Hard Money Lenders in California

Source Capital provides hard loans for residential and commercial real estate in Arizona and California. We finance with direct private capital which makes sure that the process is speedy and flexible. Conventional money lenders like banks and other financial institutions take more time, usually months, and ask for personal and financial details of the applicant. Source Capital, on the other hand, asks only some pertinent details but mostly concentrates on the equity of the real estate that is pledged as collateral. Please call us today at 858.705.6144 to know more about hard money lenders in California.

Below is a brief rundown on the processes involved when you are trying buy a home in California:

Inspection of the Real Estate

Most buyers opt to have the house inspected by professionals. Typically, inspectors examine contractor inspection (includes electrical, plumbing, heating systems), pest (termite) inspection, swimming pool inspection, roof inspection, foundation and soil inspection. These inspections are necessary to reveal the defects, if any, so that you are fully aware of what you are dealing with after you buy the house. Sometimes, all defects are not revealed in the seller’s disclosure statement. Depending on the terms of the Deposit Receipt, you, the buyer, may request the seller to fix the defects or to provide funds that you may do so after the escrow is closed. You should choose competent inspectors and someone you trust, like your agent, should be present during the inspections. Source Capital requires a pest and roof inspection before the loan deal can be closed.

Title Report and Insurance

In California, the title of the property is searched by a company, which provides a preliminary report on the condition of the title for the buyer’s approval. The report includes information on present ownership, legal property description, any existing liens, easements, and other conditions, covenants and restrictions. A title insurance policy will be issued after the close of escrow. The title insurance policy insures the buyer’s interest in the real estate, along with the validity of the loan. The police act as a contract to protect the buyer against any loss through defects in the title.

Approval of Loan

After the buyer applies for loan, he needs to submit all the necessary documents for the assessment of his finances, taxes and the property he intends to buy. After the documents are processed and underwriting is complete, the money lender delivers the contract, underwriting and others to the escrow holder. The escrow agent ensures that the buyer has signed all the documents, and the seller signs the Deed a few days before the loan is closed. The buyer delivers the down payment to the escrow holder, and the seller transfers his down payment to a local bank before escrow is closed.

Close of Escrow

After all the terms are fulfilled, the escrow is closed and the Deed of Trust is recorded with the County Recorder. The escrow company notifies the buyer’s agent that the title is recorded and hence, the property officially belongs to the buyer. There is no need to have a final meeting as all the documents have been duly signed. After the escrow is closed, the involved parties will be given a settlement statement that will show the credits and charges for each party.

Source Capital makes sure that all these processes go as smoothly as possible. We work along with the buyer so that there is no possibility of disagreements. Our legal counsel in California ensures that all documents are up-to-date and authentic. For more info please Contact Us or call us now at 858.705.6144.
