Private Money financing refers to loans collateralized by real estate, where the source of the funds used to close Real Estate transactions come from private investors.
The decision by the investors to make a loan is based primarily upon plenty of equity in the real property securing the loan thus reducing the risk of loss.
The ability to repay, and the borrower’s character is also considered along with how the borrower will pay the investor back in time.
Private Money loans are needed when a borrower or a property falls outside the standard underwriting rules of conventional lending sources like banks or other lending institutions.
The Primary Decision For Private Money Is Typically Based On The Simple Three–Four C‘s Of Private Money Lending:
- Capacity to repay the loan back
- Credit/Character of the borrower
- Collateral or property type
With risk of loss lessened, a loan may be a sensible deal from the Private Money Lender’s point of view, but it remains discarded to institutional lenders. To meet the continuing financing needs of these borrowers, an ongoing demand for private money has been created.
Mortgage brokers and bankers solicit and process these types of loans but the private investors are the ones that underwrite and close these private money loans.
After a loan request is processed and underwritten, the loan is funded by a loan investment product arranged by a Private Money Specialist. Private investments may come from individuals, entities, or pension funds. Your private money investor or a private servicing company will service each loan until it is paid off or the property is sold.
