Simple Answers to Common Questions
What is a hard money loan?
It differs from a traditional bank loan, in that it is mainly based on the real estate value and equity you possess, rather than personal factors like, employment or income requirements. A hard money loan gives a real estate entrepreneur the speed and funding to get their deals closed while producing returns for the private investor. These loans are intended for investment properties only, and not primary residences. For primary residential loans, see our standard lending programs.
What are your basic qualifications for hard money loans?
Here are the basic guidelines for our hard money financing:
- We require 15% down payment on purchases for experienced investors and 20% down for those who have less experience (less than 3 flips in the last 36 months).
- At least one borrower has a 575 credit score
- Foreign Nationals OK
- Remodel, fix and flip, or square footage addition to existing property OK
- Cash out on an investment property needing rehab OK
- No Felonies for Applicants
- Foreclosures & Bankruptcies must be 1 year old for any applicants
- Ability to show funds for the down payment, 3 months interest payments, and closing costs
- No ground up construction
- Expanding square footage OK, but we do not fund complete tear down and rebuilds on hard money. We do have traditional lending products that might be able to assist though
- Able to close in an LLC or personal name
- No Primary Residences
- No Modular or Manufactured Houses
We have multiple partners, and only one of our partners has a 575 credit score. Is this ok?
Yes! As long as at least one has a 575 credit score we can usually get you qualified. The same applies to criminal history or foreclosures. As long as one partner is ok, then this generally is not an issue.
I have an investment property owned free and clear, and need to pull cash out. Can you assist?
Yes! In additional to traditional lending products, we can also offer hard money loans for cash out purposes. We generally will lend to 70% of the value, with exceptions to 75% of the value for highly qualified individuals.

What is the Advantage to Using Park Place on my flip?
Park Place has a unique benefit, as we lend on both hard money and traditional, residential financing. So, once your flip is ready to go on the market, we can assist your new buyer with financing as well. The main benefits for this are that we have lenders that will approve properties with short flips, and in addition we have appraisals already on the property to use with comps for their property. Further, we can close standard, conventional residential loans in as little as 2 weeks, so that you can get your cash quickly and go find the next flip.
Do you roll in closing costs?
We can roll closing costs in on both a rate/term refinance & cash out refinance. However, we are not able to roll in closing costs on a purchase. On a refinance, the only out of pocket expense is the appraisal, assuming we have enough equity. On a purchase, you will be required to pay all closing costs out-of-pocket.
