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 conventional lenders. 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 doesn’t matter. 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.
The main reason fix and flip loans have higher interest rates than a conventional loan 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 compensates for the higher risk involved in a private money loan, when compared to a traditional loan.
It is also worth noting that if you are an experienced investor, you may qualify for higher loan amounts at a lower interest rate.
The origination fee (loan points) is usually between 2-3%, but this varies depending on the loan term and the interest rate offered. To work out the expected monthly payments of a private hard money loan, it is best to use our hard money loan calculator.
On this point, it is also worth noting that the monthly payment of each New Silver hard money loan program works on interest only payments. This helps reduce the cash flow burdens of the investor while the project is underway.
In short, yes. While our credit requirements are not as stringent as a traditional lender, we do review the credit history of all our borrowers. If you’re worried about bad credit, it is best to look at our loan products page to see if New Silver is a good fit for your needs.
Right now, we do not specialize in commercial hard money loan lending solutions. With that being said, our maximum loan amount should be large enough to cover both single-family and multi-family projects, so a commercial loan might not be required.
