Recently Funded Hard Money Loans in Florida
Palm Beach Gardens , FL
Our client is an experienced investor in the Palm Beach County area and found this off-market home after contacting homeowners in the vicinity of another project. While the home was livable, it was not updated, and needed significant repairs (kitchen, floors, bathrooms, paint, roof, HVAC). Utilizing a Palm Beach County hard money loan in Palm Beach Gardens, our client completed the work and sold the home in a 9 months period, yielding nearly a 200% gain on his original investment.
West Palm Beach, FL
This was our client’s first real estate deal. Our client sought to take advantage of the momentum in West Palm Beach’s real estate market and anticipated rent increases in the area. Although this was a new real estate investor, they received 80% of the purchase price and 100% of the rehab costs. As a local Palm Beach hard money lender in West Palm Beach, we were comfortable that our client was buying below market in this building. After doing cosmetic repairs (primarily removing the carpet and updating the kitchen), our client found a great tenant and refinanced into a rental loan.
Boynton Beach, FL
Our client obtained a Palm Beach County hard money loan in Boynton Beach to booster his offer for the property which beat out several other offers with conventional financing. After the needed repairs were completed, the exit strategy was flexible: either a sale or a conventional refinancing once the property was stabilized and rented. Ultimately, our client came across another fix and flip opportunity and elected to sell the rehabbed original property to raise cash for a down payment on the next deal.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do private money lenders differ from banks and credit unions lending for real estate investing, and what are the pros and cons of using their services?
Obtain funding for your real estate rehab projects with private money loans. No credit score or income requirements means more investors can qualify. Here are the qualifications for a private money loan:
- Down Payment: Use your down payment as collateral, ranging from 20% to 40% depending on the property type. Calculate based on the Loan-To-Value ratio. For example, if the property is $400K and the LTV is 75%, your down payment would be $100K.
- Appraisal: West Forest Capital will order the appraisal.
- Insurance Policy: West Forest Capital should be listed as the loss payee and additional insured.
- Builder’s Risk Insurance: Required for extensive rehab projects.
- Lender Title Insurance: West Forest Capital will be the beneficiary.
- Credit Score: While a FICO score of 600+ is preferred, projects can still be funded with a lower score.
Private money loans can help in various situations:
- They can be used to acquire and renovate properties that traditional banks might reject due to credit issues or the property’s condition.
- They offer a quick solution for refinancing an existing mortgage on a property that is reaching its maturity date.
- You can obtain immediate cash-out refinancing by using a property you already own as collateral.
- Private money loans are ideal for financing real estate transactions that require a fast closing, which traditional banks may not be able to accommodate.
- They are also a great option for acquiring a property under the name of a Limited Liability Company (LLC) since traditional banks often don’t provide loans to LLCs.
