Valid Reasons to Use Residential Hard Money Loans

Whether you’ve been going through a foreclosure in the recent past or want to buy an unconventional property to turn into your dream home, finding financing can be a real struggle for you. Even qualified borrowers can find it difficult to secure the loans that they need in order to buy residential properties in today’s market. For investors and borrowers who don’t meet conventional lending requirements, finding financing might even seem impossible. Thankfully, hard money loans are a viable option for residential buyers with unique needs. Hard money loans also known as equity-based or private financing which have long been used by real estate investors who want to purchase properties traditional lending institutions won’t finance. However, hard money loans can also be used by residential buyers who want to purchase homes or investment properties.

• Buyers have a mortgage on another residence.

• Buyers need to finance purchases quickly.

Hard money loans are utilized by many different types of Borrowers because of its flexibility. Many real estate investors prefer to use hard money loans because they find properties that they want to buy and don’t have time to wait for approvals through traditional financing institutions. Other investors opt for these types of loans because they want to buy properties that must be rehabbed or are viewed as high risk by lenders due to their location or use history. Individuals who have been through foreclosure or bankruptcy may also be able to use hard money loans to purchase residential property.


Buyers who are considering using a private lender enjoy options that traditional lending institutions don’t offer.
