What is a Hard Money Loan?
Private investors and investment companies typically fund hard money loans. The terms of hard money loans are generally shorter than conventional or bank loans, ranging anywhere from 6 months to 2 years depending on the lender’s program. Hard money loans typically require interest-only payments with a balloon payment due at the end of the term.

What is a Typical Loan-to-Value Ratio?
To determine the Loan-to-Value (LTV) ratio we compare the value of the property to the amount of money borrowed. If a property has a $1 million value and a loan of $550,000, the LTV is 55%. Most hard money lenders will lend up to a 70 percent LTV on income producing properties and up to a 50 percent LTV on land.
