Hard Asset Based Loans

Are You Eligible for our Hard Asset Based Loans?


Our minimum qualification are less than those of banks. We’re focused on getting you approved so your business can thrive with  Hard Asset Based Loans.

What are Hard Asset Based Loans

Hard asset based loans are a type of commercial finance when the borrower uses a real asset or real property as collateral to secure the loan. Therefore, a business loan that is secured by collateral or assets is an asset based loan. The use of the term “Hard Money” refers specifically to the risk associated with this form of business lending. As such, hard money loans are considered riskier than a traditional commercial banking loan and as a result will have higher interest rates.

  • Is There a Difference Between Asset Based Loans and Hard Money Loans?

    The reality is that by the nature of the loan a hard money loan usually is an asset based loan. Remember that the asset based loan is backed or secured by collateral or assets. The term hard money signifies the increased commensurate risk associated with this type of loan.

  • Why do Business Owners Use Hard Money Loans?

    If these types of loans are significantly more expensive than a traditional bank term loans, then why do business owners look for this type of loan? The reason is simple. They are easier to secure than the bank loan or traditional financing options. It is not uncommon for banks or credit unions to require stringent underwriting requirements including a high personal credit score, 3 years personal and business tax returns, detailed financial statements like P&L, and balance sheet to name but a few. A Harvard Business Review suggests that you must visit almost three banks and devote some twenty-eight hours to paperwork preparation to apply for a bank loan. This alone is enough to turn off the average, busy business owner.
