Hard money lending – the basics, revisited

So let’s talk about some of the many benefits to a hard money loan. But first, let’s go over the basics. You may recall that a hard money loan is a form of asset-based borrowing that deals with real estate financing. Some borrowers also pursue California hard money loans when their financing needs are more pressing and when more traditional and conventional financing sources cannot respond.

So, in many cases a hard money lender California will offer a smaller loan size based upon a lower Loan To Value Ratio. This only means they may opt to loan no more than 65% of the property value. Therefore it is more common for real estate investors to offer additional real estate as collateral in order to obtain a larger loan amount. This is known as cross-collateralization. Add that to your glossary.

Then, it’s simply a matter of contacting them with your idea or offer of investment. They’ll invite you into their office where they’ll give you free donuts and make you feel at home so when you discuss all the grimy details of this loan type, you don’t feel uncomfortable.

Don’t think too much when dealing with these types of loans. Remember, they are designed to be simple, even when they cost a little more than the average guy down the street. Furthermore, don’t let yourself be worked around by people who use a bunch of fancy words to confuse the snot out of you. You want your hard money lender to be someone you can trust just like your friends, because you’re dealing with some very risky number crunching.
