The 3 Secrets to Finding Hard Money Banks to Provides Funds for your Housing Promotions

By Tim Tavender

I am often asked by investors in property that want to purchase wholesale deals how they can find hard money to use to purchase and fix the property.

Let’s commence with a quick description of what hard cash/equity lenders essentially are. They are lenders (often private individuals, but can be firms) that lend based on the After Repair Worth (ARV) of the property. Therefore , they are ideal to use when the condition of the property is such that a backer will be unable to get a standard loan. As an example, if the property requires a new roof, most traditional banks will not do the loan, but a hard funds provider will fund it if the property is being purchased for a giant enough discount.

Apart from providing the ability to purchase troubled property that requires work, hard money lenders also enable a customer to purchase a deal swiftly which is a duty when buying from a wholesaler.

Be advised that due to the lender’s risk in funding such deals, they do charge high rates and charges. It's not rare to find such lenders charging 15% interest and 2-4 points (each point is equivalent to 1%) on the amount. However , if you've found an adequate deal and you've got a sound exit strategy once the property is fixed, hard money lenders can be a handy tool in your arsenal.

Here are the most effective ways to these lenders in your area:

1. Networking – Network with other real estate investors in your neighborhood to find out who they may be using to pay for their deals. Go to financier meetings, e.g. REIA groups, in your neighborhood. Actually it is likely that your local REIA has corporate sponsors, and if that is so there's probably at least one hard bank among those sponsors. If you’re looking for funds swiftly and can't bear to wait to attend the following REIA meeting, you might try searching in your local REIA’s website for a listing of its company sponsors.

2. Web – There are a variety of methods to find these lenders on the internet. Begin by doing a search on a search site like Google. In addition, social network sites supply a superb resource for finding hard cash in your neighborhood. If you haven't already, join each real estate-related group you can find on social networks like Facebook and LinkedIn. After you join, check the postings as you might find hard cash banks that are advertising their services. If not, post a message on the wall or discussion board for each group asking fellow group members for referrals.

3. Information Supplier – Eventually, here’s a technique to find money lender using the power of a list provider, such as Melissa Info or First American Core Logic. Pull an inventory of absentee owners that have purchased property in your neighborhood within the past 6-12 months. Absentee owners are the entries where the tax records mail address and the property address are different. Be sure that your data provider can offer you the name of the mortgage holder (s) on each property. It might be a great idea to limit the list to properties that are more likely to be fixer uppers, so you don't want newer or even more costly properties. Consider restricting your results to those with a purchase price under an appropriate price point and built before, say 1990. Then, cull the list, searching for the lenders that have mortgages on these properties.
