The loan made a lot of sense because the borrower wanted to have additional funds on hand to buy a fixer upper if the right property came along. Basically, the homeowner was hoping to leverage this money into additional income from flipping a few houses in the next few years. .
For the trust deed investor making this loan, it also made a lot of sense. They had a strong borrower with over a decade of self-employment who wanted to pull $100,000 out of their primary residence. Even after taking out the second trust deed, there would still be at least $250,000 in protective equity left in the property. Plus, the loan was set up for seven years (84 months), so there wouldn’t be any immediate pressure on the borrower to meet any balloon payment deadlines that often occur with 24 or 36 month hard money second mortgages.
Overall, this was an excellent loan that satisfied all parties involved.
