A quick and easy guide to finding the correct hard money loan
 
Hard money loans can be a great way to finance a specific or fun real estate investment but the loan application process can be quite different from traditional bank loans. Many potential hard money lenders Texas aren’t prepared to apply for a loan. Don’t be one of the unprepared borrowers and you can do that by following these easy, simple steps.
Find the right project. Texas hard money is collateralized with the property in question so finding the right one is very important. A property valued in the right range may not be in a suitable neighborhood. Remember, rule number one is the old real estate standard: location, location, location – even if you flip a mansion, no one wants to live next to a crack house. Hard money lenders want to know that the property and the location are a safe investment.
Also, always have an exit strategy. Hard money loans are typically short term and usually are 1-2 years in length. The lender always wants to know that the borrower has a solid plan for either selling or refinancing the property long before the term is up. Knowing how you plan to repay the loan is a key factor in a hard money lender’s decision. If you are doing this all willy- nilly, you’re going to look bad in the eyes of everyone and no one wants that.
Finally, have the proper documents ready. Hard money loans are primarily secured within the property but also knowing about the borrower is very important. You may be asked about credit, income and assets. Like a boy scout, be prepared.
