Private Money vs. Hard Money – What’s the Difference?

Learn the difference between private money and hard money so you can make an informed borrowing decision.

In prior blog posts I’ve discussed the real estate jargon that all investors should be familiar with so you can talk the talk and walk the walk. There are two more terms that though they may seem interchangeable, they aren’t exactly the same.

Private money and hard money are two different ways to borrow money and I’m going to outline the differences below.

Hard Money

When you meet a hard money lender, it’ll be clear that lending is their bread and butter. It’s their business! That means they are ready to see your proposal and make a quick decision based on its merit. There are qualifications you’ll have to meet, but they are far less strict than those imposed by traditional banks. That means you don’t have to have a fantastic credit score.

Hard money loans are funded just as quickly as the decision is made! You can begin your fix and flip venture in some cases in as short as a week. Don’t miss a good deal when it’s in front of you!

Private Hard Money

Private money loans can come from anyone who has the money to lend. It can be a family member, a friend, or a company. It is a relationship-based lending scenario that can take time to develop because they aren’t a tried and true lender, they just have the means to do so if they so choose.

They may also ask for some stake in the real estate venture because they are taking on a personal risk. Private money loans can also take longer to fund, causing you to lose out on deals.

That’s why we recommend using an Arizona hard money lender for your real estate business, whether you’re fixing and flipping or need a short-term loan for your buy and hold property.

Rotten Credit – No Problem!

Here’s why an Arizona hard money loan might be best for you if you have poor credit and want to make a real estate investment.

Your credit score is incredibly important when it comes to obtaining long-term loans. While credit criteria make sense, there are times that investors wish it wouldn’t hold them back from making new investments and building their portfolio.

I’m here to tell you that an Arizona hard money loan may be the right choice for you if you’re struggling to build your credit and need fast funding to nab the right deal. We take more than credit into account and that’s why we can put more weight into your project proposal and previous investment history.

We can take a big picture look at you, rather than scrutinizing your credit score. Here’s what we’ll take into consideration to determine our ability to fund your proposal:

· Project’s ability to make money, allowing you to pay your loan

· Property equity

· Plan for the proposed property

· Investment history

Each of these categories speaks to your ability to use an investment to make money, pay back your loan, and be a successful investor.

We value your expertise in the field of investment and can look beyond a poor credit score to help you fund your next project. An Arizona hard money loan will not only fund quicker than a traditional loan, it can lead to other opportunities, as well.

We love working with successful investors more than once so we can offer incentives as you get more deals under your belt. At Level 4 Funding we take the time to get to know our investors and you’ll feel comfortable coming back to use for project after project in the future.

If you have questions about how to get started obtaining a Arizona hard money loan for a fix and flip property, a commercial property investment, or a situation in which you need a bridge loan to get you by, give us a call! We would love to set up a time to speak with you and learn more about your next project!

Why We’re a Top-Notch Hard Money Lender

Here’s why you should choose Level 4 Funding as your Arizona hard money lender for your next real estate venture.

Just like two properties aren’t the same, neither are two hard money lenders. When you’re deciding how to fund your next real estate venture, you want to be picky about who you borrow from, making sure your investment is going to be funded quickly, ethically, and in a way that will make you want to go back for more!

Here are some things you should know about your Arizona hard money lender before signing on the dotted line.

Clear as Mud

If you’ve presented your real estate proposal to your Arizona hard money lender, you’ll want to ask some questions yourself. Nobody likes hidden fees! When you ask the lender about what fees are associated with their loans you want to get the full picture and not be surprised the day of funding. This is why you should be interviewing your lender, as they interview you.

Too Good to Be True

Hard money lenders do what most conventional lenders can’t – they lend to investors who are unable to secure traditional loans due to stringent credit requirements and they fund quicker than big banks. That being said, if you’re coming across an Arizona hard money lender that’s promising everything and the kitchen sink, be wary!

Hard money lenders need to make money just like you do! They will be particular about which deals they choose to fund, and they will make sure it’s worth their time. If they aren’t asking enough questions, or asking the wrong questions, they may not actually fund their own loans, or aren’t concerned with the success of your transaction.

You always want your Arizona hard money lender to be on your side, providing full documentation, a list of fees, and provide you the revenue to make you both money. Here at Level 4 Funding we are transparent and are looking for investors who have a strategic plan in place, but just need the funds to make a move.

Contact us today to learn how we can help your real estate venture!

Will Your Property Appraise?

You’ll want to consider these things when choosing an investment property because hard money lenders will require an appraisal to fund your loan.

Hard money lenders have to protect their investments and one of the ways they do that is by performing a property appraisal to determine the value of the home before renovation, compared to after.

There are some steps you can take when choosing your fix and flip property that will help the home appraise and get your proposal accepted by a Arizona hard money lender so you can get that money in your hands to begin the project!

Great Location

If your real estate investment opportunity is a fix and flip, it’s important to have a property that’s in a desirable location to ensure you attract buyers easily. Check what type of businesses are in the vicinity of the property and distance from busy streets. Those both will have an effect on the value of the home and can determine your loan amount from the hard money lender.

Floorplan

This is one of the most important things to consider about your property. If you’re looking for a fix and flip you want to see it from that buyer’s point of view. Could you envision someone or a family living in that home? If you’re looking at a commercial property, is it set up to have cubicles installed if the renter so chooses?

Neighborhood Trends

Every city has trends when it comes to desirable neighborhoods. You’ll want to be on the nose with where the population is moving and how quickly those homes are getting taken off the market. If you’re looking at commercial investment property you want to know where businesses are thriving and sticking around through the ups and downs of the economy.

If you have a real estate investment opportunity and want to work with a Arizona hard money lender to make your dream come true, contact Level 4 Funding today and we can hear your proposal, appraise the property, and fund the loan quickly to get you on the way to earning real estate money!

Private Money vs. Hard Money – What’s the Difference?

Learn the difference between private money and hard money so you can make an informed borrowing decision.

In prior blog posts I’ve discussed the real estate jargon that all investors should be familiar with so you can talk the talk and walk the walk. There are two more terms that though they may seem interchangeable, they aren’t exactly the same.

Private money and hard money are two different ways to borrow money and I’m going to outline the differences below.

Hard Money

When you meet a hard money lender, it’ll be clear that lending is their bread and butter. It’s their business! That means they are ready to see your proposal and make a quick decision based on its merit. There are qualifications you’ll have to meet, but they are far less strict than those imposed by traditional banks. That means you don’t have to have a fantastic credit score.

Hard money loans are funded just as quickly as the decision is made! You can begin your fix and flip venture in some cases in as short as a week. Don’t miss a good deal when it’s in front of you!

Private Money

Private money loans can come from anyone who has the money to lend. It can be a family member, a friend, or a company. It is a relationship-based lending scenario that can take time to develop because they aren’t a tried and true lender, they just have the means to do so if they so choose.

They may also ask for some stake in the real estate venture because they are taking on a personal risk. Private money loans can also take longer to fund, causing you to lose out on deals.

That’s why we recommend using an Arizona hard money lender for your real estate business, whether you’re fixing and flipping or need a short-term loan for your buy and hold property.
