Diamond In the Rough Solutions offers a quick guide for buying distressed and vacant properties for the purpose of rehabbing and investing.
Here we offer some common ways our lenders fund their real estate investing deals.
Diamond in the Rough Solutions, Inc. is a professional real estate redevelopment and we would like to introduce you to methods that give you greater control over your investments and safely make them grow at two to five times your current rate. Does this sound too good to be true? Well, the truth is, it is not. Many private investors just like you are currently enjoying these rates of return with minimum or no risk.
Smart investors have been utilizing this investment opportunity for years. In fact, there have been entire companies built around this strategy. This is a very safe investment that produces a high rates of return while at the same time provides higher level of security and liquidity. You’ve seen how unsure and volatile the stock market can be. Do you want your future to be controlled by the events that take place on the other side of the globe? Well, maybe it’s time to consider alternative.
So, what is a Private Loan? It is a loan made to a real estate investor that is secured by real estate. Private Loan Investors are given a first or second mortgage that secures their legal interest in the property and secures their investment. We are not talking about high Loan-To-Value (LTV) ratios the banks and savings and loan institutions make on homes. We offer very low LTV ratios to our Private Lenders to increase security of the loan. Our standard LTV ratios are under 75% of the value of the property securing the loan and frequently as low as 60% to 68%. This means additional security on the investment.
For example, if a property is valued at $100,000, our Private Lender will never have to loan more than $75,000 dollars on the property. That’s a 75% loan-to-value ratio. This is obvious a much safer approach from that taken by conventional lenders. These banks get into trouble because they make loans at an 85%, 90%, or even 100% loan-to-value ratio leaving them no equity for transfer costs, if they are ever forced into a position where they have to take back the collateral property.
You, as a lender, will never lend more than 75% LTV. As a lender, it is in your best interest to minimize risk and maximize return and this is why a loan should never be made without a 25% safety net. We don’t violate this rule, because your security is at stake. Who Borrows at High Rates and Why? Investors like us do, because we have learned in our business that it’s not the cost of money that matters, but quick access to the funds so we can capitalize on opportunities.
Our company can acquire good deals in properties because we can act with lightning speed and can close with cash. Private loans give us this competitive advantage over other investors who take weeks to go through the bank approval process in order to purchase properties.
Additionally, if a real estate investor locates a good deal on a property, many times the bank wants to loan on the purchase price not the value of the house, thus penalizing the investor for finding a great deal. Having access to money is generally a deciding factor in investing in real estate, so paying a higher interest rate is irrelevant when compared with the risk of losing the deal.
We will. It’s our job to get you proper documentation and protect your interest. All of this costs you nothing. The borrower pays all costs. If you make a $100,000 loan, you send a check for $100,000 to the closing attorney and you get a mortgage for $100,000.
We will set up your account. Just sit back and we will send you a quarterly interest only check for the duration of your investment. If you would like a monthly check, we can do that too! However, majority of our investors prefer to receive a one time, principle plus interest payment after the completion of a project. For accounting reasons, this is a preferred way for our company, as well.
Generally, your investment is tied to a specific project with a timeline ranging from 3 to 12 months. We have lending programs for short term holds of three to six months. We also have longer term holds of one year and longer. You can pick a term that suits your strategy. It’s your money and it’s your choice.
If you want out, a 45 day written notice is required, because we will need to replace your funds with another investor’s money. You really shouldn’t make mortgage loans if you feel you will liquidate this shortly, but the option is always available and we have been able to liquidate in as little as two weeks in some scenarios. Also, unlike with a bank CD, there is no penalty for early withdrawal. Just call us, and we will handle all of the details.
Yes! We always follow these common sense guidelines that we’ve talked about. Your money will grow two, three, or even four times faster than your current investments and you maintain control. Each one of our properties that we acquire is put through a rigorous financial evaluation in order to evaluate the profitability before the property is ever purchased. Remember that making loans is a business and should be treated like a business. If you set up a simple system and let the professionals implement the system, your loan portfolio can be hassle free and produce staggering yields. What are my options if Diamond in the Rough
Actually, there are several options but first and foremost, please be aware that “Integrity” is an essential part of our business and we only make sound investment decisions. One of Diamond in the Rough Solutions, Inc. distinguishing features is that we have never been late on a payment to a private lender.
Additionally, our company’s policy is to invest our own funds into every one of our projects because if we aren’t confident in our investment decisions why should you be? Likewise, if we ever lose the support of investors, we can no longer operate our business and our own investments would be at stake.
However, to answer the question:
We could restructure the payment schedule on the note. For example, let’s say we are behind on payments to you. Now Diamond in the Rough Solutions, Inc . can and would like to keep the house, but they can’t come up with enough money to bring you current in one lump sum. You could let us continue to make regular payments and make an extra payment on our arrearage in addition, or you could simply add the arrearage to the principal balance and extend the term of the loan. This means you would be collecting interest on interest for the entire remainder of the loan. There are always ways to work it out if both sides are willing.
