Hard Money Loan Programs

Private Lending for Hard Money Loan Programs in Arizona

For those who are new to real estate investment, or who find themselves in an unusual situation with a bank that won’t lend when there’s plenty of liquid assets on hand, the term “hard money loans” is one that should be learned quickly.

What Are They?

Also known as “private money loans,” these are short-term loans usually obtained either from an individual or small group instead of a bank or credit union. They are intended to rapidly facilitate the purchase of properties or land, either as part of an investment venture or for individuals who have been unable to obtain funding through conventional lenders.

The Advantages

Hard money loan programs from Capital Fund 1 and other lenders like them have certain advantages over banks. First, turnaround time is usually rapid. While a bank might take multiple months or more to make a decision, a private lender can make a decision in as little as a week, and sometimes even faster. Unlike banks, the applicant’s credit score is never a deciding factor in approval of the loan.

When To Use It

There are a number of scenarios wherein private money loans can be incredibly useful. Investment properties, of the “fix and flip” or “buy and hold” varieties, are two good examples: 

   Fix and Flip Scenarios

  • Leverage your deal
  • Acquisition of a trustee or wholesale property
  • Use financing towards renovations

   Buy and Hold Scenarios

  • Acquisition of a new residential income property
  • Pull cash out to purchase another income property or to update your current one

A bridge loan is another example, where a person is able to get a bank loan after a private money loan, and then use that to pay off the private loan. There are other examples, of course, and we’re happy to discuss them and how best to make use of them.
