Groundfloor Real Estate Lending FAQ

What if I want to repay my loan early?

You may repay your Groundfloor loan at any time. There is a three-month minimum interest required for prepayments within the first three months of your loan. After three months, there is no prepayment penalty.

What can I expect after my loan is approved?

Loans go into conditional approval, pending the borrower’s acceptance of Groundfloor terms and conditions. At the closing table, Groundfloor will provide the initial disbursement of funds. Once the property has been purchased and the project begins, borrowers receive draws payouts in the form of draw requests from a GROUNDFLOOR-held escrow account. Please note that draws are approved based on completed work. For a more detailed explanation of a loan’s lifecycle, please refer to our blog post on the subject.

What can I expect after I submit a loan application?

Once you submit a loan application to Groundfloor, a Groundfloor representative will contact you to get more details about your project and discuss terms. Then, the loan moves through processing, wherein you submit all required documentation to your assigned Groundfloor representative. Once this is completed, the loan moves into the underwriting stage before being cleared to close. You will receive communications and updates about the status of your loan from the Groundfloor team, but you are always welcome to reach out to your dedicated Business Development Manager should you have any questions along the way.

Our Operations Team can typically close a loan application within 10-14 business days. We will advise upon review whether the application is complete, or if we need additional information to complete the application.

Does Groundfloor charge me fees?

Groundfloor generally charges borrowers between 2.75% and 4% of the principal amount of the loan in interest for underwriting the loan. Borrowers' points and fees are financed into principal loan amount at closing, and interest payments are deferred until the loan repays. Closing costs are a total of $1,250, plus an additional $495 application fee, which is paid at the time of application and covers the valuation costs.

Once the loan closes there may be additional fees for servicing the loan should the loan mature or go into default.
