Commercial Hard Money Lenders: How To Get A Loan With Rotten Credit

Rotten Credit Keeping You From Getting A Loan? Try Applying With Commercial Hard Money Lenders!

Poor credit can prevent many from even applying for a commercial loan, but it doesn’t need to. There is an option that is still available through commercial hard moneylenders.

People make mistakes with money. It happens. You don’t mean to (or maybe you did). Sometimes life just throws too many problems at you, and you couldn’t see another way out—or maybe you and your credit card were the life of the party in college.

So you developed bad credit while you were in college or your younger years. Now you are a responsible, hard-working adult that just wants to open your own business and be your own boss. It’s the American dream. Too bad your rotten credit rating is keeping you from getting approved for a traditional commercial loan.

But there is a solution to your problem—commercial hard money lenders!

What Is A Commercial Hard Money Lender?

Don't worry--you are not dealing with your local loan shark. So you don’t have to worry about someone trying to take out your kneecaps if you miss a couple of payments. No, commercial hard money lenders are legitimate, private individuals or companies that loan money to people and businesses with rotten credit who can’t get approved for a traditional loan.

Loans are secured by commercial property and will have higher interest rates than conventional loans. Since there is more risk involved for lenders, they can charge higher interest rates. It is not unusual to see a lender charge 11-13 percent and three points.

If you want to go into business for yourself, it is a cost you have no choice but to accept. You may hesitate because you don’t want to risk having your business foreclosed on, but lenders don’t want to foreclose on your property if they can at all avoid it. When they do, it is not unusual for them to lose money—and no one wants to lose money.

Beware The Fees And the Dreaded Balloon Payment!

Commercial hard money lenders are not going to be willing to wait 10-30 years to get their money back. They give short term loans; typically for a year, but maybe as long as three years. With the interest rates being as high as they are, if you can, it is not a bad idea to try and pay the loan off early—that is, unless there is an exit fee or prepayment penalty.

While it may sound strange to be penalized for paying a loan off early, lenders make money when you pay interest. If you pay the loan off early, you don’t pay as much interest. So to recoup this loss, some will charge a prepayment or early payment penalty.

Some will even charge exit fees whether you are paying the loan off early, late, or on time. This way lenders make a little more money off of you.

You will want to know if your loan has a balloon payment at the end. Where these can sting is if you are paying your loan off late, like many hard money loans often are. So along with the balloon payment you get stuck with a hefty late fee making it even more difficult to get the loan paid off.
