Video: What Is a Hard Money Loan?

What is Hard Money? People ask me this all the time. A private money loan and a hard money loan are used interchangeably to mean the same thing. A non-bank loan, back by individual or private investment group instead of a bank. A private loan is typically faster and can fund in one day up to 30 days, depending on the complexity of the deal. More flexibility often means higher interest rates, from 7% to 18%.

The qualifications are less harsh, some lenders don’t even require a basic loan application or credit report, they just want to inspect the property. While others want to see nearly as much documentation as a bank, but can still move faster than a bank could. Collateral is the most important to a non-bank lender. You must have a real estate asset to use as collateral for this type of loan.
