4. Mortgages Receivable
The Company offers secured, non-banking loans to real estate owners and investors (also known as “hard money” loans) to fund their acquisition, renovation, development, rehabilitation or improvement of properties located primarily in Connecticut. The loans are secured by first mortgage liens on one or more properties owned by the borrower or related parties. In addition, each loan is personally guaranteed by the borrower or its principals, which guarantees may be collaterally secured as well. The loans are generally for a term of one to three years. The loans are initially recorded and carried thereafter, in the financial statements, at cost. Most of the loans provide for monthly payments of interest only (in arrears) during the term of the loan and a “balloon” payment of the principal on the maturity date.
For the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, the aggregate amounts of loans funded by the Company were $64,742,552 and $42,078,191, respectively, offset by principal repayments of $43,347,362 and $24,641,469, respectively.
