It’s no secret that commercial real estate is a lucrative and widely-accepted investment strategy for those looking to amass wealth and diversify their holdings. Although real estate investment trusts and, more recently, real estate crowdfunding operations, allow for a more hands-off approach to investing, the vast majority of investors still favor direct ownership of investment properties.
Investing in commercial real estate is not a picnic, though. It takes a lot of time, patience, and paperwork to finance an acquisition. Investors often face difficult cash flow scenarios at a critical juncture in the investment process due to the length of time it takes to obtain funds. A hard money loan may be the best option for an investor in such a situation.
Commercial real estate investors can take advantage of the short-term nature of hard money loans to fund an investment opportunity. Hard money loans have traditionally been used by investors to make repairs and improvements to a property before selling it again for a profit. However, this type of financing is also useful for acquiring property quickly while the primary financing is being negotiated with the lender.
There are benefits to getting a hard money loan over a more conventional loan, but these loans are not without their drawbacks. Hard money financing is a type of loan that is typically issued by private lenders as opposed to large financial institutions. For hard money lenders, the value of the property is the most important factor in deciding whether or not to make a loan.
