The bank has just turned down your application, but you don’t want to give up on the dream just yet. So you need someone who deals with private hard money in California. How do you find that someone?
You’ve been a good boy for most of your life. You are honest on your tax returns, you stop at traffic lights in the middle of nowhere even if there is no one in sight, and you keep your word. But you haven’t always paid your bills on time.
So your credit rating is not the best. This, when combined with what the bank described as “insufficient employment history” caused your loan application to be denied. But the clerk sympathizes with you and can see how much starting your business means to you, so they tell you to find a lender who works with private hard money in California. The interest rate will be a lot higher, but at least you’ll get approved.
There is just one problem.
How Do I Find Private Hard Money In California?
Finding conventional lenders is easy, but it can be a little more challenging to find a private hard money lender. It’s not that there are so few of them and it’s hard to locate one. It’s quite the opposite. There are plenty of options out there. You just have to know where to look to find one—like the internet.
Everything is online these days. Run a search for whatever you need and thousands of options are likely to pop up. Going that route can be confusing though since you’ll get options from all over the world and anything that can relate to your search word. If you want to use the internet, you’ll have better luck searching for investment forums and chatrooms. There you will find people that will be more than happy to recommend someone (or warn you to stay away).
However, you don’t want just to pick someone off the internet because you can’t ever know for sure how good they are. Reviews are faked all the time so you can’t trust them to be 100 percent accurate. Companies will pay people to write false reviews on Yelp and other places.
Probably the best way to find a private hard money in California would be to ask someone or ask multiple someones. Talk to the people that often work with lenders who approve loans for private hard money in California:
• Mortgage Brokers: They probably have a few that they prefer to work with and can recommend when asked
• House Flippers: if there is anyone that will know of a good hard money lender, it will be someone that has used one or two themselves—like a house flipper.
• Real Estate Agent: Who works with more lenders and investors than a real estate agent? Few people do (if any). Like brokers, they probably have a few that they have developed a relationship with and feel comfortable recommending.
