I am doing a cash deal on a probate and need an extra $35k to close escrow within the next 30 days. I was just denied a personal loan. Ideas?

Asked by Hacksaw89, 90016 Thu Sep 1, 2011

I assume I could get a home equity loan or HELOC after closing to pay off an higher interest loans I would have now. I don't have cash flow problems so I'm willing to pay a premium to get the money inorder to close escrow. I just have no collateral. I'm a sole proprietor of a successful business but it is just under 2 years old. So some lenders won't look at cash flow loans. This is in Los Angeles.

Do you need court confirmation? Is there an Executor or Administrator that has full authority? You can explain to them how much you want this property, but you just don't have enough money and ask them if there is anyhing they can do? Who knows, maybe they will adjust the price, or maybe they will hold a note and allow you to make payments to them. It doesn't hurt to ask. You may even get a much better rate than if you got a hard money loan. I hope that helped.

You could also get loans against your merchant account if you have one. Also if ther is perceived equity in the property upon purchase, there are companies that will loan you the money to close the transaction, I think for a 1% fee, paid at closing. They are called "transaction funders"

Here is another hard money lender: Chris Inglis with Action Loan Funding: 818-404-6406. I have worked with him before and he did an amazing job for my client. You can use my name, if you wish. No one can have too many referrals to the "money guys"!

Sounds like you may be in the market for some private lenders....higher % and fees, but might get you through closing
