You, as the private money lender can benefit greatly from investing your capital. A real estate mortgage/ deed of trust provides you with security instruments you would not get with other investments. You also have added layers of protection because of how we buy, and because you have recourse available to you in case we were to default on the loan.
We currently pay 4-5 times what a typical bank CD is paying. Our rates will fluctuate very little all depending on the purchase price and rehab involved. The lower the price we pay for a home, we can pay a little higher rate to make sure our lenders make it worth their time. Private lending means you can relax while the money is in a truly safe place, working for you.
Our equity is built in the purchase of the home, where we are buying 30-40% below a retail buyer – that creates instant equity at purchase. Also, in a typical transaction, we cut out the middleman cost, such as: commissions, mortgage broker fees, loan fees; and our attorney costs are also lower because there is less work for them to review.
Because of our buying strategy, we are able to offer our buyers a fully renovated home at or below everything else in the neighborhood. We walk away from hundreds of “close” deals that do not meet our specific buying criteria, and simply won’t buy unless it makes sense for everyone involved.
