email footerWhat is “Hard Money”?

  • Hard Money is a High Cost, High Interest, Short Term loan based on Real Estate.  We must tie the loan to a first mortgage (sometimes a second mortgage) on a Real Estate somewhere in the United States, preferably Hawaii.

Why would anybody borrow Hard Money?

  • In this industry, we say “There are only 3 reasons to do a hard money loan . . . time, time and time” – where a bank may take 45 to 90 days to get you $100,000 or $250,000 or $1,000,000 . . .  we do it in 15 business days.

What do you mean by “short term”?  How long is that?

  • Remember, we are a group of over 100 private lenders; all with different requirements.  Most consider short term to be 6 months or one year but I have some lenders that will do 5 or even 10 years (but not many). . .
