Private Hard Money Loans are often utilized
when: time is essential, the project or property does not meet the
criteria of conventional lenders, credit issues, bankruptcy, judgments, foreclosure, back property taxes, deferred maintenance, IRS, etc.
In order to interest a Private Money Investor in financing a project the borrower must be willing to adhere to the basics of Hard Money Lending. The
term "Hard Money" actually derived from the idea that the Project is
hard to finance, not that the Lenders are Hard to work with.
