Hard Money Loan
Hard money loan is a type of asset-based loan financing through which a borrower receives funds secured by real property. Hard money loans are typically issued by private investors or companies and carry higher interest rates than conventional commercial property loans because of the higher risk and shorter duration of the loan. A hard money loan is essentially the same as a bridge loan, with the differentiating factor being that hard money loans are generally provided by private lenders, whereas a bridge loan is provided by a bank or other traditional lender. Hard money loans are frequently used to acquire distressed properties and “fix-and-flip” properties. The formula for establishing the lending dollar amount with a hard money loan is often the LTV based on the “after repair value”, which differs from traditional lenders who typically rely on the “as-is” value. For example, a hard money lender may view a $200,000 property in need of $50,000 of improvements as worth $300,000 when the work is complete and may lend 70% LTV against the $300,000 after repair value or $210,000. By way of comparison, a traditional lender may also make a 70% LTV loan, but against the $200,000 “as-is” value or $140,000.

Investing in alternative assets involves higher risks than traditional investments and is suitable only for sophisticated investors. Alternative investments are often sold by prospectus that discloses all risks, fees, and expenses. They are not tax efficient and an investor should consult with his/her tax advisor prior to investing. Alternative investments have higher fees than traditional investments and they may also be highly leveraged and engage in speculative investment techniques, which can magnify the potential for investment loss or gain and should not be deemed a complete investment program. The value of the investment may fall as well as rise and investors may get back less than they invested.
