Unlike conventional mortgages, hard money Fix and Flip loans are specifically structured to allow real estate investors to quickly purchase, renovate, and sell or refinance properties. For example, a conventional loan will take 45 to 60 days to close. A Hard Money Fix & Flip loan will take 10 to 25 days to close. Further, unlike bank loans, hard money Fix and Flip loans are underwritten to future value and normally include a renovation reserve. The renovation funds are disbursed to the Borrower over the course of the project. Once the renovations are complete, the loans are either paid off through the sale of the property or a refinance of the loan.
