  • Top 5 Must Haves For Flipping Houses   Be a Good Deal Finder
    Top 5 Must Haves For Flipping Houses Be a Good Deal Finder "In order to be a successful house flipper, you have to be able to find good deals that can make you money on the flip. This means you have to weigh your purchase price and renovation costs against the future selling price. You also have to consider your financing costs, because the longer a house flip takes, the more interest you’ll have to pay, often on a hard money loan, which has higher costs than a conventional loan (for good reason). Often, a “good deal” doesn’t come in the form of a lower purchase price, as your renovation costs (labor, supplies, and interest) can negate any sort of bargain you may think you got. Learning how to find deals is a learned skill. Listen to house flipping expert Beau Eckstein as he talks about the critical component of being a good deal finder if you want to maximize your house flipping profits." http://reiloanpro.com

  • What Is Hard Money with Hard Money Expert Beau Eckstein
    What Is Hard Money with Hard Money Expert Beau Eckstein "Hard money, also called private money, is money that is borrowed from non-traditional lenders, like banks. It’s often in the form of short-term financing that is based on any equity that has accrued in a real estate property. Hard money is no longer just for people with poor credit – rather, it’s used for real estate investors who may need to close a deal quickly. Conventional lenders, like banks, may take weeks if not months to fund a loan. Hard money lenders can fund a real estate loan in a few days, sometimes even just a few hours. Of course, interest rates are higher, but the loan is of such a short-term nature that you may only pay 1 or 2 months of interest payments. Real estate investor and hard money lender Beau Eckstein calls hard money loans “opportunity loans” – they exist because conventional mortgage lenders cannot or will not move fast enough for savvy real estate investors. Watch the video. If you want more information about hard money loans, visit Beau’s website below: http://reiloanpro.com"

  • How Do I Find Hard Money or Private Money Lenders
    How Do I Find Hard Money or Private Money Lenders "In this video, hard money lender Beau Eckstein tells real estate investors how to find hard money loans from private money lenders. It’s really not as hard as it sounds. In fact, it’s often easier to get a hard money loan than it is to get a bank-financed traditional mortgage. If you want to find hard money lenders, Beau instructs you to attend local real estate events, including Meetups and real estate investment clubs. Hard money is more about the relationship than it is about the balance sheet. Of course, your strong personal balance sheet goes a long way to getting a real estate deal funded, but you don’t have to supply the loads of paper documentation like you would have to with a bank.

  • Hard Money Lending - Deal Structuring
    Hard Money Lending - Deal Structuring "As with everything in real estate, timing is critical and in order to make deals happen, you have to think outside the box. One way to think outside the box with respect to real estate is through possible funding of your real estate deals using hard, or private, money. Beau Eckstein talks about a novel way he funds real estate construction projects: By first getting an acquisition loan and then, when the property is “shovel ready”, getting a construction loan." http://reiloanpro.com

  • When Should a Borrower Consider Getting a Hard Money Loan
    When Should a Borrower Consider Getting a Hard Money Loan "When you need funding fast, you should consider getting a hard money loan. Private money lenders and hedge funds have gotten into the hard money game and it’s imperative that you establish a relationship with these non-traditional lenders so that you can jump on any good real estate deals you find. “Speed is the name of the game in real estate investing,” according to hard money lender Beau Eckstein. In a strong market like we have here in the San Francisco Bay Area, you need to have cash at the ready if you want to make the strongest offers. Often, the best way to come up with liquid funds is through hard money loans. Beau specializes in hard money construction loans." http://reiloanpro.com
