Commercial Hard Money Lenders

Commercial real estate refers to income-producing property utilized solely for the purpose of business rather than as a private residence. Offices, hotels, malls, and shopping centers are a few examples of properties where commercial real estate lending is relevant. When you use a hard money commercial loan to fund a commercial real estate project, you can pay for the cost of acquisition and cost of rehab all in one loan with Intrust Funding.

Real Estate Commercial Bridge Loans

Commercial bridge loans are flexible loans that provide short-term financing for the purchase of commercial real estate and additional funds for the rehabilitation of property—they aren’t permanent financing. In addition to funding renovations and upgrades, a commercial bridge loan can be used by borrowers who cannot initially qualify for permanent financing.

Unlike permanent financing, where loans are funded based on the loan-to-value (LTV) ratio, commercial bridge loans are often based on the loan-to-cost (LTC) ratio or after-repair value (ARV). Lenders will consider a property’s current condition, renovation plans, and market conditions before approving or rejecting a project.

Because these loans are based on a property’s future value, they carry more risk to the lender than permanent financing. Pricing will be determined based on the level of risk involved, with higher-risk projects carrying a higher interest rate. Because conditions can vary widely with commercial bridge loans, terms will also vary considerably based on the factors listed above.

Once you’re finished with rehab, you will want to rent the property to tenants. The rent should be greater than or equal to 1% of what you paid for the home including all renovations, repairs, and other improvements. By renovating the property, its value should increase (if not exponentially, as in hot markets like Seattle). Once you rent out the property, you’ll be eligible to refinance your investment with a conventional lender and receive cash for the equity you have now built into the property with renovations. You can use this cash to fund the purchase of your next fix and flip.
