Private Hard Money

Private Money Financing (Minimum $100K)
Does NOT handle 1-4 family residential loans.
In order to interest a Private Money Investor in financing a project the borrower must be willing to adhere to the basics of Hard Money Lending.
The term “Hard Money” actually derived from the idea that the Project is hard to finance, not that the Lenders are Hard to work with.
Hard Money Lenders often will take higher risks and loan money quicker to Qualified Projects than the Conventional Lenders, at a higher rate, but the project must make financial sense.
The most important factor to a Hard Money Lender is risk of their investment and the collateral of the project.
