Hard Money Lending Explained: 5 Things New Investors Need to Know

When most people hear the words’ hard money,’ it’s easy to make assumptions: Of course, dealers of hard money are charlatans who work on ripping people off their hard-earned income; hard money loans are for people who are desperate for some quick cash; Hard money loans end up with 6 feet tall loan sharks hanging the debtor by his neck.

Driving For Dollars: Why Investors Love Using LandGlide & DealMachine

Ten years ago, buying real estate properties was a bit easier. If you found a property in a listing, you could quickly contact the seller, make an arrangement, get your mortgage in order, and in due time, the property becomes yours.

Today, it’s a different ball game. Real estate principles are still relatively similar; however, the market has become so diffused that too many people bid for the same property within the same timeframe. With Hollywood idolizing house flipping and many authors advising anyone to invest in real estate, there is a lot of competition, and more people are entering the market.

6 Reasons Why Hard Money Loans Are Awesome For Flipping Houses

House flipping is a real estate business model where an investor buys a piece of property, renovates, and quickly resells for a profit. This business model, as opposed to the buy-and-hold real estate business model, works on the principle of cash-in, cash-out.

When you buy and hold property, you are determined on making money from such property on the long-run; however, house flippers are only interested in the short-term ROI (Return on Investment) of a property.

A real estate investor who works on a house-flipping business model faces a lot of problems, including what property to buy, when to buy the property, cost of property purchase, and renovation expenses. Many real estate investors have turned to hard money loans for funding for their house flipping businesses.
