Why Use a Private Money Loan

  1. If you need funding fast. While a typical bank may take months to review your loan application, West Forest Capital offers same-day private money loan approval, and funding within 3-5 days. In an emergency situation, we can even fund in 1 day!
  2. If the property isn’t stabilized. Sometimes, it’s not a question of time, but it’s the actual property that a traditional bank won’t finance. Examples include a property that requires rehab, missing a Certificate of Occupancy (CO), or does not have a strong rental history. Private money lenders (hard money lenders) such as West Forest Capital will be able to fund the property when a bank can’t.
  3. If you have poor credit.  West Forest Capital understands that events that negatively influence one’s credit score can happen from time to time. Therefore, we mostly consider the value of the property, rather than FICO score or debt-to-income ratios when considering funding a loan.
  4. If you don’t want to take a loan in your personal name.  A traditional bank is likely to require that a property is owned directly by an individual they are making the loan to. If you would like to own the property in an LLC, or if you own too many properties for a bank to finance you personally, a private money loan is a great option.

Frequently Asked Questions

With private money loans (hard money loans), there are no credit score or income requirements. This makes it possible for more real estate investors to obtain funding for their rehab projects. The qualifications for a private money loan include: 

  • Down Payment: The down payment serves as collateral for your loan and can range from 20% to 40% depending on the specific type of property. These down payments are calculated based on the Loan-To-Value (LTV) ratio of the property. For example, let’s say you want to purchase a residential property for $400K. If the LTV ratio offered is 75%, then you would be responsible for the $100K down payment.
  • Appraisal: This is ordered by West Forest Capital.
  • Insurance Policy: West Forest Capital should be the loss payee and additional insured.
  • Builder’s Risk Insurance: For extensive rehab projects.
  • Lender Title Insurance: West Forest Capital as the beneficiary.
  • Credit Score: While FICO credit scores of 600+ are preferred, it’s still possible for projects to be funded with a score below this amount.
Yes, we can often pre-approve you on the same day as when you apply. For a pre-approval letter, please call us at 212-537-5833 or text us at 917-267-9523.

Private money loans can be used by a real estate investor for:

  • Acquiring and renovating properties that traditional banks won’t finance (due to your credit or the property’s condition)
  • Quickly refinancing an existing mortgage on a property that is approaching its maturity date
  • Obtaining almost immediate cash-out refinancing by using an already-owned property collateral
  • Financing real estate transactions that require a fast closing, which traditional banks might not be able to accommodate
  • Acquiring a property under the name of a Limited Liability Company (LLC). Since traditional banks frequently do not extend loans to LLCs, borrowers interested in owning properties under this structure can choose a private money loan as an alternative.

Private money loans are an important resource in the real estate investing industry, particularly for those looking to acquire and develop commercial properties or rental properties. These loans are a practical solution for financing construction projects, enabling investors to secure the necessary funds quickly.

Yes, we do fund rehab costs through a private money loan. In fact, we can fund 100% of your rehab costs. To do so, you will need to complete a portion of the project. We then send an inspector to review it, and we distribute the funds for the completed work. The entire process takes 1-3 days.
