Instant Qualifier for Hard Money Mortgage Compliments of: www.mortgage-investments.com We recommend you read the notes below before you use this spreadsheet. We also recommend you print this page and refer to it as you use this spreadsheet. Enter the amounts highlighted in yellow. You can change the mortgage multiplier, safe LTV rate and interest rate multipliers if you wish. These are highlighted in red. WHAT THE MULTIPLIERS MEAN Allowing for giving second mortgages (mortgage multiplier) We do NOT recommend originating second mortgages. But there are times when it might be attractive. Here's how to minimize your risk. First you need to calculate the TOTAL mortgage you would give on this property. From this of course you need to subtract the amount of the first mortgage. But we recommend being a little more conservative than this. We multiply this first mortgage amount by 1.5 to provide a safety zone if we have to make the first mortgages payments whle foreclosing the mortgage. Example: Assume the property would qualify for a total mortgage of $80,000, If this was a first mortgage. BUT the borrower is getting or already has a first mortgage of $30,000. Would you want to lend the difference, that We think not. Instead we multiply the first mortgage amount, $30,000, by 1.5. This is $45,000. NOW subtract $45,000 from $80,000 to get the amount you should loan. That is, loan $35,000. Want to be more conservative about writing behind a first mortgage? Then increase the multiplier from 1.5. Want to be less conservative about writing behind a first mortgage? Then reduce the multiplier from 1.5.But it should NEVER b Or just DON"T make second mortgages! Loan to Value Ratio multipliers CREDIT HISTORY We allow a safe LTV for terrible credit of 60%. You can increase or reduce this as you wish. Want to be more or less conservative about the LTV, perhaps this is commercial or vacant land? Just change the number. We increase the safe LTV by adding on the 0 to 10 credit rating. You can increase or reduce that if you wish. For example: If the borrower has a credit rating of 5 we increase the maximum LTV allowed from 60 to 65%. Want to be more or less conservative about the effect of the credit rating on the LTV? Just change the Multiplier from 1. Example: If you set this multiplier at 1.5 then in the above secario you would allow an LTV of 60 + 7.5 = 67.5%. If you set this multiplier at 0.5 then in the above secario you would allow an LTV of 60 + 2.5 = 62.5%. DOWN PAYMENT We also increase the LTV based on the percentage CASH down payment made by the borrower. We feel someone who has put down, say 20% CASH, is much less likely to walk away from the loan than someone with NO CASH INVESTED. So if you would loan 65% with zero cash down, we think you should lend 75% with 10% cash down, other things being equal. Of course, make sure you NEVER loan more than the value of the property. Interest Rate Multipliers We reduce the base interest rate from 15% by a multiplier of the credit rating. You can change the base interest rate and this multiplier. For this example: if the borrower has perfect credit (10) then we reduce the interest rate from 15% to 10%. If however you change the Interest Rate Multiplier to 10 then under the same circumstances the interest rate would only go down from 15% to 14%. Likewise, if you change the Interest Rate Multiplier to 1, then, under the same circumstances the interest rate would go down from 15% to 5%. The interest rate will also go down if the down payment goes up due to the reduced risk to the lender. The Interest Rate Down Payment Multiplier will control the effect of this. Lastly, we believe that second mortgages should have a higher interest rates than first mortgage. You can set the amount by ho Remember to always stay within any laws governing predatory lending rates or usury rates! LEARN how to use this spreadsheet by starting with a 0 prior mortgage (you are then loaning a first mortgage), keep the base LTV at 60%, credit rating at 0 and the two credit score multipliers as they are set. Then seen the effect of having a first mortgage balance and of changing the credit rating of the borrower. Then try different multipliers and see the effect they have. Fair market value of property: Balance of existing PRIOR mortgages that will remain on property: Do NOT include mortgage that will be paid off with this new loan Cash buyer will be putting down Rate borrower credit from 10 for excellent to 0 for terrible: How many months to amortize loan over: (enter 2,000 for interest only) How many months before loan is paid off: (the same as above on normal, fully amortizing mortgage loan) We suggest you loan for a maximum of 120 months = 10 years. 63% safe LTV for worse credit before adding credit rate number. (Max. LTV for 1st 73%) Multiplier of credit rating for calculation of LTV. Multiplier of mortgage that will remain prior to you that you subtract from loan amount Add to LTV depending on % cash down New mortgage that would be safe to give: But you may want to make sure total mortgage not more than price paid for property.

We use 2.0. 2 Can be anything from 1 to 10. A value of 10 will minimize the reduction of interest rate to a borrower with a better credit rating. A value of 1 will maximize the pro-rata reduction of interest rate to a borrower with a better credit rating. Down payment multiplier to determine interest rate. We use 2.0. 2 Can be anything from 1 to 10.
