Hard Money Rehab Loans for Fix-and-Flip Investments

At FBC Funding, our skilled mortgage professionals specialize in unique funding solutions for fix-and-flip investors in and around South Holland, IL. Hard money loans are an asset-based type of financing, in which funds are secured by the value of real estate rather than a borrower’s financial fitness. They’re designed for short-term projects, which makes them a great option for real-estate investors who want to purchase, renovate, and sell a property quickly for profit. Our mortgage professionals offer some of the most competitive interest rates for hard money loans in the area, and up to 100-percent financing for our most experienced investor clients.

Short-Term Loans for Investors

Also known as fix-and-flip loans, hard-money rehab loans are short-term loans for investors who want to purchase, renovate, and sell a property quickly and make a profit. Typically, they have terms no longer than 6-9 months. They combine the purchase and rehabilitation costs for a project into a single mortgage loan. Hard money loans typically have higher interest rates than conventional mortgages, which are more suited for owner-occupied homes.

Hard money rehab loans may be used to rehab single-family homes, as well as multi-family and mixed-use properties. Many of our clients invest in several fix-and-flip projects at once.

Before you can get approved for a hard money rehab loan, you’ll need to get an appraisal of the “as-is” value of a property and for the projected “after-repair” value. Your contractor will also need to provide a detailed timeline of the rehab schedule and estimate the cost of repairs.
