If there’s one constant in the rehabbing business, it is change. Adapting to these changes is what can make or break a project; learn how to use rehab loans from hard money lenders to keep your refurb project on target.
Hey, we’ve been there, too — you’re on schedule and under budget on a refurb and the universe has other ideas. You find asbestos or lead paint. An act of god threatens to derail a major project. A redesign ends up costing more than you anticipated. You’re out of cash and you’ve got deadlines and bills looming. If you can finish the project, you can sell for a profit and be out of the woods and onto the next one.
The banks might not want to deal with you at this point, especially if you’re already struggling to pay off what you’ve borrowed, or you don’t have near-perfect credit and an unblemished financial record. You could throw up your hands, give up on the rehab or leave projects unfinished and sell (possibly for a loss).
Or, you could get a hard money rehab loan.
Hard money lenders use private money to fund projects they care about. Unlike the banks and big financial institutions, these lenders aren’t hand-tied by major federal regulations. If they think the project has merit, they can get the money and, since there’s no complicated underwriting, they can often do it in just days or weeks.
With hard money loans, you put up a property or asset as collateral. With a loan for a fix and flip, this could be the property you’re working on or it could be an unrelated property. It’s a simple transaction; if you can use the money to finish your projects and sell your flip for a profit, you pay off the loan and pocket the gain. If not, the lender has an insurance policy. In essence, you’re betting on yourself.
