John’s Tapped into the Market, Even When Off the Grid

Has anyone ever told you that Real Estate is on a 7 year cycle? That every 7 years values change direction and we are heading into a crash or a boom.

I've graphed real estate prices for the southwest over the past 15 years. (see attached graph) and to my surprise it has been 7 years from the bottom.   For Phoenix, the bottom was officially 3/1/12.  So it's been roughly a little over 7 year. Since the peak in 2006 is been around 12.84 years.  Read More

How to Get Financing for Cannabis Marijuana Business Loans

The number of borrowers searching for Cannabis marijuana business loans is at an all the high. Understand the market and your options before stepping into this slightly perilous, though very lucrative, market.

If you are a startup business, adequate financing is a requirement to succeed in your target market. If you are a liquor store or restaurant, you may seek financing from a traditional bank or credit union. However, if you are venturing into a marijuana related business and the ambiguous legal status of the marijuana federally, banks have been prohibited to open accounts for these types of businesses. Do not get discouraged, some traditional banks have started offering merchant services and lines of credit and even some Cannabis marijuana business loans. To fill this gap, Arizona Hard Money Lenders have swooped in to offer their lending services.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), a federal agency that guarantees banking institutions, will not insure banks that are providing Cannabis marijuana business loans. Banks would rather avoid making loans to a marijuana business since they view it as aiding and abetting activities that are felonies under Federal Law. Traditional banking institutions accepting deposits from marijuana businesses could be looked at as money laundering. The Department of Justice has decided not to prosecute banks, but if political winds change, as they are prone to do, the banks that have opted to allocate funds for these types of businesses could be in serious trouble.

To fill the space that is left behind by traditional banks that are not willing to provide Cannabis loans, private investors have moved in. Some of these include venture capital and private equity, angel investors, high interest loans provided by private investors, and marijuana consulting firms that offer loans through private funds they manage. And, of course, Arizona Hard Money Lenders. Some of the requirements for private equity firms to offer financing are: be incorporated, have a checking account in the business name, be in the marijuana business as a dispensary or grower for at least six months, monthly gross of at least $10,000, and have a personal credit score of 500. There are a number of public companies that acquire and invest primarily in medical marijuana ventures. A company may take a significant ownership stake (equity) in exchange for funding. The company, after the investment, still maintains operational control. Canada has just approved legislation making all marijuana legal.

Merchant Service

Marijuana businesses need a way to deposit money and write checks to pay bills, pay employees, and distribute profits to partners. If you want to use a traditional bank, you may not want to fully advise the bank what type of business you are in. Of course, do not cover up the type of business by making the banker think you are in some sort of different business as this is bank fraud and you do not need the headache.

Marijuana business financing is difficult, but the rewards are huge. The laws are constantly changing, making it beneficial to contact an attorney to learn the latest laws and any new revisions that have occurred.

At Level 4 Funding, we offer rates as low as 7.99%. We work with hundreds of direct hard money private lenders, some of which specialize in the Cannabis business field. No credit required and no surprise front or junk fees added to the loan. Call us for a no-obligation quote.

Banks v. Hard Money Lenders: Which Is Best for You?


When looking for a loan, there are a few places you could go, but how do you know what lender will work best for you? Banks and Arizona Hard Money Lenders have very different loan processes, so it can help to know about each of them to make a wise choice.

With the different loan options out there, it’s easy to feel a little lost. Banks and private lenders are very different, so one may be better than the other for the loan you need. Here are some of the major differences between banks and Arizona Private Money Lenders:

Application process

The bank loan application can be long and complicated, but might work for those who don’t need loans quickly. The process involves bankers going through your information in great detail to determine if you qualify for a loan, which can take some time.

Loan applications with Arizona Hard Money Lenders tend to be shorter and less complex than bank loans, meaning private lenders could be a good choice if you need a loan fast. Because private lenders tend to be more focused on collateral than financial history, the application process here can be much quicker than that of banks.

Approval

Bank loan approval is based on your finances, including your credit score and your past ability to pay back loans. A good financial history is your best way to get a loan from a bank.

If you have poor credit or loan history, Arizona Hard Money Lenders are the best choice for your loan. Arizona Hard Money Lenders base their approvals on collateral rather than your finances. Having collateral will motivate lenders to approve your loan, as they will collect your collateral if you are unable to pay off your borrowings.

Flexibility

Banks can be tied to their company policies. If they require a certain credit score for loan eligibility and you don’t meet that, you could be out of luck. Additionally, their payment plans, rates, and loan lengths might be rigid depending on their policies.

Private Arizona Hard Money Lenders have much more flexibility with loans. Lenders can adjust payment plans and other loan elements to help each client individually, which can be great if you need specific issues addressed.

Choose the lender that best fits your personal needs

Selecting the loan provider that is right for you should be based on your individual loan needs. Arizona Private Money Lenders work well for short-term loans that you need quickly and provide a straightforward, simple loan process. Banks could be better for longer loans, and work well if you have good credit.

Research Arizona Private Money Lenders to get more information about benefits, rates, and types of loans granted.

Although banks have their advantages, Arizona Private Money Lenders can work wonders for you. Research private lenders like SetaBay to learn more about their loan processes.

How to Know if a Hard Money Lender is the Real Deal

Handsome young man looking confidently

If you’re like most people looking for finance options, no doubt you’ve heard horror stories about lenders who totally dropped the ball and derailed a project. You may have even experienced it yourself. While personal referrals and online reviews can make it easier to find a reputable hard money lender, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll have the same experience. Moreover, companies tend to specialize in a specific loan type or cover a geographic area, so many people are on their own even if they’ve been through the process before or know someone else who has been. However, there are a few things you can look for when you make contact with a company that indicate they’re a good company to work with.


For starters, they’ll recognize your time is valuable. One of the biggest benefits of working with this type of financing is that it enables you to have cash in hand fast. If they’re dragging their feet and not returning calls promptly now, there’s no telling if or when you’ll get your cash. However, if they return calls promptly and address your concerns, you’re on the right track. You should be able to count on having cash on hand in a matter of days or weeks, not months.


Secondly, your broker will be eager to listen to you and help you strategize. There are lots of different financing options, and your broker should be able to ensure you’re finding something that’s right for you based on your needs.


Lastly, they’ll have experience in the area you’re working in. Single-family homes, multi-family homes, commercial properties, and other project types each require a unique set of expertise. You’ll want to be sure you’re working with someone who understands what you’re planning to do in order to make the approval process smoother.

Will a Reputable Company Still Work with Me if I Have Rotten Credit?

One of the biggest things a hard money lender will look at is the value of the asset in question. Although there are other factors involved in making a final decision, they tend to matter to a much lesser degree. For this reason, bad credit and even bankruptcies are less of a concern when you go with this type of financing.

A good company is there for you when you need them.

When you’re in this type of industry, building positive relationships is everything. A good hard money lender knows this and will do their best to help you regardless of your circumstances. In times where they can’t, they’ll still treat you with the respect you deserve. If you’re looking for lending solutions but aren’t sure which company is best-suited, contact Level 4 Funding. With experience across a broad spectrum of private money loans, a myriad of positive customer testimonials, and a low-rate guarantee, it’s easy to apply with confidence.
