Financing a residential or commercial investment is quick and easy with hard money lenders. Here are some quick facts about hard money lenders so you can know what’s best for you.
If you’ve ever bought a home then you’re familiar with the guidelines and qualifications you had to meet in order to secure a lender. There was a ton of paperwork just to get started, then you had to get your prequalification, and then work with a lender to determine the best loan for you. Hard money lenders are more simple in their determination of loan funding.
Below you’ll find some facts about hard money lenders that you may not know.
They don’t fund traditional loans per se
Arizona Hard money lenders aren’t looking to fund owner-occupied properties, though some may from time to time. For the most part they want to fund opportunities for residential and commercial investments that will pull in a bigger return. Just as the investor is looking to make money, so are hard money lenders, just like traditional banks. The main difference is that they will fund that money quicker because it is an investment and they know that investors can’t wait for funding to come through.
They aren’t working with secondary mortgage markets
Arizona Hard money lenders are giving you, often times, their own money. Unlike traditional lending institutions your loan won’t be sold to Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae. Your money is coming from an investor, much like yourself, and they will see that loan through. That’s why their requirements for eligibility are different from those of big banks.
Eligibility is based on property, not owner
You won’t be asked to fork over tons of personal financial information by a Arizona hard money lender; instead, they’ll want to know more about the property. They’re investing in the opportunity and want to know that the risk is worth the loan. That’s why they’ll want to know your plans for the property so be prepared to answer questions such as that.
Short term loans is the name of the game
If you’re looking for a 30-year loan, this isn’t the place for you! Short term loans are what hard money lenders specialize in and that’s because they need to be able to free up their money for more investments. You’ll usually find loan terms somewhere between a few months and two years. The repayment terms will be negotiated between the lender and the borrower.
