"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.
