What is Hard Money?
A hard money loan is a collateral based loan against a hard asset - typically real estate - and is often referred to as private mortgage or private mortgage note. Hard money loans are often used if a person is having a difficult time getting approved for a conventional loan. The approval process for a hard money loan is usually much more streamlined than with a conventional loan because hard money lenders don't have to follow strict institutional lending guidelines, and because they look mainly to the collateral as security for repayment rather than the borrower alone.
Hard money loans can be used for both commercial and residential properties and, since private lenders use their own money, they are able to create their own flexible lending terms that will meet both their and the borrower's needs. Another advantage of hard money loans is that they are typically closed very quickly and with little documentation. Of course, since these loans are usually "outside the box" and rates and fees are typically much higher than conventional loans, usually ranging between 8% to 15% depending on loan amount and terms; and fees and points usually range between 5% to 12% of loan amount.
If you are having difficulty obtaining conventional funding or simply need a loan closed fast with creative and flexible terms, then consider a hard money loan.
