A hard money loan is a mortgage secured by real estate and funded by a private lender. These loans are usually for a very short term and a good fit for business people who need to get funding for an investment property quickly.

In Costa Rica getting a real estate loan approved as a foreigner is extremely difficult and takes an inordinate amount of time. Many foreign property buyers have used hard money loans to purchase a vacation home or their primary residence in Costa Rica.

This was necessary because of a lack of credit with a local bank. In Costa Rica, to be able to apply for a home mortgage, you have to be a citizen or a resident.

At Costa Rica Mortgage Solution, we will connect you with a U.S. lender who is able to refinance a hard money loan for you in record time. As soon as you apply and complete all the necessary documents quickly. AND with no upfront fees!

The differences

When you refinance a hard money loan or a bank loan, you’ll be giving yourself the following advantages:

  • In general, the interest rates of a hard money loan are anywhere between 10% to 20%, while our lender will be much and much lower than that.
  • The length of these loans is usually only from 1 to 5 years while your new loan will be from 10 – 30 years.
  • Hard money lenders will probably not finance more than 50% of the loan needed (LTV). Our lender will lend a much higher Loan to Value than that.
  • Conventional lenders (banks) will ask for documents, and then more documents, and then again more documents. When you think you are done, they will need another document. This process can take months to complete. We’ll have your pre-qualification within 1 working day. Get pre-qualified before you shop! And closing: 4-6 weeks after receipt of all documents.
  • Sometimes, banks take too long to close and you have to get some documents reapproved since they generally expire within 90 days. This is an additional expense, and many buyers become so frustrated they just walk away.

Are you interested in refinancing your hard money loan? Then you should start to explore obtaining a lower fixed rate mortgage as soon as possible. This should give you the long term solution you desire and save you thousands of dollars in payments.
