Specialty Program Highlights

Our specialty programs provide flexibility and simplicity, making the home purchase or refinance process possible when other conventional programs are not a good fit.


Our Stated Income, No Income Doc programs allow for self-employed, business owners and wage earners to use alternative documents to establish their income to qualify for a mortgage for home purchase or refinance.

Depending on the loan scenario, up to 100% of the rental income can be used to cover the monthly mortgage payment, property tax and insurance. No other income is required or verified using this scenario, as long as the rental income from the new property is sufficient to cover monthly PITI.


The Bank Statement program is designed to help self-employed borrowers qualify by analyzing their cash flow.

A hard money loan is a type of loan that is secured by real property. Hard money loans are considered loans of “last resort” or short-term bridge loans. These loans are primarily used in real estate transactions, with the lender generally being individuals or companies and not banks. Hard money loans may be used in turnaround situations, in short-term financing and by borrowers with poor credit but substantial equity in their property. Since it can be issued quickly, a hard money loan can be used as a way to stave off foreclosure.


  • Hard money loans are primarily utilized for real estate transactions and are money from an individual or company and not a bank.
  • Hard money loans have terms that are based mainly on the value of the property being used as collateral, not on the creditworthiness of the borrower. Since traditional lenders, such as banks, do not make hard money loans; hard money lenders are often private individuals or companies that see value in this type of potentially risky venture.
  • A hard money loan, usually taken out for a short time, is a way to raise money quickly, but at a higher cost and lower LTV ratio.
  • Because hard money loans are not traditionally executed, the funding time frame is reduced immensely.
  • Terms of hard money loans can often be negotiated between the lender and the borrower. These loans typically use the property as collateral.
  • Repayment can lead to default and still result in a profitable transaction for the lender.
  • Hard money loans may be sought by property flippers who plan to renovate and resell the real estate that is used as collateral for the financing—often within one year, if not sooner. The higher cost of a hard money loan is offset by the fact that the borrower intends to pay off the loan relatively quickly—most hard money loans are for one to three years—and by some of the other advantages, they offer.
  • The cost of a hard money loan to the borrower is typically higher compared to financing available through banks or government lending programs, reflecting the higher risk that the lender is taking by offering the financing. However, the increased expense is a tradeoff for faster access to capital, a less stringent approval process, and potential flexibility in the repayment schedule.
