The value of the property determines what percentage of that amount you are able to borrow. Capital Fundings will want to review documents that you have related to the investment property. Your credit score will also be considered when you apply.

You will need to provide personal financial information. This includes a completed credit application, bank statements, a credit report and documentation related to the corporation that owns the property. Capital Fundings does not provide hard money loans to individual homeowners.

We will also look at the neighborhood or area that the property is located in to determine if the price of your property is in-line with the nearby area. As part of your initial evaluation for your investment in the property, you should have reviewed online resources to help determine the true value of the location.

If you have any experience in real estate development, in any capacity, it would help to know about this. Even if you have not been involved in project finance, but have worked in design or construction on a property that was bought and then quickly turned around. All of this information will help us quickly review your application and, if approved, get your project financed.

You may be asked about how much of your own money is available to complete your project. Loan to Value (LTV) percentage is determined by what the After Repair Value (ARV) is calculated to be. This is the amount that may be funded. For example, if the LTV is 75%, you will need to show that you have the rest of the amount (25%) readily available. These readily available funds do not include things like credit card advances or other short-term loans. Is your need for financing property purchased, using an existing property as collateral, or for renovations? If renovating, we may put the loan amount into an escrow account and reimburse the borrower as work is completed.
