We specialize in facilitating hard money loans in California. We can help in most areas of California, and have hard money loan programs available for most property types.
For real estate transactions that fall outside the box, hard money is often times an excellent option to explore – especially in today’s tightened lending environment.
We have spent years building personal relationships with hard money lenders and private investors. Our relationships allow us to fund many loans that others simply cannot. Due to the personal nature of hard money lending, we can look past the issues that may preclude institutional financing. By building a package that highlights the strengths of your transaction we can put together a loan that makes sense. If the loan makes sense, chances are we can help you obtain funding.

Hard Money Loan Guidelines
Most of our loans are for between one and five years in term, although exceptions are not uncommon. While most of our loans are interest only, we do also offer amortized loans where the payments consist of both interest and principal.
Rates on our hard money programs can fall within a wide range. Most often rates will range between 10-12%, although rates below 10% are available for the right transactions.
For land loans, construction lending or rehab transactions the rates can vary outside of this range.
Turn times on our loans will range anywhere between one to four weeks. We do have the ability to close very quickly in some situations, while other transactions can take longer. Each transaction is unique, and once we have the opportunity to review your specific deal we will be better able to quote turn times for your hard money transaction.
Maximum loan to value can vary by transaction. For fix and flip or rehab loans, we can lend on the after repair value (ARV) up to 65%. On purchase transactions that are short term (6-12 months) we can lend up to 75% of purchase price or as is value, whichever is less. For longer-term loans we typically cap out at about 65% of value, although there are exceptions.
Credit is typically not a major factor in our hard money lending. While we do require a credit report in a file, we are more concerned about what is in it than your credit score. While credit is not a deciding factor, excellent credit can help us secure slightly more advantageous terms for you.

Hard Money Lending Areas
We are able to help proved hard money financing for most areas of California.
Although we can help with your hard money requests throughout the state, there are some cities and counties that often times allow us to have added flexibility when it comes to funding. Some of these areas include:
Contra Costa County Hard Money Loans
We have many resources for hard money secured by property in Contra Costa. In cities like Danville, Alamo, Walnut Creek, Lafayette, Concord, Pleasant Hill and other local areas out to East Contra Costa cities like Brentwood, Antioch, Discovery Bay and Oakley we can help secure hard money loans.
Alameda County Hard Money Loans
In Alameda County we have expanded lending criteria in many cities including Fremont, Berkeley, Oakland, Dublin, Livermore and Pleasanton to name a few. We work with many clients in these areas who are undertaking successful rehab transactions. In addition, we have funded many commercial and residential loans in these areas.
San Francisco County Hard Money Loans
San Francisco is one of the most solid areas with regards to stable real estate values. Due to this we can often times get more aggressive in our loan to value ratios, or with regards to rates and terms, when putting together San Francisco hard money loans.
Santa Clara County Hard Money Loans
Silicone Valley is one of the most desirable areas of California. With cities such as Los Gatos and Mountain View home to some of the largest tech companies in the world, it is no wonder our investors have a good appetite for lending secured by property in this area. This is another area where our guidelines can be expanded with potentially higher loan to value ratios considered not only on improved property but on land as well. Saragoga, Campbell, Morgan Hill, Los Altos and other neighboring cities are well within our hard money lending area!
San Mateo County Hard Money Loans
San Mateo County rounds out our immediate Bay Area lending region. With cities such as South San Francisco, Atherton, Belmont and Burlingame we likely have hard money loan programs that fit your needs.
Sacramento County Hard Money Loans
Hard money loans in Sacramento and the surrounding areas have started to pick up recently. We have a lot of investor money for this area of California that we are looking to place.
San Diego County Hard Money Loans
We have a number of investors in and around the San Diego area. We can help with all hard money loan requests in this area, but in particular the hard money rehab loans we can offer in San Diego and the surrounding areas can be more aggressive than in some other locations. We can help secure funding based on an after repair value, and typically will send an investor out directly to the property to personally inspect it and the surrounding comps.
Los Angeles, Orange and Riverside County
In these areas we also have a large number of local investors looking to place funds in hard money loans. We can help secure funding for most hard money loan requests in these areas for most types of property. Whether it is residential, commercial, land or a unique property type, we can likely help with your request.
