Loan Example 1
Iron Bridge Lending issues a hard money loan to Janet for a remodeling project in Los Angeles, CA, on a house that costs $220,000. The terms of the loan include a 70% loan to value (LTV), so she must contribute 30% of the price as cash at closing, which makes the principle loan amount $154,000. The loan is interest only, with monthly payments, and is for 6 months at 10% interest with 5 origination points paid at the closing.
Janet will need to contribute $66,000 to the closing (30% on the 70% loan to value), plus she will need to pay the $7,700 origination fee. Once the deal closes, she will need to pay Iron Bridge Lending $1,283 in monthly interest payments, or 10% multiplied times $154,000 divided by 12 months in the year. At the end of the loan, she sells the rehabed house for $319,000. After deducting the $7,700 in interest payments ($1,283 multiplied times 6 months), the $7,700 origination fee, the $154,000 principle on the loan, and the $66,000 she contributed to the closing, she will earn a total profit of $83,600 ($319,000 price minus $235,400 in costs). This profit would then be reduced by any building costs paid out of pocket.
Loan Example 2
Dan is a an investor in Los Angeles, CA. He purchases a run-down house for a remodeling project and takes a fix and flip loan from Iron Bridge Lending with the following features:
a) A $240,000 purchase price, b) a 55% loan to value (LTV), c) a 12 month term, d) a 11% interest rate, and e) a 1% origination fee.
Dan plans to list the property at the end of the term for $324,000. If he accomplishes his goal, the deal numbers would be as follows:
$324,000 sales price
- $132,000 loan principle (55% LTV)
- $108,000 cash paid at closing (45% on 55% LTV)
- $1,320 origination fee (1% of the $132,000 principle amount)
- $14,520 total interest paid (12 months x 11% interest)
= $68,160 gross profit (does not include taxes or rehab costs)

These people are so hard to deal with after the loan is set up, the draw process is ridiculous, we never get all of the requested draw, they always take longer than necessary to take care of draw. they withhold 33% of the draw for 2% not being done. Hope to never deal with them again, their customer service sucks, so tired of dealing with them.These people are so hard to deal with after the loan is set up, the draw process is ridiculous, we never get all of the requested draw, they always take longer than necessary to take care of draw. they withhold 33% of the draw for 2% not being done.
