Why Real Estate Lines of Credit in Arizona are Getting More Attention

iStock_000004067318XSmallReal estate lines of credit are growing in popularity. If you’re involved in investing, adding them to your toolkit can help ensure your success.

Generally speaking, savvy investors find out what works for them and repeat the same processes time and time again to ensure success. That said, they also create a toolkit of various options and tailor their approach depending on the project. One of the tricks of the trade seasoned investors apply is to be familiar with several forms of lending and choose the best one for each project. That way, financing and favorable terms are always just a call away.

Real Estate Lines of Credit in Arizona fit into this toolkit as well, right alongside things like conventional loans and Arizona Hard Money Loans. However, instead of taking a large portion of cash all at once, the investor uses it like a credit card, only taking what he needs as he needs it and paying back the balance. The funds made available can sometimes be enough to cover the cost of purchasing a property, though they’re generally in line with what someone might pay to do repairs or a full rehab on a property.

There are both single property and multiple property Arizona real estate lines of credit. With a single property line, the amount made available will generally be based on the value of the home. In these cases, most investors will use them to take money out to complete individual repairs. However, those with larger portfolios can have much larger lines made available, based on the value of multiple properties. In these cases, the investor may still use the funds for rehabs and repairs. However, because the cash can be tapped into at any time, many use this to purchase new properties and add to their portfolios.

When Time is of the Essence, Real Estate Lines of Credit are There for You

Being able to jump on an Arizona investment property with cash ready to go makes it easier to grab it before others do. It can also help sway a seller in your direction if there are multiple offers because they know your deal will go through and isn’t going to get hung up waiting for outside financing.

Know the eligibility requirements ahead of time to ensure approval.

Some lenders will determine eligibility largely based on credit scores, which can make it difficult to get approval. However, asset-based lending looks more at the value of the property or properties involved. In other words, if you’ve got a good amount of equity in a single property, you may be able to tap into most of it even if you have rotten credit. Moreover, conventional lenders tend to look for credit scores of 720+ once your portfolio hits a certain size, whereas asset-based lending actually rewards you for the extra equity and can often offer up more cash. Ergo, there are multiple situations and stages in your portfolio growth in which this could be ideal. If you don’t already have a specialist on hand who offers LOCs, talk with a broker who can go over all the options now, so you can have the cash you need when you need it.

24684040Getting approved for a Arizona business loan can be an exciting opportunity for you and your business. Learn how to spend your loan wisely to grow your business and increase your profit.

Great news! You have just been approved for your business loan! If your business has finally been approved for a loan, it’s time to spend your new funds carefully to best help your business grow and increase earnings. When used properly, Arizona Business Loans can be a valuable tool to help expand your business. These helpful tips will help you make the most out of your loan so that your business can thrive.

  • Keep your loan separate from the rest of your funds. Keeping Arizona Business Loans separate from the rest of the expenses in your other accounts can help you make sure that you do not overspend your loan or waste your loan on unnecessary purchases. Having to gradually transfer your loan through your accounts will help you keep track of your spending habits over time.

  • Make the payments on your loan automatic. Paying off Arizona Business Loans over time can actually be a good way to increase your credit score as long as you are sure to make your payments on time, every time. Setting up automatic payments on your loan can prevent you from making the mistake of forgetting a payment.

  • Spend on worthwhile expenses. Don’t waste your loan on costs that won’t broaden the horizons of your business or help grow your company. Instead, spend on worthwhile investments that can lead to exciting opportunities for your business. This could mean spending more money or marketing ventures or increasing the inventory of a product.

Forgetting to pay off your business loan on time or making payments too late can damage your credit score. Keep track of your spending habits and budget accordingly so that you will always be able to pay off your loan. Just because you have the added funds of a business loan does not mean that you should forget about your budget or increase your spending habits dramatically.

Common Business Loan Mistakes to Avoid

When used carefully and smartly, Arizona Business Loans are a smart investment for any business or company. A loan can give business owners much more flexibility within their business to achieve certain goals or bring more assets to their company. For example, strategically spend your loan on items such as marketing to draw more traffic towards your business.

Make sure your business loan expenses are valid. Don’t spend on unnecessary expenses just because you can.

It’s a simple truth that in order to make money, a business has to spend money. A business loan can be an exciting new opportunity for business owners to grow their business and invest in their future. Paying off a business loan over time can even lead to a higher credit score which can broaden a business’s financial future and options. Use a loan the right way to give your business the tools it needs to grow and succeed.

The Differences between Unsecured vs.Secured Real Estate Lines of Credit

userThe main difference between unsecured and secured real estate lines of credit, comes down to how these loans are secured. Both loan types offer you a similar degree of flexibility and savings when compared to traditional financing. Evaluating the cost of both loan types can help you figure out which type of loan is right for your specific situation.

Your personal property provides security in the case secured lines of credit. Personal property can range from your primary residence to anything your business owns or some other form of collateral. With an unsecured line of credit, the loan isn’t secured by anything except for your lender’s estimation of your financial strength.

Now, why not just apply for a regular term mortgage to finance your next real-estate purchase?

With a term loan of any sort, a lump sum is given to you up front. No matter how much money you spend, you still need to make interest payments on the full loan amount. In addition, with term loans, you generally need to take a new loan out to finance each separate acquisition. A line of credit gives you far more flexibility. With a line of credit you only owe and pay interest on the amount you spend, and you don’t need to apply for a new loan with every new purchase of real-estate.

Both unsecured and secured real estate lines of credit offer flexibility and savings over standard term loans, but there are some differences in terms of costs.

A secured line of credit is taken out and is secured by some form of collateral, which offers your lender a degree of safety should you default. By mitigating risk, lenders can provide lower interest payments on secured lines and larger credit limits. Nevertheless, with a secured loan of any sort, credit line or term loan, your personal or businesses assets at risk.

With unsecured credit lines you the borrower don’t risk your personal property if you default.  However, lenders need to protect themselves in some way, and so unsecured lines offer lower credit limits and entail higher interest rates, Unsecured lines also come with far more stringent qualifications versus their secured counterparts.

With secured and unsecured real estate lines its important to evaluate the costs of each loan type. This can help you determine which type of loan is right for your specific situation.

A secured line of credit is an excellent idea if you are confident you can pay back whatever you spend, as you don’t want to lose your personal property in the course of expanding your business. Because secured lines offer lower interest payments and larger limits, it is probably best to employ a secured line of credit for making full offers on properties.

Unsecured lines may be more expensive, but they are an excellent way to reconcile differences between offers you want to make and the amount of cash you actually have on hand.  You should employ unsecured lines only when necessary due to the higher interest payments involved.

In both cases having access to a credit line allows you to quickly close deals on investment properties. With a credit line, you don’t need to wait on a lender to make a full offer, which can give you an edge over competing buyers who might need to wait on financing. In addition, credit lines can offer significant long-term savings over term loans because only pay back and pay interest on the amount that you spend.

As with any type of financing, consider the costs, the risks and the benefits of each type of credit line to figure out which one is right for your specific situation.
