Loan Example 1
Calvin owns a business in Scottsdale, AZ and needs to buy a new warehouse to run his operations. Since he isn't able to get a standard loan from a bank, he turns to Cohen Commercial Equity for a commercial hard money loan. The building costs $360,000. Calvin will have to put 50% down, or $180,000, because the lender will loan only 50% of the acquisition (the loan-to-value or "LTV"). This means the principle amount on the note is $180,000. The parameters of the note include a 6 month term, a 10% interest rate, and 3 origination points paid by Calvin when the deal is closed. By the rules of the deal, Calvin will have to pay an origination charge of $5,400 at closing (3% x $180,000 principle amount) and will then make payments of $1,500 monthly ($180,000 principle amount x 10% interest / 12 months in a year). he will also make a balloon payment of the $180,000 principle amount upon expiration of the note, or before if he decides.
Loan Example 2
Cohen Commercial Equity makes a loan to Phillip for a remodeling project in Orlando, FL. The deal dictates the following:
$250,000 purchase price
65% loan-to-value (LTV)
6 month term
14% rate of interest
5% origination fee
If Phillip accomplishes his goal of a $325,000 sales price, the final numbers of the project would be as follows:
$325,000 sales price
- $162,500 principle (65% LTV)
- $87,500 cash paid at closing (35% on 65% LTV)
- $8,125 origination points (5% of the $162,500 principle)
- $11,375 total interest paid (6 months x 14% interest)
= $55,500 total profit (does not include taxes or rehab costs)
