Hard money lenders

Hard money lenders are those who specialize in real estate investing. They will normally lend up to 70% of the after- repair- value (usually said as ARV), on your property. Hard money lending is only a short term financing, and the interest rates are very high. It is sometimes 14% or more, but unlike with normal banks and their financing, Hard money lenders will get your funds to you fast. Normally this is sanctioned in installments as work is completed. Hard money is good for those who need to get funds fast to do a deal.
