More than 14 million U.S. properties were “equity rich” – meaning loans secured by the property were 50 percent or less of market value in 2Q 2017, reported Attom Data Solutions, Irvine, Ca.  These equity rich have increased in total numbers by over 1.6 million homes in the last year and now represent over 24.6 percent of U.S. properties, which is up from 22.10% in 2Q, 2016.   “An increasing number of U.S. homeowners are amassing impressive stockpiles of home equity wealth, enjoying the benefits of rapidly rising home prices” said ATTOM Data Solutions SVP, Darent Blomquist.

This increasing Home Equity continues to provide fuel for Entrepreneurs and Self Employed borrowers looking to grow their business and make their dreams come true!  Why go to Shark Tank, Angel Investors, Venture Capitalists, Crowdfunding, Initial Coin Offerings or other high cost business credit when a hard money loan can provide fast capital at comparitively low rates?   Self-Employed or Real Estate Investor borrowers can pull cash-out of these equity laden properties to buy inventory, make repairs, add marketing budget, purchase additional plant and equipment or simply use for working capital.

When a borrower does not qualify for a Bank HELOC and needs the money quickly,  a business purpose cash-out loan fills the gap.  Following are a few recent examples of creative, hard-working and ingeneous entrepreneurs who are executing on big ideas with their Business Purpose Cash-Out loan:
