At times a commercial property owner or investor needs to act fast to either acquire a commercial property, finish construction, or cash out on their commercial property assets. Traditional banks often require lots of documentation and credit checks, which slows up the process. Bridge and hard money loans are generally based solely on the value of asset and require little to no documentation such as bank statements or credit checks. Interest rates are typically higher than traditional bank financing, but bridge and hard money loans can be excellent tools to acquire an asset or unlock cash to finish a project before stabilizing the property and refinancing into a more long term financing vehicle.
