Private Money for Real Estate Investing

The word “private money” is used to describe a few different types of lenders in different types of situations. You can obtain a “private money” loan from a friend or family member, for example. Not everyone has a close friend who can lend them the cash to purchase a home, however. For our purposes, we’ll discuss those private money lenders who lend money as an individual or as part of a group to fund a real estate investment. Private money loans are like hard money loans in that both weigh approval for borrowers based on the value of the home being financed.

Private Money Mortgage Candidates

The most common type of private money client we see are those who wish to renovate a home or homes, but who are not suited for conventional financing for such purpose. A private money mortgage typically has a much higher interest rate than a traditional mortgage because it poses a much higher risk to lenders. In addition to high interest rates, they usually require a larger down payment from a borrower than is required of a conventional loan.

You can apply for and secure a private money mortgage for real estate investment with minimal investigation into your personal finances. Rather than require that a borrower has excellent financial standing and great credit, private money lenders base their approval and their trust in the value of the property, which is secured by a note and deed of trust. When a borrower defaults on the loan, the property is sold to repay the loan.
