As with every profession—there are always a few ‘bad’ that ruin it for the many ‘good.’ And example of that is police officers. They have a reputation because of a few bad apples—same goes for Arizona Hard Money Lenders. In prior years some lenders were loaning money to exceptionally high-risk borrowers. Arizona Hard Money Lenders have always used the borrower’s real estate as collateral. However, these past lenders were funding deals in which the likelihood was high they would foreclose on the properties.
Today, these types of lenders are no longer in the market. Unfortunately, the disgrace they brought continues to create a stigma for borrowers that would greatly benefit from working with Arizona Hard Money Lenders.
A Arizona Hard Money Loan is a short-term loan ranging typically ranging from six to twelve months, but can be extended up to five years. They are secured by real estate and funded by private investors. The monthly payments are interest only payments —and the final payment on the loan is where it is due in full.
Arizona Hard Money Lenders are concerned with the value of the borrower’s property versus the borrower’s FICO score and income. Arizona Hard Money Lenders are able to finance borrowers that banks have rejected. This is because Arizona Hard Money Lenders don’t have to follow the rigid guidelines that are set forth with traditional banks. Because they are private individuals they are able to set more flexible loan terms.
Not all deals will work with a hard money loan. For example, if a borrower has good credit-without foreclosures and bankruptcy—and is buying a primary home, a Arizona Hard Money Loan would not benefit them. They will be approved for a conventional mortgage with 15-30 year loan terms.
Investors use Arizona Hard Money Loans for various reasons.
Mainly because of the insanely fast approval.
When an opportunity arises an investor has to move swiftly so not to lose the deal. Applying for a loan with a bank can take up to two months to get funded—compare that to the ten days it typically takes a hard money lender to approve a borrower. In real estate, investors are competing and receiving a quick close will secure their deal. Arizona Hard Money Loans are most ideal for: land loans, Arizona FIX AND FLIP LOANs, construction loans in Arizona and any borrower with bad credit or a new job. Arizona Hard Money Lenders can ultimately work with any borrower that has enough hard-assets to back the deal. You can find a local hard money lender in your area by googling them or attending a real estate investor club meeting. Find a lender that you can create a long-term relationship with. The more deals you make and pay back, the better your interest rate and loan terms can become. They aren’t the scary loan sharks from the movies—they want to help. When you win, they win.
