For Real Estate Investors/Borrowers, The Advancement Group provides hard money lending that offers short-term, asset based loans. Real Estate Investors/Borrower are often unable to secure loans because bank underwriting guidelines. An asset based loan is a loan program that considers the after repair value of the property to be used as collateral and the Real Estate Investor/Borrower is asked to demonstrate his/her experience and abilities to reach his/her exit strategy. The interest rate is typically higher and the average loan term is typically six to twelve months. The short loan term is acceptable because the exit strategy is to refinance to a lower interest rate or the asset is to be sold. Either exit strategy will pay off the asset based/hard money loan.
