Hard money loans aren't for everyone, but, those with less than stellar credit, needing a quick loan, wanting to fix up a property, all fall within the parameters of why hard money is beneficial.
If a Borrower qualifies for conventional or traditional financing, I tell them. Not only is it legal but it is the right thing to do.
However, what about those who want to buy a dump property and fix it up?
What about the home buyer who was just turned down by
their bank for a home loan yet they are already in Escrow and need a loan quickly so they don't lose out on that house? What about someone with a bankruptcy within the past couple of years?
A Hard Money loan is the answer.
There was a good blog posted by Trust Deed Capital in August called “Quick Hard Money Loan Structure Explained”, that explains in pretty good detail what hard money is and how it is beneficial (link to article below).
