Private lending is a popular alternative to conventional lending due to the numerous advantages offered over bank-financing arrangements. Here are some of the advantages to private financing.
EASIER TO QUALIFY
Private loans can be a great option for individuals who are unable to qualify for a traditional mortgage. This may be due to being self-employed, having challenged or no credit, or a result of carrying a high debt servicing ratio. Private lending is more property focused rather than person focused, which allows individuals access to financing that is otherwise unattainable elsewhere. Simply put, it is primarily based on the equity of your home.
SWIFT APPROVAL AND FUNDING PROCESS
Trying to secure loans from a financial institute can be extremely difficult due to the long administration process and mountains of documentation required. Private lenders are able to act quickly, allowing you to receive funding and move forward. Time is money, and having capital when required can be invaluable for situations that require quick funding.
Investors who invest in value-add properties, or ‘flippers’, can benefit greatly from the fast funding for purchase of properties or renovations. Private lending allows for investors to act within a short time frame and have access to funds immediately rather than having the banks only fund up to a certain amount for renovation costs. Additionally, the funds are most disbursed by the banks after the renovation is completed, which does not work for most clients. The flexibility of deal structures in private financing is advantageous when a flipper is looking to move in and out quickly, offsetting the higher rates charged.
FLEXIBILITY OF TERMS
Unlike conventional mortgage institutions, which are more rigid due to the vast number of rules, regulations and procedures, private lenders are able to tailor the deal for every individual. Private lenders typically do not charge prepayment penalties as payments are interest only. The mortgage can be prepaid for the term so you will not have to worry about a monthly payment. These are some of the numerous ways a private lender can contribute to your success.
Every individual or business faces their own challenges, and may require unique solutions. Private lending can be the solution to your financing needs.
