A Guide to Hard Money Loans

Hard money loans are short-term loans that are secured by real estate (usually commercial real estate). These loans are funded by private investors instead of banks, credit unions, and other traditional lenders. The usual term is 12 months, but loan terms may be extended to 2 and even five years and some principal. At the end of the term, a balloon payment has to be made.

The word “hard” refers to a hard asset. When you take out a hard money loan, the lender secures their interest with hard collateral, which means real estate property.

Commercial Bridge Loans

Understanding Commercial Bridge Loans

A commercial real estate bridge loan is a particular financing type designed to fund immediate opportunities while waiting for another source of funding. Perhaps the simplest bridge loan definition is in the term itself; this loan “bridges” that gap between two consecutive funding events: the time money is needed and that time when money is expected to come in to pay the obligation in full.


What to Know About Commercial Loan Refinance

“Refinancing” involves replacing a current debt obligation with another, under different terms.

Experienced investors use commercial loan refinancing as a tool for unlocking the equity in their CRE holdings while lowering interest rates and saving money in the long run. Some investors also refinance multiple properties into a single portfolio to increase savings and simplify things.

Investment Property

A Guide to Fund Your Investment Property

Having an investment property (or several of them) can be an excellent way to create real wealth. This type of real estate asset allows you to build equity each month while enjoying market appreciation potential, and of course, a reliable cash flow from rental income. 

Many people have successfully achieved financial independence with investment properties—and there’s no reason you can’t do the same. 

Difference Between Loan and Line of Credit

Difference Between Loan and Line of Credit

Loan interest rates are generally lower than the line of credit interest rates, but closing costs tend to increase. Also, interest accrues on the entire loan amount right away. 

Lines of credit work differently. They are similar to credit cards in that they give the borrower a predetermined credit limit. The borrower then makes regular payments consisting of both interest and principal to pay off a portion of the loaned amount. 

How to Create a Commercial Real Estate Investment Plan

How to Create a Commercial Real Estate Investment Plan?

Successful investing means’ growing’ instead of merely ‘maintaining’ your savings so you can reap greater financial rewards later on. Planning is essential in this regard.

Creating a written plan is particularly important to include commercial real estate (CRE) in your investment portfolio. 

When you have a solid plan, it’s easier to ensure that all your CRE decisions and acquisitions can ultimately help you reach your targets.
