Hard money lending is an extremely popular form of short term financing for real estate investors looking to fund fix and flip, new construction or any projects outside of traditional lending “boxes.”

Traditional mortgages tend to place the most importance on the borrower’s credit score, but hard money loans place more emphasis on the value of the asset involved in the specific investment. A hard money loan is primarily used as a source of leverage for real estate investors looking to maximize their capital or as a source of financing that can be available quickly in order to capitalize on a time sensitive investment opportunity.
