Hard Money Loans Rescue

Home Buyers & Home Owners

Hello again!

 

I always like to push the idea of home ownership.  It is still the best financial investment you can make at any time in

your life, so don’t give up if you are trying to buy!

 

In recent Trulia and Keeping Current Matters articles, the subject of Renting versus Buying was brought up; These articles pretty well covered why homeownership remains more economical than renting, throughout the United States. Nationwide, owning is 38% cheaper than renting! 

 

With a Hard Money loan from us, a family was rescued on their home purchase which they were about to lose out on:

 

The Purchase price of the new home was $234,000. They put down 30% of the purchase price ($70,200) and got a hard money loan of 70% LTV ($163,800).  While working to refinance, the Buyers paid 10.5% interest rate for six months ($1,719 monthly) and finally were able to qualify for a conventional loan.  They now pay $1,300 with taxes & insurance included. Their old apartment rent was $1,200 – just $100 less but now they live in their own home!

 

When your Lender, Broker or Realtor tell you “it is the time to buy”, they speak the truth. 

Best,

Forest

P.S. – We love referrals!

Private Mortgage Investing Is Ripe – Especially With Us!

by
Private Mortgage Investing Is Ripe – Especially With Us!

What a great time to be a Hard Money Investor, property values are just continuing to go up. Since 2012 private money loan borrowers has only been increasing as it’s the only game in town after B of A and Wells Fargo tell the Borrower “no”. Borrowers who have poor credit or difficult-to-prove income due to being self employed but have a decent down payment or existing equity know that they can most likely get a loan from us, despite being turned down elsewhere.

Anyone with money can invest and become a Private Mortgage Investor. It’s easier than you would think.

As the Broker of Sun Pacific Mortgage & Real Estate, I have dealt with Private Investors for over 25 years and we have become known for our integrity and honesty. Numerous friendships have been formed not only with Investors but with our Borrowers, due to the smoothness and honesty of service to both.

Becoming a Private Investor can earn you upwards of 13% in return by investing in mortgages. And by investing in real estate mortgages your investment is secured. Investing in mortgages isn’t only buying or selling of mortgages at a discount. It includes directly lending your hard money to individuals and securing that loan with a mortgage against their real estate.

I promote purchase loans as well as refinance loans and these can be at any LTV up to 75%. Right now the predominant offerings are purchase loans with 30% down. These loans should be made as the security is at its lowest valuation in years and the Buyer is putting 30% down. With that down payment, there is plenty of protective equity. Further, with that down payment the homeowner is not likely to walk away from the property.

As a Private Investor you can set the yield on the promissory note with the interest rate, points and prepayment penalties. Many individuals have started or are continuing as a Private Mortgager Investor as they can secure a consistent monthly income from it. It can be an excellent cash flow for someone retired or looking to set up their retirement funds.

For example, a private investment recently done for an individual to buy a home came to $196,000 with a rate of 12% and the Investor gets a monthly return of $1,960. Homeowner is very happy and intends to refinance down the line for lower rate but gets the home they’ve been searching for!

 

A Private Mortgage Investor is also known as:

1. Private Mortgage Lender

2. Hard Money Investor

3. Hard Money Lender

 

These are all private individuals lending their money directly to the borrower with a promissory note with interest rates, points and prepayment penalties the investor sets, and securing that promissory note with a real estate mortgage.
Private Mortgage Investing is ripe. Time to jump on the bandwagon with Sun Pacific Mortgage & Real Estate and get a good taste!

If you are interested in investing with us then Call Our Office at (707) 523-2099 and ask to speak to me, FOREST – The Guy in the White Hat!

 

Best,
Forest

Hard Money Rescues Turned Down Loans

Check out our most recent Hard Money video here:

 

Hard Money Rescues Turned Down Loans

 

If you feel like your loan application is drowning, soon to “die” by getting
turned down, then you need to watch this video of how I can rescue such a loan.

Real Estate loans can be hard to get for some with poorer credit, who are self
employed, had a recent foreclosure or bankruptcy. Or, you may just need a fast
loan and can’t find an “A” paper Lender who can fund fast.

