Rehab loans help real estate investors fund the purchase and renovation of residential properties. They’re used by both short-term investors to fix-and-flip properties as well as long-term investors looking for renovation financing for rental properties. Rehab loans combine a property purchase and rehab costs into a single, short-term loan with quick funding times and interest-only payments.

How to Apply?
There are generally 2 types of rehab loans; hard money rehab loans and permanent rehab mortgages. Short-term investors use hard money rehab loans to purchase a property quickly, renovate it and sell. Long-term investors also use them to rehab and season a property before refinancing. Permanent rehab mortgages are used solely by long-term investors.
Smaller, local hard money lenders will typically offer a wider range of rates, fees, terms, and qualifications because they’re able to work with unique projects and borrowers. National lenders, on the other hand, generally have standardized costs, terms, and qualifications.
