hard money construction loans for investors

Hard money construction loans are an excellent option for real estate investors who plan to tear down and rebuild an existing structure for resale, or for those seeking financing for the ground-up construction of an investment property. These loans are typically short-term (less than 24 months in duration) and they can be approved and funded in 5 to 10 days.

Hard Money Construction Loans are Asset Based

Unlike a construction loan from a conventional bank, where there is a rigorous borrower approval process that can take several weeks or months to complete, hard money construction loans are asset-based and approval is based heavily on the after-repair value (ARV) of the property as well as the borrower's prior success with construction projects. Prioritizing project ARV and borrower experience over credit history allows hard money lenders to expedite loan approval and disperse funds quickly.
