that hasn’t been built yet.This marketing plan will show who your target buyers will be and how you will inform potential buyers of this home being on the market. One idea would be to hire a realtor to promote your investment.

Where to find financing for an Arizona spec home?

Traditional lenders usually are not willing to provide a borrower with a loan on an Arizona spec home hard money loan due to unreliable lending practices from the past. Arizona hard money lenders are much more eager to lend on an Arizona spec home than a bank.

For example, a loan may be six-months, have 4 points and a 13% interest rate. This is quite different than a traditional bank loan.

Arizona hard money lenders can create a unique loan structure. If you’ve been turned down by a traditional lender because of credit a Arizona hard money lender should be your next step.

WHY YOU SHOULD WORK WITH AN ARIZONA PRIVATE MONEY LENDER

What is a private money lender? How can I benefit from one?

The definition of a Arizona private money lender is a non-institutional lender that issues short-term loans for the purchase and renovation of an investment property. These loans are secured by the borrower’s assets. An Arizona private money lender can be anyone from a family member to a private lending institution.

Private money lenders are commonly known as Arizona hard money lenders. These are considered the best types of lenders due to their reliability, costs, fees and loan terms.

The interest on a private money loan is an interest-only monthly payment. What that means is that throughout the repayment period the borrower pays only the interest accrued on the loan as their monthly payment. Then, at the end of the loan it is paid in full. Even though the interest rate will be higher than a conventional bank loan, the monthly payment may easily be less. Because of this many house flippers take out loans from private money lenders. In fact, short-term Fix-and-Flippers that want to buy, renovate and sell within 6 months to a year are great candidates for private money loans. Buy-and-Hold Investors looking to purchase and renovate a rental property, prior to refinancing with a conventional loan, also benefit from these loans. However, private money loans will fund a variety of properties such as apartments, condos, commercial real estate, and single family homes.

How do Arizona private money lenders work?

Traditional bank loan approval is based largely off a borrower’s FICO score, revenue stream and employment. Private money lenders are less concerned with your FICO score and more interested in your hard assets. This gives the lender security knowing if the borrower defaults they will be repaid.

After-rehab-value (ARV) and loan-to-value (LTV) are terms borrowers should familiarize themselves with. ARV is what the property will be worth once the renovations are complete. LTV describes the size of the loan you take out compared to the value of the property that is securing the loan. Private lenders will usually loan out an amount that is equal to a percent of a property’s LTV or ARV. Most commonly they will lend 90% of a property’s LTV and 80% of a property’s ARV. That being said, it is pretty common for private lenders to give loans based on ARV for a property in poor condition and a loan based on LTV in fair to good condition.

What to look for in an Arizona private lender.
  1. Interest rates and fees— Private money loan interest rates will vary. Typically, interest rates are somewhere around 8%-15%; lending fees around 1.5%-11%. Make sure you research and find the rates and fees that will work best in your situation.

  2. Experience— Lenders are proud of the years they have been in business and the amount of loans they have approved. Often this type of information is found on their websites. The more deals they have done equals more experience. Having experience on your side will make this process run more smoothly.

3.   Specialization: Private lenders frequently have a specific area of real estate

     they specialize in; this can be residential or commercial. You want to work

     with a lender that has experience in the property type you are financing.

Do your homework; find a lender that will work for you. It can be a scary step. But, once you familiarize yourself with the process it can make your dreams come true!
