Why Would I Use Hard Money From A Private Lender Like Northwest Private Lending?
When Hard Money Makes Sense
If you have both the time and ability to qualify for a conventional loan, NWPL will always encourage you towards this path. However, there are a few reasons why many people select the private lending path for their rehab financing, fix and flip financing, or other alternative financing needs.
- Time – If closing quickly is the highest priority, securing a hard money loan might be the right choice for you. For example: Purchase and sale deadline, competitive offers, bank foreclosure sale, auction, or quick access to funds for another investment.
- Reduced purchase price – Whether a pocket listing or bank-owned sale, a cash offer or the ability to close in less than 10 days can be required, preferred, or can get you a lower price.
- If the property is not lendable through conventional banking – Many times a great rehab project is in a state considered not lendable by most conventional banks.
- You can’t qualify – NWPL is a collateral-based lender whose primary focus is on ability to repay and a strong exit strategy. Debt to Income, FICO, and W2 income are not standard requirements for our loans.
