Ivan is right. 203k may be the way to go. We do these loans all the time. Give me a call to discuss.

You might be better off using a 203k rehab loan for the project. Hard money comes with high fees and interest rates 7 times higher that what the banks can offer.

Best of luck,

Based off of the criteria you may not need a private lender at all - I would like the opportunity to speak with you to assess if there are more traditional options. If not then I also have a Hard money lender who may be able to assist.

Lakeside Bank. Hyde Park Bank, Belmont Bank. All will lend if the project makes sense and you qualify for the end loan. You will have to use a licensed contractor, have plans and permits and do construction draws for payment.
You will probably need some capital over and above the equity you have.
Best of luck.
