What to Expect When Using Private Lending in AZ

Martin Boonzaayer

December 4, 2019

Many investors rely solely on private lending to purchase properties. You can go for this method, or combine private loans with traditional bank financing to get the capital you need.

If you have not worked with a private lender, we can help you understand what to expect when using private lending in AZ. 

We have put together a few things you should know about private lending. Ii may not work for everyone, but for real estate investors, private lending can be just the thing they need to see great profits.

Here’s what you can expect when using private lending in AZ

Typically a less stringent and faster approval process

Many investors are attracted to private money loans as the ability to qualify is often much more lenient. Private lenders are looking more at the project you want to finance, then they are at you.

The loan is typically backed up by the property being purchased. This allows people with lower credit scores to still have the ability to flip a home. If the lender sees very clearly that you are making a great deal, they will be quick to finance you as they know they will see a timely return.

Expect to repay the loan quickly

A typical mortgage will take around 30 years to repay. A private money loan is typically paid back in months, not years. Private lending is usually expected to be repaid over a short period of time.

Private lenders expect quick returns, they aren’t set up as a bank is, where they can be paid back over the course of 20 years. This is ideal for someone flipping homes. You can get quick access to the cash you need, and be expected to pay it back quickly too.

You should prepare to pay a higher interest rate than you would with a bank

What to Expect When Using Private Lending in AZ

Typically a private money loan will require less red tape and be less time-consuming. Because of this, private lenders often require a higher interest rate. Rates are sometimes double what you see at the banks. (This is another reason to pay the loan back quickly.)

If you plan on holding the property for more than a couple months, you can always opt to refinance with a traditional loan from your bank.

Often times, investors will see a greater benefit in taking a loan with a higher rate in exchange for the speed and convenience they receive. Working with a bank can become a long and drawn out process, and by the time your financing is approved, the property you were after could be gone.
