Episode 67: Chicagoland Rehab Financing Without Using Hard Money or 203k Loans

Possibly the biggest consideration when taking on a rehab project is how to finance the deal. We’ve all considered hard money, FHA has their 203K loan program, and we’ve probably seen a late night commercial or two. Perry Farella of Prime Lending talks us through a loan program which is a cross between a conventional loan and hard money, something that you don’t even need to refinance out of once the property is stabilized. Listen in as Perry tells us more about this product and how it can be best used to fund your next Chicago rehab.
