Hard Money Lenders in Louisiana

There is a vast array of hard money lenders New Orleans, Louisiana, but Tidal Loans brings more than five decades of experience to your next real estate project.

Instead, Tidal Loans will assist you with each step of the loan process quickly and simply to make sure you get your funds quickly and easily to begin your Louisiana investment venture.

What are Hard Money Rental Loans in Louisiana?

A hard money loan is a form of short-term lending that is backed by the property, not your creditworthiness. Instead of focusing on your credit score, Tidal Loans focuses on your property’s after repair value. This value is essentially your asset that is then used to estimate what the property is worth. The term “hard” money means your lender is underwriting the loan on this hard asset – your property. As a borrower, you will not need to worry about putting a large amount of money down upfront as you would in a traditional loan you may receive from a Louisiana bank.

What are other benefits of a hard loan in Louisiana? When you complete a hard money loan with Tidal Loans, they tend to close much faster than traditional loans, and you won’t need to dig up your tax returns or deal with other banking issues as you would if your credit was on the line. Have you already found a lucrative real estate option in Louisiana and want to close quickly? If the answer is yes, then a hard money loan may be perfect because of its main benefit – it is convenient.

Some investors have trouble getting funds because they have a large number of outstanding loans, but Tidal Loans can help leverage these real estate investments with a hard money loan. And, if you have already been turned down by a Louisiana bank because many conventional banks shy away from rehabilitation projects or properties that may be distressed, a hard money lender like Tidal Loans will provide 100% of the purchase and repair cost.

Types of Investor Rehab Fix and Flip Loans Louisiana, New Orleans, Baton Rouge and surrounding areas Hard Money Rehab Loans

This is where a real estate investor uses an investor rehab loan to quickly secure a distressed real estate property, receive funding for the repairs, and get the property back listed on the market.
At Tidal Loans we provide up to 100% fix and flip loans to Louisiana Real Estate investors. We will finance up to 100% of the purchase and rehab cost as long as the purchase and rehab amount is within our 70% of the ARV (After Repair Value).
For our investor’s other states. (We lend nationwide except for Minnesota and North/South Dakota) We will fund up to 90% of the purchase price and 100% of the repairs. We allow 100% CLTV, (Combined Loan to Value) Meaning we allow either the seller or another private lender to finance the remaining 10% of equity as a second note. That 10% is the amount the borrower would’ve had to bring to the closing table. This provides our borrower’s nationwide 100% fix and flip loans. The only funds our clients will have to bring to the closing table in this situation will be the closing cost

House Flipping Loans Without Rehab
There are many ways to make money in real estate. Another approach our clients is what we call in the industry as a “wholetail” flip. That is where the real estate investor purchases the property quickly direct from the seller and may or do some light repairs to the property, or just put it right on the market without repairs. The name of the game with off market deals is speed, and our private money loan options are key.

Buy, Rehab, Rent, Refinance (BRRR Strategy)
For our buy and hold real estate investors. Similar to the other two loans, we will fund the purchase and rehab, but instead of selling the property for a profit, the investor decides to keep the cash flowing property as a rental, (traditional rent or Airbnb rent, we provide short term rental financing as well) Once the property has a executed lease, (we do not need the tenants to have moved in, just the lease signed) we then can do a cash-out refinance loan at up to 80% LTV of the appraised value. Our clients love this because they are able to pull all of their cash/equity out of the property plus more and do it all over again. That is the BRRR strategy, but more like BRRRR, Buy, Rehab, Rent, Refinance, REPEAT!
