As acquisition prices for fixer upper properties continue to rise due to increased competition in local markets, First Capital Trust Deeds has lowered the upfront costs on private money fix and flip loans by offering experienced house flippers two pricing options at 1 or 2 points.

Below is an example of the pricing breakdown at 1 Point and 2 Point Origination Fee on a $400,000 Purchase Price with a $435,000 AS-IS Value and a $550,000 After Repair Value (ARV):

1 Point + $1,300 @ 12.00% (14.081% APR)

  • $340,000 Loan Amount (85% of Purchase Price)
  • 12.000% Interest-Only  (14.081% APR)
  • $3,400/mo Payment
  • 12 Month Term
  • No Prepayment Penalty
  • Closing Costs: 1 Point + $500 (Doc Prep) + $500 (Processing) + $300 (Valuation) = $4,700

2 Points + $1,300 @ 9.75% (12.847% APR)

  • $340,000 Loan Amount (85% LTV)
  • 9.750% Interest-Only (12.847% APR)
  • $2,762/mo Payment
  • 12 Month Term

  • Closing Costs: 2 Points + $1,300 (Docs, Processing, & Valuation) = $8,100

  • = 85/100 Hard Money Financing (85% of purchase / 100% of rehab)

Most of FCTD’s clients already using this pricing structure have 3-6 projects going at the same time. If they know that they can resell a property within 90 days, they usually go with the 1 Point at 12.00% option. If they plan an extensive renovation expected to take 8-12 months to resell, they tend to go with the 2 Point at 9.75% pricing.
