Hard Money Fix and Flip Loans for Commercial and Multifamily Properties

Hard Money Loans for the Rehabilitation and Resale of Multifamily and Commercial Properties 

For less-experienced property flippers, borrowers with limited credit, or borrowers looking to fix and flip a severely distressed property, a hard money loan can be a great option. While it's true that hard money loans are significantly more expensive than other forms of multifamily financing, they offer a fast and effective funding solution for investors who can't wait for or may not qualify for other kinds of loans. Typical hard money loans for fix and flip properties offer terms of between 12-36 months, LTV allowances up to 90%, and interest rates between 7 and 12%.
