Generally, borrower’s credit score is taken into consideration when underwriting a loan. BLN reviews the individual’s history to determine if there is a repeating pattern of poor financial management or if an isolated incident affected the individual’s credit. We also look at the borrower’s credit in terms of the exit strategy., if the borrower intends to buy and hold rather than fix and flip the property, we will pay closer attention to FICO scores.

Be Remarkable Group does not charge any upfront fees during the pre-approval and approval process such as an application fee. However, the borrower is responsible for third-party fees such as appraisals or project feasibility studies.

Industry Terms

 

Hard money loans are a specific type of asset-based loan that is typically secured by real estate. At Be Remarkable Group, loans are backed by non-owner occupied residential real estate or small balance commercial real estate. In some cases, multiple non-owner occupied properties are cross-collateralized in order to secure the needed loan amount.

Commercial loans are used for business purposes, rather than individual or personal interests. At BRGl, we only make commercial loans that are secured by non-owner occupied residential and commercial real estate.

A bridge loan is typically interim alternative financing used by a business until more conventional financing is secured. The bridge loan may also be used to cover short-term cash-flow issues.

A line of credit can be used for a variety of purposes, such as the funding of construction phases, specific business purchases or addressing cash flow needs.
