Banking on Private Money: The Fastest Way to Secure Funding

If you are over leveraged at the bank or facing an immediate cash crunch and aren’t able to wait the month or more it can take to get financing from a bank, private money might be the fastest option for you. Most banks require that borrowers have credit scores of at least 620, but with private money, there’s no minimum credit score requirement and you can often get a quote in as little as 24 hours. Private money focuses on the merit of the property over the merit of the investor. Because of this, some private money brokers like Smith Robinson Funding can fund up to 100% of the purchase price, rehab and closing costs of your next real estate deal.  Whether you are new or a seasoned investor, private money can be a quick way to get into real estate investing or get your next deal done regardless of outside circumstances. Here’s how private money differs from traditional lending options, how to find private lenders, and when to consider getting funding through this avenue.


Private Money Loan Options

  1. You can get a private money loan from an individual or private money fund, rather than a bank.
  2. Private money loans are often secured by collateral, such as real estate or another asset.
  3. Private money loans can be used for a variety of purposes, including flipping, mortgages, and wealth building.
  4. Private money loans often have flexible terms and can be quick to secure.
  5. When considering a private money loan, be sure to consider the risks involved and the interest rate you will be paying.


What You Can Buy With Private Money

If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to get funding for your next real estate venture, private money may be the answer. With private money, you can buy fixer-uppers, foreclosures, and even rental properties. Plus, you can get the funding you need in as little as 24 hours. So if you’re tired of living paycheck to paycheck or working 9 to 5, consider getting your own private money loan.


Sourcing Funds From the Investor Community

If you have a time-sensitive loan or your money is tied up for the next 6-12 months in another property, private money may be the answer. Private money lenders are individuals who lend their own money, as opposed to banks or other financial institutions. They’re typically more flexible with terms and easier to work with than traditional lenders. And because they’re investing their own money, they’re often more willing to take on higher-risk projects.


How Much Can I Borrow?

You can travel the world and make six-figures while being your own boss–all you need is access to private money. But how much can you actually borrow? There are millions of dollars being lent by private lenders. With Smith Robinson Funding, we can help you get access to $100,000 to $5,000,000 in funding depending on your real estate deal.

With private money loans, you can typically secure funding with just a 10% – 15% down payment, compared to the 20% required by most banks. Plus, private lenders are often more flexible with their terms and are willing to work with borrowers who may have been denied by a bank.
