Loan Example 1
Rosario finds a townhome in Miami, FL to renovate and re-sell. Since she does not have enough cash on-hand to purchase the $320,000 property outright, she takes out a private money loan from Transactional Funding. As the lender sets a 70% loan to value, Rosario will be required to put 30% down and the total amount of the note will be $224,000. The terms of the loan also stipulate a three percent origination fee which will be paid at the closing and a 12 month, interest-only note with a 9% interest rate.
According to the parameters of the deal, Rosario will be required to pay a $6,720 origination fee plus 30% of the sales price, or $96,000, since there is a 70% LTV. The lender will collect $1,680 in monthly interest payments from the borrower. This is computed by taking the total note amount of $224,000, multiplying that by the 9% interest rate, and then dividing that number by 12. At the expiration of the note, she sells the renovated property for $400,000. After subtracting the $20,160 in interest expenses ($1,680 multiplied by 12 months), the $6,720 origination fee, the $224,000 principle amount on the note, and the $96,000 she brought to the closing, she will make a total profit of $53,120 ($400,000 sales price minus $346,880 in total costs). This profit would be reduced by any rehab costs paid by the borrow.
Loan Example 2
Maurice locates a property in Miami, FL to remodel and re-sell. Since he does not have enough cash to buy the property outright, he takes a fix and flip loan from Transactional Funding with the following parameters:
$300,000 purchase price
60% loan-to-value (LTV)
6 month term
12% rate of interest
2% origination fee
Based on a $405,000 sales price after the 6 month term, the numbers for the deal would look like this:
$405,000 sales price
- $180,000 principle on note (60% LTV)
- $120,000 down payment (40% on 60% LTV)
- $3,600 origination points (2% of the $180,000 principle)
- $10,800 total interest paid (6 months x 12% interest)
= $90,600 total profit (does not include taxes or renovation costs)
