Reasons To Fund Your Investment Property with New Silver
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, we are a direct lender that provides asset based loans at scale. With asset based lending, the underwriting process can be more lenient than a conventional loan. This is because the underlying value of the asset is more important than the financial background of the investor when setting the terms of the real estate loan. As a result, the financing and credit score requirements are less stringent, income verification is not needed and the debt-to-income ratio of the borrower is less important. Plus, we can get you approved and closed within 7 days.
Yes. We offer ground-up construction loans for real estate developers that build single family (1-4 unit) residential properties.
Yes. A house flip loan can act as a bridge loan for real estate investors, provided the loan term ranges from 12 to 24 months in duration. More information can be found on the loan products page.
The main reason fix and flip loans have higher interest rates is because of the risks involved in the transaction. Unlike a residential home purchase, a fix and flip project could run over budget or the real estate market could take a turn for the worse, making the property difficult to sell quickly. In other words, you could potentially lose money with a fix and flip. This risk is applicable to the borrower and the lender. The higher interest rate involved with private lending compensates for this risk.
On this point, it is also worth noting that the monthly payment of each New Silver private hard money loan program works on interest only payments. This helps reduce the cash flow burdens of the investor while the project is underway.
The origination fee (loan points) is usually between 2-3%, but this varies with each deal. To work out the expected monthly payments, it is best to use our hard money loan calculator.
