Continuing a 33 year legacy of Hard Money lending – also known as Private money. This newer and quite popular loan program is for Borrowers and Buyers who are just shy of qualifying for “A” paper.

Recently Funded Alt-A Scenario By Us: 

  • Non-Owner Occupied Purchase: $946,870
  • Loan To Value: 62%
  • Sonoma County

Santa Rosa Home Buyer was turned down by her Lender, 27 days into a 30-day Escrow. Had all qualifications checked except a last-minute issue as to proof of income, which resulted in Underwriting withdrawing loan approval.

The Buyer’s Agent luckily called our office, requesting quick help. With a low LTV of 62%, within just 4 days we had loan approved and funds ready for her purchase of $946,870!

In addition to this newer program, we continue to provide our traditional Private Money loan programs for those in need of fast cash, turned down elsewhere for credit issues or difficult to prove income.

Real Estate Statistics for July 2021 – San Francisco Peninsula Areas

Real Estate Market Results for San Francisco Peninsula Areas

Reports for last month show that the Peninsula is still a hot commodity. Homes are flying off the shelf with selling prices well above the asking price. Buyers can still expect to engage in bidding wars knowing that unless they get creative with their offer, they will probably lose out. All you need to do is examine the activity from July to see that real estate remains an extraordinarily strong seller’s market.

Menlo Park:  

  • D.O.M.: 6
  • Ave. Selling Price:  $2,563,025 ($175,125 ABOVE 6/21)
  • 16% ABOVE asking price

Foster City:

  • D,O.M.:  8
  • Ave. Selling Price:  $2,322,710 ($39,710 BELOW 6/21)

In this market speed is everything!  On the Peninsula in July, the average days on the market ranged from 6 days to 13 days. That doesn’t give a Buyer any time to dilly-dally.

If you want to be competitive in today’s real estate arena, getting pre-approved for a mortgage is essential. Beyond that step, consider a fast private money real estate loan from Sun Pacific Mortgage. We are known for our speed in closing deals in a week or less.

Give us a call at 707-523-2099 to get a bridge loan or a temporary purchase loan that you can refinance later when speed is of no consequence.

Four Key Trends in Today’s Real Estate Market

Four Key Trends in Todays Real Estate Market

As we move into the second half of the year, one thing is clear:  the current California real estate market is a “one off”.  Both buyers and sellers are affected by the mix of conditions we are experiencing today.  Here’s a look at four key components that are shaping this unique market:

  1. A Shortage of Homes for Sale:  Even though parts of the country may be experiencing small gains in the number of homes available for sale, inventory remains a challenge, especially here in California.
  2. Buyer Competition and Bidding Wars:  Buyers are having to go above and beyond to make sure their offer stands out from the crowd by offering over the asking price, all cash, or waiving some contingencies.  The average number of offers for the average home for sale was 5 in May.
  3. Home Price Appreciation:  According to CoreLogic, national home prices rose 15.4% year-over-year in May, making it the highest gain since November 2005.
  4. A Rise in Home Values and Equity:  As reported in CoreLogic, homeowners with mortgages (62% of all properties) have seen their equity increase by 19.6% year-over-year and have used this leverage to move into their dream homes or accomplish other life goals.

Bottom line?  Whether you are looking to buy your new home in Monterey County or move from busier urban life of San Francisco to Sebastopol, downsize your Santa Cruz home as your kids finally moved out – there’s no time like the present to buy or sell!

We have helped thousands of borrowers in our 33+ years in business. If you or any of your clients fall short of qualifying for a conventional loan or just want fast real estate financing, then Sun Pacific Mortgage can help with our private money lending. Give us a call at 707-523-2099 or check out our website at www.Sunpacmortgage.com to discover what we can do to make your next move easier and possible.

Loan of the Week

A Home Buyer was referred to us by his Realtor and Lender in Marin, as they were unable to get final Underwriting approval for his home purchase. This particular Buyer had credit issues requiring a few more months of handling before he could fully qualify for conventional financing. However, since he was already in contract he did not want to lose out so they referred him to us for fast help.

He needed short-term Jumbo financing of 705,000. Despite the size of loan, with a lower LTV of 62%, we were able to quickly get this approved, funded and money to Escrow within just 7 days!

How Can You Get Into Contract For A Home Faster?

How Can You Get Into Contract For A Home Faster

While the housing market forecast for the second half of this year remains healthy, there may not be a better time to sell than right now.  According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), homes are selling in an average of 17 days, and in California that number drops significantly.

Average days on the market is a strong indicator of buyer competition, and homes selling quickly is a great sign for sellers, not so much for buyers!  With inventory down, sellers can expect to receive multiple offers on their home in today’s market.  NAR reports sellers are seeing an average of 5 offers, and these are competitive ones.

If you doubted the competitiveness of today’s real estate market, you have only to look at a recent review of the San Francisco Peninsula statistics for June. This data shows listings sold for anywhere from 8%-15% above asking price.  This opportunity to pick and choose what offer to accept allows the seller to select the one that makes the most sense for their situation and financial well-being.

Over the past couple of years in California, homeowners have gained significant equity.  Equipped with this leverage, many sellers are looking to buy more suitable housing for their families. But what if you find the home of your dreams and you haven’t yet sold your existing house?  To make a clean offer and help ensure the purchase of your new home, buyers are looking for fast bridge loans to span the gap.

Sun Pacific Mortgage (707-523-2099) has offers a variety of private money mortgage programs, among them, bridge loans for both owner-occupied and investment properties.  By borrowing the equity for a short amount of time a buyer can close an escrow faster and not risk the chance of losing their desired new property by tacking on a contingency to their offer.

Our family owned and operated company of more than 33 years, has been able to get the necessary funds into escrow within a week, far sooner than conventional lending institutions.  Give us the opportunity to help you with real estate funding in California.

Is the Housing Market About to Crash?

Is the Housing Market About to Crash 1

With home prices at record highs and properties, especially in California, flying off the market in just hours, it’s no wonder that the Google search for “when is the housing market going to crash” has spiked dramatically in recent weeks.

Although this present housing mania may remind us of the mid-2000 bubble, experts say there’s no reason to prepare for a crash-landing like in 2008 and 2009.  This time the reason is simply a result of supply-and-demand.  There are just not enough homes to satisfy all the prospective Buyers out there.

According to Ali Wolf, chief economist at building consultancy Zonda:

“Today’s prices feel unsustainable, today’s frenzy feels unsustainable.  But that doesn’t mean there’s going to be a crash.  That’s bad news for a lot of shoppers who are hoping for prices to come down.”

He continues with the prediction that over the next year or two, prices will continue to rise, but at a much slower pace.  Bidding wars will taper off, and the astronomical offers over asking price will eventually come down, because there is no way the double-digit price growth can continue long term.

We are all aware that today there are far more Buyers than homes for sale.  That is another sharp reversal from the late 2000s.  Back then, overbuilding yielded far more properties than there were Buyers.  Now there isn’t enough new construction to meet the demand.

Probably, the most important factor in the last collapse were the bad mortgages.  Thankfully, these have largely disappeared from the market.  Today’s Buyers may be paying top dollar, but they have been carefully vetted to ensure they can afford their mortgages.

If you want to get into a new home before prices escalate even more, how about presenting a stronger offer with faster close by taking advantage of a private home loan?  Or, if you find you don’t quite qualify for the more rigorous conditions required in a conventional mortgage today, give Sun Pacific Mortgage a call at 707-523-2099 or visit our website at www.sunpacificmortgage.com.

We have helped thousands of Buyers over the past 33 years with our private money real estate loans in California.  We even offer owner-occupied home loans.
