The housing market has been growing at an incredible rate over the past few years, leading to increasing numbers of real estate investors exploring areas for investment.
Virginia is becoming increasingly popular for real estate investing. However, obtaining financing for certain investments like fix-and-flip properties can be pretty tricky – especially with the rigid lending requirements of conventional banks.
At Pine Financial Group, we work with real estate investors specifically. Because investors have such a need for alternative forms of financing in Virginia, we have stepped in to offer hard money loans. By working with our Virginian hard money lenders, you’ll have an easier time financing your real estate investments throughout the state.
As a result, you can continue to strengthen your portfolio without having to worry about getting turned down for a bank loan due to overly strict regulations.
Convention loans can be incredibly challenging to secure if you’re a real estate investor. Traditional lenders view investors as a considerable risk.
As such, qualifying can be difficult, and obtaining favorable terms can be near impossible. Our hard money loans at Pine Financial Group will help you overcome these obstacles. We offer different kinds of hard money loans to fit your investment needs. These include the following:
A rehab loan is a loan used to cover the cost of repairs or renovations, although investors often look to use them to purchase and repair properties in poor condition.
Getting rehab loans has always been tricky when it comes to traditional lenders. Most lenders won't lend money to borrowers who want to buy properties in disrepair because a property must be livable for a conventional lender to approve the loan.
As a result, it can be hard to finance a fix-and-flip investment. It's one of the reasons why we are now offering rehab loans to investors in Virginia.
You can use a Pine Financial Group rehab loan to finance the purchase and rehabilitation of a property. The loan will be based on the after-repair value (ARV) of the property. We will loan you up to 70% of the ARV, giving you the funds you need to both buy and fix the property.
When buying commercial real estate properties, time is of the essence. Quickly securing the necessary funding can be critical to beat out other investors. Unfortunately, securing financing from a traditional lender for a commercial property generally takes at least a month, sometimes longer.
Pine Financial Group offers commercial bridge loans to address this and help you close on a property quickly.
You can use our commercial bridge loan to finance the purchase of a commercial property. If you're waiting for a conventional loan to go through, you can also take out our commercial bridge loan to "bridge" the gap during this waiting period.
You can use our bridge loan to pay for the property and any renovations you need to make. Then, after your conventional loan gets approved, you can use that money to pay off your bridge loan.
One of the reasons conventional lenders have such strict qualification guidelines is because they sell their loans on the secondary market. As a result, they need to make sure that the loans they sell will meet the guidelines of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, or other government-sponsored entities. One way to obtain a loan with more favorable terms is by getting a portfolio loan.
A portfolio loan is a loan that remains on the lender's books instead of being sold on the secondary market. As a result, portfolio lenders can work with each borrower individually and tailor the loan to fit their needs. Here at Pine Financial Group, we can help you find a portfolio lender to obtain better loan terms for your investment.
Traditional lenders typically require investors to make a massive down payment as part of their loan terms to help offset the perceived risk of buying investment properties.
However, we realize that not every investor has a large cash reserve to draw from. If you're starting out, it can be challenging to try and come up with a down payment of 20% or more, which is why we offer 90% acquisition loans.
Our 90% acquisition loans do exactly what they say they do: they cover 90% of the property’s purchase price, which means you only have to make a 10% down payment.
Additionally, you’ll be able to close within a few days using our 90% acquisition loan because we do not require an appraisal. On top of that, there is no reserve requirement or application fees.
At Pine Financial Group, it is our priority to help real estate investors in Virginia to secure the funding they need. We understand the challenges investors face when trying to get financing. That’s why we offer a variety of hard money loans to meet your needs.
Our goal is to make it easy to get the financing you need, so you can buy and renovate properties in Virginia and achieve your investment goals.
If you want to get a hard money loan, the first step is to fill out our pre-approval application online. If you get pre-approved, you will then need to provide detailed information about your investment project. For example, you’ll need to provide your financial information, including a recent bank statement and tax return.
After you have your identified property under the contract, you will need to submit your scope of work (including the budget). We will then require a full property appraisal from an approved appraiser. We will also require that you get property insurance and a lender title insurance policy. Then, using all of the information we’ve collected, we will review the project before approving your loan.
