Fix and flip refers to a real estate investment deal. An investor acquires a property and rehabilitates it to make it desirable. The single-family home is then sold for market value at a much higher rate than it was initially bought at. The repairs made on the property make it a desirable home for prospective buyers, and once sold, the investor stands to make a hefty profit.
Repairs are done throughout the home. A bedroom may be updated, a new kitchen added, the basement finished, and the landscaping improved. The transformation improves curb appeal to prospective buyers, and each repair adds value to the property.
The flip portion of the real estate transaction refers to the act of selling the property in a short amount of time. Locating the buyer or prospective renter must be done quickly, so as to help repay the loan. The goal is to get a good profit on the property once sold.
What are hard money lenders?
These lenders offer loans that are secured by the asset itself, which is the home. The most promising projects are those that are led by experienced real estate investors. These lenders understand the complexities of these transaction, and many have once been real estate investors themselves. These lenders know what it takes to rehab a property and sell it for profit.
Private and hard money lenders look at the investment property. They want to know the purchase price of the property and the plans you have to fully restore the property. If they can see that the investor has the ability to purchase the home, perform the repair work efficiently, and sell the home quickly, you will get funding for the property.
The lending decision is based off of the potential of the property. This means the person can have poor credit or no credit, no job history, and not have any documented income or assets but still qualify for a loan.
How are lenders able to provide private loans and hard money loans like this?
Whenever capital is used from private investors, the traditional lending rules no longer apply. The person doesn’t have to qualify according to the FHA guidelines or meet the requirements of traditional banking institutions.
The terms of a fix and flip loan are very short, averaging anywhere from five to twelve months. During this period, no payments are required of the borrower. This gives you very little room for error, so you should know what needs to be done to quickly rehab and sell the property to pay the debt off. In failing to do so, you run the risk of foreclosure and could lose your hard-earned dollars invested in the project.
