Putting the right borrower together with the right source of capital – quickly and easily
By Don Logay
Here’s an all-too-frequent scenario for savvy real estate investors. An incredible opportunity has just emerged that could be the deal of the century, or at least, a substantial money-maker. The problem is, you’re not the only investor who sees this potential – so fast action on your part is paramount.
As for funding, it will take $2.9 million to close the deal. However, you currently only have a firm $900,000 at your disposal.
You also know that agonizingly slow and documentation-rich “traditional” funding – based on having a stellar credit score, a solid income history and being able to prove that you probably don’t actually need the money – is not going to be the answer in this particular instance.
Time is fleeting and you can practically hear your competition dialing the seller as you consider your options. So, what is one to do?
Experience and the Right Capital Partner
When a great opportunity is at hand, and both time and money are short, experienced real estate investors know how and where to access rapid funding – despite challenges ranging from a compromised credit score to being self-employed.
It begins with private funding and working with the right licensed broker who has great resources, flexibility and local market expertise.
When negotiated and obtained by an experienced top-tier broker, private funding and hard money lending can provide a wide range of flexible solutions for readily accessible capital specifically structured to meet your needs.
Working with the right broker, who has access to the best local market alternative lenders, begins with less stringent lending criteria and ends with a much higher approval rate than banks and other conventional lenders. It also allows you to access rapid funding when you need it instead of letting time-sensitive opportunities pass you by.
Instead of having to convince a bank that your loan can be repaid, a great broker – with a roster of locally-based private money lenders – will instead measure your investment’s potential. If they see evidence that you can make it work, coupled with your experience and previous successes, they’ll team with you to secure the rapid financing required.
