Asset Based Lending

Asset-based lending is a loan where the lending decision is primarily based on our opinion of the value of the real estate involved, rather than the credit worthiness of the borrower. While a borrower’s ability to pay the loan is considered, the approval decision and loan to value rests primarily upon the value of the property.

Asset Based Lending Details

Asset-based lending refers to a loan given to a company or individual based on the value of its real estate, rather than strict reliance on credit scores. These loans are often used for working capital, refinancing, debt consolidation, or financing for mergers and acquisitions.

The fees associated with asset-based loans vary based on factors such as the loan amount, the term of the loan, and the value of the property. It’s important to discuss these details with Larry the Lender to understand all costs involved.

Property Criteria

For asset-based lending, the property criteria can include a wide range of assets. In the case of real estate investing, this means commercial property, non-owner occupied residential property, and raw land. The key factor is that the assets must have significant value and be owned by the borrower.

Loan Terms

The terms for asset-based loans can differ based on the lender and the specifics of the borrower’s situation. Typically, these are short-term loans, but the duration can be adjusted based on the borrower’s needs and the value of the collateral assets. At Larry the Lender, most of our loans are for six or twelve month terms.

Additional Collateral

In cases where a borrower wants to borrow more money than an individual property is worth, they can put up other free and clear investment properties in lieu of down payment, or to secure a higher loan amount.

Borrower Criteria

The main criterion for borrowers interested in asset-based loans is having valuable assets that can be used as collateral. While a borrower’s creditworthiness may be considered, the primary focus is on the value of the assets, which in real estate investment lending, means the subject property or properties.

Appraisals / Insurance

Before an asset-based loan can be issued, an appraisal of the assets is typically required to determine their value. At Larry the Lender, we are usually able to establish value without a formal appraisal. Additionally, insurance may be necessary to protect against loss or damage to any property being used as collateral, if that property has structures upon it.

What Is Asset Based Lending?

Asset-based lending is a form of business financing where loans are secured by collateral or assets. In this lending arrangement, businesses can get a loan based on the value of certain assets like accounts receivable, inventory, machinery, or real estate. The amount of the loan granted is typically proportionate to a percentage of the asset’s value. This type of lending can provide businesses with the immediate funds they need for operations or growth. In the case of real estate investment, the only asset utilized is the real property owned or being purchased by the business.

What Properties Qualify for Asset Based Lending?

Both commercial and residential real estate properties can qualify for asset-based lending. Essentially, any property that holds significant value can be used as collateral for an asset-based loan. Undeveloped land, or individual lots can also be used as collateral.

Who Should Consider Applying for Asset Based Lending?

Businesses or individuals in need of working capital, those undergoing a transitional phase, or those looking to expand should consider applying for asset-based loans. This form of financing is especially beneficial for companies that possess substantial assets but face limited cash flow.

What Sorts of Projects Are Asset Based Loans Good for?

Asset-based lending can support various projects, property acquisitions, including business expansion, fix and flip renovations, operational expenses, restructuring, mergers and acquisitions, and even turnaround situations.
