Feb 4, 2008
Most seasoned real estate investors face situations where they require more money than what the traditional lenders will lend, and here is where real estate investing with hard money loans given by the specialized lenders is useful.

The hard money lenders are actually private money lenders who provide money for a short term. These loans carry a strict repayment schedule. It is given the name as hard money on account of its strict nature. The rates of interest of such loans are also higher than the market rates, and the fees charged upfront, range between 4 to 10 points.

The money lenders of hard money give the investors the access to the capital that is asset based, wherein the loan amount is secured by way of a collateral security. The rate of interest ranges between 14 to 18 percent annually and the term of the loan is normally six to twelve months.

Along with the property as collateral security, the hard money lender requires can require credit reports and well as documented experience in previous deals you have done. The lenders indulge in inspecting the property and making appraisals, before approving the loans.

The lenders of hard money study the intent of the investment on part of the investors, the strategy of exit that is adopted, the information of the property that is provided such as the residential or commercial nature of the property and also check the credit ratio of the concerned borrower. The financial strengths of the borrowers play a vital role in securing the loan.

The fees that are charged are dependant on the risk factors and the quality of the real estate deal. The plans of using the money set by the investors are also carefully studied by the hard money lenders. Hence, it is recommended that the borrowers provide a proper business plan for securing the hard money loans. They need to convince the lenders about the low risk nature of the concerned investments.

The conditions and the terms of approving real estate investing with hard money loans, vary for different lenders. The investors have to find the perfect lenders suitable for them, and ensure that they keep a good relationship with them.

Such types of loans are useful for procuring or purchasing properties. They are also useful for the buyers having low finances, against those that are required for the project, but have good fixed incomes.

Some of the lenders of hard money have choices regarding the type of the real estate investments, such as rehabbing houses, purchasing houses and the options of lease purchasing.

It is easy to lose a potential deal for lack of finances and hence, maintaining proper relations with the hard money lenders is a priority for the investors. The support of such money lenders is very important for the investors if they want to complete the real estate project in a proper manner. Good relations with lenders are a blessing in disguise for the investors.
