Things To Look Out For When Shopping For Hard Money Lenders

If you’re shopping for a Hard Money lender, here are some things to look out for. You want a real hard money lender, like Paces Funding. You don’t want a broker or a scam, right? So, take our advice and avoid a bunch of hassles. If you’re purchasing property in Atlanta, Nashville, Florida or the North and South Carolina metropolitan areas, just stick with Paces Funding. But if you’re outside our service area, use these tips to avoid fake hard money lenders.

Watch out for online directories. These aren’t actually hard money lenders. They’re usually just websites that will sell your information to brokers. Be careful of lenders who use non-corporate emails like Gmail or AOL. Make sure your potential hard money lender is a real person by checking for a working number, a valid address, and a functional website. If they ask you to fill out a logo that doesn’t provide traditional corporate information on it, be careful. Likewise, if they ask you to fill out multiple applications that are very similar, something might be fishy.

If a supposed hard money lender needs excessive time to respond back to you, they probably aren’t legitimate. Real hard money lenders know that a quick turn around time from application until financing is crucial. You might be working with a scam artist or just a broker who is trying to set you up with a genuine lender, with the intent to take a cut themselves. You don’t need scam artists or middle men. Legitimate hard money lenders exists and are perfect for many investment real estate financing situations.

If you own a property, either with no loan against it or with a low loan balance, you could be eligible for a cash-out hard money loan. Many people in similar situations use a hard money cash-out loan to reinvest in the real estate market, but that’s not always the case.
What to Ask Yourself to Find Out Whether a Hard Money Cash-Out is Right for You
In order to be sure you’re making the right decision, it’s a good idea to evaluate your situation before you apply for a hard money loan.

Ask yourself:

What’s my “exit” strategy? A hard money loan is a great source of financing, but before you apply for one, it’s a good idea to have a plan for the investment and for repaying the loan.
Is a short-term loan the right answer right now? For the most part, hard money loans last between 6 and 18 months, although the term depends on your circumstances. A hard money loan might not work for your situation, so make sure you evaluate your needs before you apply.
