Residential Bridge Loans
North Coast Financial are experienced bridge loan lenders providing bridge loans in Los Angeles and throughout the state of California. Bridge loans allow homeowners to borrow against their current primary residence to purchase a new home. The main benefits of bridge loans are being able to purchase a new property before selling an existing property (not having to move twice), not having to qualify based on a debt to income ratio, and overall fast and flexible funding.
Short-term bridge loans are typically secured against the existing property which provides the needed funds to purchase a new property. Once the borrower purchases the new property, the previous property is sold which pays off the bridge loan. A residential bridge loan can also be secured against the new property if the borrower has a sufficient down payment. A double bridge loan (loan against current property and new property) can be used by a borrower if needed.
Bridge loans are also available for real estate investors who need to take out a loan against an existing property to purchase new real estate.

Hard Money Rehab Loans – Fix & Flip Loans
Hard money rehab loans are utilized by real estate investors who want to acquire a property, make repairs and upgrades and then immediately sell the property for a profit. Also known as fix and flip loans, hard money rehab loans provide the real estate investor with quick and easy funding, allowing the investor to capitalize on short-term opportunities without having to tie up all their funds in a cash deal.
Please view our Hard Money Rehab / Fix and Flip Loan page or contact North Coast Financial for more information.
Trust Loans, Probate Loans & Estate Loans
Trust, Probate and Estate loans are available for heirs and beneficiaries in need of short-term financing against real estate assets within an estate or trust. These loans are also known as Prop 58 loans or Prop 19 loans and allow beneficiaries to prevent a property tax reassessment when the real estate transfers from the trust or estate to the beneficiary (parent to child transfer).
The borrowed funds are often used to pay off other heirs when dividing ownership or to settle debt obligations of the estate or trust. The trust or estate must contain real estate located in California in order for North Coast Financial to consider providing a loan. View our Probate & Estate Loans or our Trust Loans page for additional information.

Hard money lenders are mainly asset-based lenders. When considering loan approval, North Coast Financial is most concerned with the current value of the property used as collateral as well as the amount of equity the borrower has in the property. Issues on a borrower’s record such as poor credit scores, short sales, bankruptcies, foreclosures, and loan modifications can be overlooked in some situations.

Once the has been approved, North Coast Financial quickly begins the loan process and works closely with the borrower until the loan has been funded. North Coast Financial prepares all the needed loan documents and disclosures and answers any and all questions from the borrower along the way.

What is a Hard Money Loan?
A hard money loan is similar to a conventional home mortgage. The borrower is provided with a loan and real estate serves as the collateral. The key difference is that hard money loans are funded by private investors instead of institutional lenders such as banks and credit unions.
Unlike institutional lenders, hard money lenders do not primarily focus on income history or credit scores. Hard money lenders are primarily concerned with the property’s value and borrower’s the equity in the property. The emphasis on value and equity allows for fast and flexible funding that banks aren’t able to compete with.
Hard money lenders typically require a down payment of at least 25-30%. This amount of down payment is higher than what banks and credit unions typically require. The trade off is that hard money lenders have fewer requirements for loan approval.
Hard money lending is for short-term use only. The borrower must have an exit strategy in mind when they are applying for the loan. Hard money loans of up to 3 years are often available to borrowers. Common exit strategies include refinancing with a conventional loan or selling the property.
Hard money lending companies have higher interest rates than conventional bank lenders. Los Angeles hard money loan interest rates typically range from 8-12% for a 1st (senior loan). Hard money 2nd loans can range from 11-14% interest as there is a greater amount of risk assumed by the lender in 2nd position. The specific rate will vary based on many variables such as the lender, borrower, property and loan to value requested. While hard money interest rates are higher than conventional loans, the flexible lending criteria and fast funding is typically worth the higher cost to the borrower.
Real estate investors in need of quick financing to secure a limited-time opportunity are often the biggest beneficiaries of fast hard money loans. Since hard money loans for real estate are only offered for short terms, the higher interest rates often aren’t a significant cost over the course of the real estate investment.
