Arizona Hard Money Lenders are private lenders who fund loans without the use of a bank or mortgage company. Unlike traditional loans hard money is secured by an asset rather than the borrower’s personal credit.
Arizona Hard Money Lenders are either private individuals or private business groups who loan borrowers funds for short-term loans. The biggest benefit of these private lenders is that the loan approval is based on the value of the property being used as collateral for the loan rather than the creditworthiness of the borrower. This opens up a great opportunity for borrowers who cannot meet the stringent loan qualifications of traditional banks and mortgage companies.
The term of most Arizona Hard Money Loans is less than five years, making these loans perfect for real estate investors. The recent craze with property flipping has primarily been funded by Arizona Hard Money Lenders as they offer a simple application process and a fast turnaround on the approval and finding. Many banks can take up to several months to approve a loan application but Arizona Hard Money Lenders can approve and fund many loans in just about a week.
In addition to the fast funding, borrowers who have less than perfect credit look to hard money as a viable option for their funding needs. Being asset-based rather than credit based, many more borrowers can qualify for hard money. And because of their limited options for borrowing, they are willing to pay the higher rates charged for the hard money. In the end, it works out well for both parties involved as the lenders are being paid a higher interest rate for the increased risk of a borrower with a low credit score and the borrower has a resource that is less demanding than a bank.
The first real estate deal that most consumers think of when hard money is mentioned is a fix and flip. These are very popular but there are other used for hard money as well. Homeowners who are facing a foreclosure but have strong equity in their home can use hard money to pay off the original mortgage and avoid losing their home. This allows the homeowner the choice of remaining in the home and finding a traditional mortgage to pay off the hard money loan or selling the home at a fair price and paying off the loan. The second option is far better than the foreclosure as the homeowner will keep any profit rather than turning it over to the mortgage company in the foreclosure.
There are pros and cons to every type of loan and even to every lender. Before selecting a hard money loan, it is important to do your research and find the lender who offers the terms and services that you need at the best rate. Easy applications, fast funding and lower credit requirements are all great but realize that these benefits come at a price that you must be willing to pay to use a lenders money.