This sounds like your loan request needs to be rescued, so call me, Forest – The
Guy in the White Hat! (707) 523-2099.

I can help with those drowning loans! For well over 25 years I have been
specializing in loans to Borrowers who have been “Turned Down Elsewhere” as well
as offering all other types of loans. For the last 4 or 5 years I have only
done Hard Money Loans. Recently, about 70% of the loans I have funded I had to
rescue from “A” paper lenders as they were declined for whatever reason.

There are really just 2 requirements for a Hard Money Loan: #1 You have to have
a pretty good down payment for a purchase or equity if a refinance and #2 The
ability to repay the loan.

Call me! Hope to be able to help you soon!

 

Best,

Forest

Hard Money More Attractive than Ever

 

Hello,

My last blog was the Federal and California report and forecast.

I live and operate in Sonoma County so that is the first region I’ll explore.  I would guess that about 33% of the loans I write are in Sonoma County.  That’s a disproportionate amount considering I lend in the top half of the state, from Salinas to the Oregon border and east to Nevada.

Lots of good news to report for Sonoma County. There was an Economic Development Board report in April 2014 that demonstrated Sonoma County business activity beats the U.S. average as a whole in expenditures for growth and customer demand. The trend is upward for commercial-sector confidence.

Another report from March 18, 2014 stated that Sonoma County’s economy is poised to further recover through 2015, bolstered by national growth that will spur gains in tourism and the wine industry, while additional support comes from, among other things, a stronger housing market.

In the Sonoma County real estate market, as in a lot of the counties in the Bay area,  prices are being driven up sharply by the lack of inventory.  This is good news if you are already into a home, but could make it difficult if you are looking to buy, either as your first purchase or trading up.  You should keep in mind that using Hard Money in this market may make your offer more attractive to a Seller – and their agent, as in many instances it is deemed the same as cash.

So that’s the report on Sonoma County.   And if you are trying to buy, persist.  Home ownership is still the best financial investment you can make at any time in your life.

 

Best,

Forest

Job Growth, Home Sales Will Continue Expanding in 2014 and Beyond

As Hard Money Broker and business owner this good article to share, mostly highlighting the last bullet points:

 

Looking ahead, the latest Burns report predicts:

§U.S. home prices will rise another 15 percent  from 2014 through 2017.

§Home prices will reach “normal affordability levels” in 2015 and then become unaffordable.

§Interest rates on 30-year, fixed-rate home loans will reach 4.5 percent in 2014, 5 percent in 2015, 5.5 percent in 2016, and 6 percent in 2017.

Hard Money Math – Simple Loan When Said Right

by


LENDER’S VIEWPOINT

By Broker, Forest Tardibuono

Hard Money Math

The lending choices for Buyers in this market have been simplified.  There are “A” paper lenders for Buyers who have really great credit, verifiable income and verifiable cash to close the transaction.  Next are Hard Money lenders, who require a good down payment and an ability to repay the loan.

There is really nothing in between.  So it really compels real estate brokers and agents as well as Buyers to become familiar with what Hard Money is all about.

Hard Money is very simple mathematically.

Here is an example assuming a purchase price of $200,000.

The “good down payment” mentioned above would be a minimum of 30%.  There are occasions where 25% will work but for this example we will use 30% as a down payment.  On a $200,000 purchase price that would be $60,000.

That would leave you with a loan amount of $140,000.  For a Hard Money loan payment you need to multiply the interest rate offered for your profile as a Buyer, times the loan amount to get how much interest you will pay per year.  Then divide it by 12 months to get the monthly payment.  For this example, here is what it would look like with a *10.50% interest only loan for $140,000.  That’s $140,000 X 10.50% = $14,700.  Divide this by 12.  $14,700 ÷ 12 months = $1,225 per month.

Please note that the 10.50% rate mentioned above applies in my office and can be higher or lower depending on the down payment, loan size, property, property location, occupancy type, etc.

Hard Money is here to stay and is a vital tool for the busy realtor and for Buyers who have tried the “A” paper route and been turned down.  2/3 of the loans I do are for purchases. The Buyers are so grateful too, as they thought they had no chance for home ownership.

