This BLOG On Short Term Private Money Loans For Real Estate Investors Was Updated On May 10, 2017

Private Money Loans are loans funded by Lenders to real estate investors who need funding quickly. Private and Hard Money Lenders are also known as short term commercial hard money lenders and are known to be able to close and fund a loan in two to three weeks.

Here are the types of real estate investors and rehabbers who benefits most from Hard and Private Money Loans:

  • Real Estate Property Investors And Rehabbers with less than perfect credit
  • Borrowers who cannot document income due to their self employment status. 
  • Private Money and Hard Money Lenders are very aggressive in lending money to those who need short term financing.
  • They are unlike bankers or traditional commercial mortgage lenders .
  • Private money lenders have an open mind and understand that real estate investors will do everything possible to write as much off as they can, therefore, showing substantial income can be a problem.
  • Most private money loans are no income verification: Lenders do not go by the borrower’s income and credit but will underwrite the property.
  • Lenders understand that real estate investors can go through times of rough time where their credit get dinged and fully understand self employed borrowers where they can write off many expenses but that does not mean they do not make income. 
  • Most upper management staff and officers of hard money and private lending companies are investors themselves where they fell victims to the 2008 real estate and credit meltdown. 
  • When lending, private money lenders will take into account the overall financial and credit profile of the private money loan borrower. 
  • Low credit, prior bankruptcy, prior foreclosure will have less impact when approving a hard money loan borrower than skin in the game. 
  • By skin in the game, hard money mortgage lenders want to see a substantial down payment from the hard money borrower such as a minimum of 25% down payment or more.
