Stonecrest Line of Credit Private Loan Program

Stonecrest is one of the few private lending companies in California offering a private money line of credit. Our line of credit loans can be secured by a 1st or 2nd trust deed up to 65% LTV. The property can be owner-occupied if the funds will be used for the homeowner’s business. We can even cross-collateralize with multiple property types. A line of credit is a flexible loan, made to an individual or business, secured by real estate. Since you only pay interest on principal drawn when needed, your effective interest rate for our loan is substantially lower than a typical private hard money loan. Instead, you would have access to a predetermined amount of funds that you can use when and how you wish. You’d access the funds as you need them, repay immediately or over a specified period of time, and only pay interest on what you use.

Great mortgage broker.

Todd is a great mortgage broker and extremely helpful! I’ve utilized his services 5 or 6 times and will continue to do so as long as he is doing loans.

Changed my mind about Private Loans.

It was an unbelievably great experience dealing with Stonecrest and Tod . I totally changed my mind about private loans.

Khosrow Onbirack

San Jose

I've worked with Doris and Stonecrest for about 5 years on a number of purchase transactions that require Bridge Loan financing. They are the BEST at what they do-offering solutions for home buyers to use their equity to make non-contingent offers to get into contract on a new home before having t sell their current home. Doris ensures that the loans close in 21 days if needed, and the team at Stonecrest makes the entire transaction as seamless as possible. I highly recommend their products an services that also include commercial financing and investor equity line of credit.