I invite you to call your local Hard Money Broker and really get the further scoop on what Hard Money is all about.   It is the only loan program I now offer.  After 25 years of doing this, I know of which I speak.

Why RE Brokers Are Still Alive and Kicking

by

Getting back to the office after this morning’s great Santa Rosa Chapter of Realtors Marketing Meeting, I came across the below Pacific Union’s article from a few months ago called “Why Real Estate Brokers Are Alive and Kicking”, and it rings so true:

 

“So, why haven’t the Zillows and Redfins of the world killed off real estate brokers? Because they can’t replace what makes our professionals essential to the transaction: the market mastery, the in-the-trenches experience, the advice and recommendations that take decades to develop.

 

“They can’t match the combination of deep knowledge, insight, and instinct that allow our people to identify a client’s dream home –  and ultimately make that client’s dreams a reality.

 

“The Internet is great for research. But search algorithms, virtual tours, and robots just can’t replace professional expertise.”

 

Ever since I started our real estate and mortgage company with my wife 25+ years ago we have striven to be true professionals, honest expertise based on continuing education and regular market updates and networking so we were up-to-date on everything possible we could be.

 

All for the sake of our current and potential hard money and real estate customers!

 

 

Best, Forest

Top 10 Reasons To Use Hard Money

by


LENDER’S VIEWPOINT

By Broker, Forest Tardibuono

 

Having watched a lot of David Letterman Late Night shows, I realized just as he has his “Top 10 reasons”, there are Top 10 Reasons To Use Hard Money

Need I say more…

#10. You had a recent Bankruptcy.
#9. You are currently in a bankruptcy.
#8. You had a short sale not too long ago..
#7. You had a foreclosure yesterday.
#6. You have been in a bankruptcy for a year, had 2 foreclosures of rental properties in the last 12 months and you are currently short selling your home (true story!!).
#5. Your home loan was just declined by the bank that approved you a month earlier for something on your credit report that was there from the start.
#4. You have written 11 [unaccepted] offers and now have a new best friend in your Realtor.
#3. 3 words: “Fourteen” – “Day” – “Escrow”! (I just did one in 7 days. My record is 5, and I would like the challenge to do it quicker!!)
#2. You are the “perfect loan” for a bank. Perfect credit, perfect income, big down payment. But you want to buy a dumpy property and fix it up. Banks hate dumpy properties.
And the #1 Reason… As a Hard Money Lender for 25 years – I say YES when others say no!

 

Call me with your scenarios and let’s see how I can help you.

Flipping properties in North Bay….when done smartly it’s good for everyone.

Flipping properties in North Bay….when done smartly it’s good for everyone.

 

Having done many loans in the past and currently for flippers, I am with Rick Laws and Patrick Barber on what they say (see below Pacific Union Bay Area Real Estate Blog of June 6 2013 “San Francisco, Santa Rosa Metro Areas Ranked Among Top 25 Spots for Home Flipping”).  The price ranges for flippers has increased and the luster being added back into neighborhoods is really good, I say.

houses and their reflection

Blog with full article: http://blog.pacunion.com/sf-santa-rosa-metro-areas-home-flipping/#disqus_thread

 

My wife, Lynn, as the “Flipper Chick” Realtor she is really familiar with the flip market right now.  She definitely is working extra hard to find the best properties for her client so he can fix them up well enough to pull in some profit.  Santa Rosa’s values are moving up so fast that it’s a constant gamble.

 

I always enjoy hearing what neighbors say about the run-down houses that get fixed up.  They only increase the value of their own house!  Below was a recent neighbor who emailed Lynn about her client’s/flipper’s good work:

 

“What a beautiful flip on Monte Verde.  I live a few doors down and it has been fun to see this property transformed in a short period of time.   What a GREAT job.  Please tell the owner the neighborhood appreciates the change. Enjoy this beautiful day.” Dorothy

 

If you have hard workers who take an honest passion in their job of fixing up a house, it will be good quality and they deserve any profit they make! Which is their living’s work.

 

Best, Forest
