The Hard Money Alternative
Is Brookview a Hard Money Lender? That depends. We like to think of us as “the Hard Money Alternative”.
In the fix & flip world, the term hard money typically means any lender that is not a bank or private individual. So in that case, we would fall into the hard money category for houses.
But Brookview’s origins are in commercial finance, and the term Hard Money Lender in commercial real estate finance often means a “lender of last resort”. That is not us. While we can often fund harder to finance properties, our commercial bridge loans are typically for value-add projects up to $50 million and our rates are highly competitive.
The hard money label in commercial real estate has also been associated with lenders who would not mind owning your property. Brookview is not a lend-to-own shop. We want you to succeed and are an experienced second set-of-eyes for your real estate investing business. We have the knowledge, creativity and flexibility to properly structure your deal and can help save you if your deal gets into trouble. To us, a foreclosure is a failed relationship and our numbers speak for themselves. In the past 10 years, our foreclosure rate has been practically non-existent (less than one-tenth of one percent), which means we have funded and guided thousands of investors at a success rate of 99.9%. Something most hard money lenders or private lenders cannot say.
Where will your lender be in the next market downturn? Will they have the ability and desire to help save your deal? Will your loan be locked up in a securitization with servicers that do not understand your business?
Brookview is a Private Lending Partner to real estate investors throughout the country, having our borrowers’ best interest at heart. We offer competitive rates, hands-on knowledge and senior level customer support throughout the life of your loan.
