The collateral for this first position trust deed is a 10.95 acres site that will eventually be developed into 165 townhome lots. Since putting the property under contract nearly 16 months ago, not only has the borrower “added value” by locking in their purchase price in a rapidly improving real estate market, but they have also added value by reducing risk in the project by getting the property fully entitled. Typically, FIG would sell each of the buildings to individual investors but have found one investor that wants the entire project. With that said, once the building permits are ready to be issued, the investor will close on the sale of the property and purchase it from FIG in one transaction. In the unlikely event the buyer falls out of contract, FIG’s regular investors will acquire individual buildings.

First Trust Deed collateralized by two acre parcel of vacant land located in the fast growing “West Henderson” area of Las Vegas, NV. Given the areas pro-development city officials, the area has seen robust growth in the past few years with much more development planned in the near future. Although the property does not currently have a zoning designation, it is the intent of the borrower to get approval to allow for industrial design manufacturing which has been approved on many parcels in the area. In addition to this new acquisition, the borrower also owns or controls over 170 additional acres in the area. One of the advantages of parcels in the area is that city officials would be willing to support both residential as well as industrial developments on the site.

First Trust Deed collateralized by a 1.38-acre parcel of land which has a 36-unit apartment building on it. It is the borrower’s intent to acquire the site and rehab the property to increase the net operating income, therefore, increasing the property’s value. Although there is much in the form of deferred maintenance on the asset, the borrower is well equipped to rehab the already partially occupied units. They will first begin the rehab on the vacant units and will not sign any rehabbed units to long term leases. This will ensure they will be able to rehab all units during the first 14 months of owning the property. Once the property is fully rehabbed and over 90% leased for 90 consecutive days, they will pay this loan off via long term financing. Master Loan Amount: $2,170,000 Yield: 10% interest is paid monthly in arrears with payments due on the 1st of each month with a 10-day grace period. Term: Nine months with two optional nine-month extensions at maturity. Final maturity date is 7/23/23.

"The evolution of hard-money lending has taken a long and fragmented path with products ranging across the spectrum... Against the backdrop of financial crises, demand for hard-money financing grew as collateral types and loan programs expanded, all while conventional financing retracted and conforming lending options narrowed. This set the stage for responsible lending opportunities and the continued evolution of hard-money lending into mainstream financing."
