A method that you could use to significantly increase the investment funds that you have for your business is to put a mortgage up, or a business loan against your home. While I do not suggest this to be your first course of action, it should be said that it is one of the options that would provide you with the biggest form of investment.
The amount that you can receive in a business loan when putting your home against the loan itself is mainly decided upon the value of your home. The most your home is valued at by the lender/bank, the higher the loan you can take out. Of course, this is because there is a larger risk for you and a larger valued asset for the bank to be able to recover from you if you fail to repay the loan.
That is why it is important to get a real estate attorney involved before making any decisions with the bank. One example was when a relative of mine had used a real estate attorney Philadelphia based firm to not only take part in the valuation of the home itself, but also the laws and regulations surrounding mortgages and business loans with a home as collateral. They were able to quickly discover that the bank and lenders were severely undervaluing the home itself.
You should always investigate getting as much extra help as possible when it comes to such a large decision. If you are in the position where you may lose a property, especially your family home, then it’s important to make sure that you are able to repay the loan to begin with. But it’s just as important to make sure that the loan you are taking out is in standard with the home you are putting as collateral.
