Frequently Asked Questions

Quick answers to our most commonly asked questions
“Hard Money” loans are private funds provided to borrowers, which are secured by the value of a property, as opposed to their creditworthiness or financial history. Hard Money loans typically have shorter terms than traditional loans, ranging from 3 to 12 months, along with higher interest rates.
People use Hard Money because many real estate investors need quick and flexible capital to secure a deal. Generally, banks and other institutional lenders are heavily regulated, have stringent lending requirements, and as a result, are unable to meet the needs of many investors. Typically, borrowers use Old North Capital in cases when they either do not have the time, credit, or patience to deal with a traditional bank. Hard money provides investors with an incredibly valuable tool, which ultimately gives them a distinct advantage over their competition.

Loan terms will vary depending on the type of loan you apply for. See our Loan Options page for specific information. On our most popular Fix & Flip loan, we offer interest rates of 12.9%, with 3 points, and a $595 document fee. It is important to note that we will only charge borrowers interest on amounts that we have actually disbursed to the borrower. For example, a borrower may be approved for a $200,000 loan but will receive $75,000 over time, for construction, as it is completed. If the borrower has not yet received any portion of $75,000, then they will not be charged interest on that amount. This allows our borrowers to save substantial amounts of money on interest for construction or renovation-based projects.
Generally, you will have to put down a down payment of at least 10% depending on the loan and the property.
Old North Capital bases Loan To Value (LTV) calculations on our in-house valuation of the property. The maximum LTV in most cases is 70%.
In most cases we do not have pre-payment penalties.
