Phoenix Arizona Hard Money Lender
Many first time investors are curious about hard money lenders in California. Here I have laid out some of the basic principles about hard money lenders California. First of all, you must know what the term “hard money” means. When money is discussed between investors, it is considered to either be “soft” or “hard.” Typically, soft money is easier to qualify for and the terms are flexible. California hard money, on the other hand, is just the opposite. It is much more restrictive. Not in that it’s more difficult to obtain, but the terms are very specific and much stricter. They have to be, because most hard money comes from private individuals with a great deal of money on hand. This is why hard money is also referred to as “private money”. The money used for investment purposes comes from people, just like you and I, not a typical lending institution. So their first priority is to protect their investment capital. This is why the terms have to be so strict. If it were your money, you would want the same.
So what are some of the terms of private money lenders California? Obviously it varies from lender to lender. It used to be that private money lenders California would lend solely based upon the deal or property at hand. They would only lend up to a certain percentage of the fair market value of the property, that way in the event of default, the hard money lender California would profit handsomely if they had to foreclose or sell to an end buyer. Now, you will find that many hard money lenders, if they want to stay in business, require more than just equity to qualify. This is because the laws now are favorable for consumers. Consumer protection laws, time consuming and expensive court procedures, and so on have forced some hard money lenders to become even harsher when applying for a loan.
