A highly experienced developer in New Jersey wanted to acquire a waterfront commercial office building. Despite his near-perfect credit, several banks had declined him for a conventional loan because of their conservative stance on development projects. By leveraging the developer’s other assets and his excellent track record, he was able to receive commercial financing for his acquisition through hard money loans. The lender saw great value in the real estate and was comfortable with other collateral that the developer had offered. The developer paid a higher interest rate, for a short-term, but was not concerned since he was able to get the loan approved and funded quickly. Lower long-term re-financing was possible once the project was stabilized.
