What is Transactional Funding?
Transactional Funding is a way to fund a transaction for a very short period of time at a much lower rate than a traditional hard money loan. These transactions are also known as "A-B and B-C" transactions with party "A" being the seller; party "B" the investor; party "C" the end buyer of the property. Transactional funding allows wholesalers of real estate to satisfy title company requirements for actual cash funding from all parties. In the past, many title companies and law firms simply allowed the end buyer's funds to close both the transactions. Laws and rules have changed and the use of the end buyer's funds for the entire transaction is no longer allowed.
The lender I represent charges a flat 4% funding fee for transactional funding services. There are no other charges to the customer.
