How is the Loan amount determined? – The loan amount is determined by the ratio of loan amount divided by the value of the property. This is known as the loan to value (LTV). Many hard money lenders will lend up to 65–75% of the current value of the property. What is most important to the lender is the loan-to-value (LTV) ratio. The LTV is a financial term used by lenders to express the ratio of a loan to the value of an asset purchased. Most lenders will require 10% to 15% down payment of purchase cost while financing 100% of the rehab cost. Lenders that do not require a down payment usually fund at an ARV of 70%. The ARV is the after repair value and is what a home is worth after it is fully repaired. If a home’s ARV is $200,000 and it needs $25,000 in repairs, then the 70 percent rule states the lender will finance up to $115,000. ($200,000 x 70% = 140,000 – $25,000 = $115,000.)[
