THE APPROVAL PROCESS
People turn to private money lenders for multiple reasons. A hard money lender can fund and process a loan much quicker than a traditional company. There are far less requirements than what you see with a bank or online mortgage lender. With this type of financing you’ll often submit less paperwork and have limited underwriting requirements. Secondly, a private lender won’t scrutinize your past credit history. Most private money lenders will base your approval on overall property value and future income.

It’s true that you have a lot to consider when it comes to finding the best private money lender. Don’t get overwhelmed and make a rash decision. Don’t simply agree to a private loan contract that another real estate investor says worked well for them. Be methodical when determining your loan amount and repayment schedules as that’s where most hard money lenders make their most money! The first step in your process is to make sure you even need a private money lender in the first place. We’ve touched on this exact topic many times throughout our site. But you will for sure pay less in fees and interest if you go with a traditional mortgage company that provides convention loans. The issue here is that sometimes you may not qualify because of a bad credit score or past lending issues. Or you may need funds quickly and don’t want to deal with the lengthy processing and underwriting delays we see with bank and mortgage lenders. Assuming you know what you’re doing, the second step should be to to find an actual direct hard money lender. You need a company that’s actually going to be the one providing you the funds. That way you can cut out the hassle of having your information sent to multiple different companies. Next you need to do your due diligence on the company you’re going to be working with. Are they licensed to provide a private loan on an investment property or owner occupied dwelling in Texas? Or can they offer conventional financing or even a construction loan? All these different lending options can make it difficult to narrow down your ideal company. Don’t agree or to or sign any contract until you’ve done the proper due diligence and have full confidence in your lender and appropriate financing solution. Take your time and find the best company for your situation. Be sure your lender is ready and willing to work with you on your specific financing needs.
