Loan Example 1
Frankie finds a property in Salem, OR to flip and resell. Since she does not have enough cash on-hand to acquire the $350,000 house outright, she decides to take out a fix-and-flip loan from Down Kicker. The lender agrees to issue a note with a 70% loan to value (LTV) so they are willing to extend $245,000 on the property. The parameters of the loan also include a four point origination fee that is to be paid at closing and a 18 month, interest-only note with a 8% interest rate.
Frankie will have to contribute a total of $32,400 upon closing to cover the $105,000 down payment in addition to the $9,800 origination fee. Once the loan closes, she will pay Down Kicker $1,633 in monthly interest fees, or 8% multiplied times $245,000 divided by 12 months in a year. If Frankie sells the house for $455,000 after 18 months, she would make a gross profit of $65,800 after subtracting the original principle of $245,000, the funds paid at closing of $105,000, the origination fee of $9,800, and the total interest payments of $29,400. This amount does not include rehab costs.
Loan Example 2
Felix is a real estate investor in San Antonio, TX. He finds an older house for a rehab project and takes a fix and flip loan from Down Kicker with the following features:
a) A $270,000 purchase price, b) a 65% loan to value (LTV), c) a 6 month term, d) a 14% interest rate, and e) a 2% origination fee.
Once the rehab project is completed, if Felix sells the property for $405,000, the outcome would be as follows:
$405,000 sales price
- $175,500 note principle (65% LTV)
- $94,500 cash paid at closing (35% on 65% LTV)
- $3,510 origination fee (2% of the $175,500 principle)
- $12,285 total interest paid (6 months x 14% interest)
= $119,205 gross profit (doesn't include taxes or rehab costs)
