What is a hard money loan

Real estate investors looking to purchase an investment property sometimes realize they need outside financing. When this happens – they absolutely need to find funds in order to complete the purchase of their property. Not every investor can pay the full amount of cash for their investments – and they need a creative way to get financing for their deal. One of the ways you can get that funding is through a hard money loan from Zogby. These are loans that are defined as financing based on assets – in which a borrower gets funds which are being secured by a tangible asset,  such as land/property.

How are they different from traditional bank financing

These are different because they allow the borrower to fund deals faster than a traditional bank. Investors can receive funds in 7-10 days. It allows an entrepreneur to be nimble and fund his project ASAP. The ability to have funds quickly puts a real estate investor at an advantage over their competition. Having a hard money loan allows you to buy more properties, do more deals, and earn higher profits.

Hard money loans last up to 1 year, and monthly interest payments are made on the loan until it’s paid off. Hard money loans are used to lend on non-owner occupied properties. Most hard money lenders will lend on the ARV – the after repair value, of the property. This is a very important metric, and is a determining factor when a lender look at the quality of the property, and whether or not to invest.
