If you’re seeking money to do some property flipping, you may decide to go with a private money or hard money lender. They may seem similar, but there are significant differences between the two that could be better suited to your needs.
For starters, a private lender will evaluate your eligibility based on three primary factors: your ability to pay, your credit, and any collateral. As with a traditional mortgage, the private lender will closely evaluate your credit score while a hard money lender requires little to no credit. In the case of hard money, they are also less concerned with your assets and current income.
A major difference that’s often been discussed is time. Private lenders can take months to finalize or close on a loan. When it comes to flipping properties, time can be of the essence. New homes emerge, home values rise and fall, if you’re seeking the biggest bang for your buck, a hard money loan can close in a matter of days. You get the money you need to fix up that property and make a profit in as little amount of time as possible without having to necessarily deal with factors like income.
