Looking To Participate In The Real Estate Market To Earn Solid Returns On Your Hard Earned Dollars?
If you’ve been wanting to diversify your investments and participate in the real estate market with a trusted company, this page will help you understand your options in passive or semi-passive investing… including the option of Private Money Lending in Pennsylvania.
What Is Private Money Lending?
A private money loan is a loan that is given to a real estate investor, secured by real estate. Private money investors are given a first or second mortgage that secures their legal interest in the property and secures their investment. When we have isolated a home that is well under market value, we give our private lenders an opportunity to fund the purchase and rehab of the home. Through that process, the lender can yield extremely high interest rates – 4 or 5 times the rates you can get on bank CD’s and other traditional investment plans.
Essentially, private money lending is your opportunity to become the bank, reaping the profits just like a bank would. It’s a great way to generate cash flow and produce a predictable income stream – while at the same time, provide excellent security and safety for your principle investment. You can do what the banks have been doing for years…make a profitable return on investments backed by real estate. There is no other investment vehicle like it.
How Are Investors Protected?
Put yourself in the position of a bank by directing your investment capital, including retirement funds to well-secured real estate mortgages. Mortgages have ultimate safety because if default occurs, the bank (you) can recover the investment as the first lien holder on the property.
Each property is put through a rigorous evaluation process in order to assess the profitability before the property is ever purchased. We only want to make sound investment decisions. For your protection you are provided with the following:
- Mortgage or deed of trust is recorded at the courthouse
- Fire and hazard insurance on property
We conduct a title search of the property to ensure the property is free and clear. For a rental investment with a long term note, hazard insurance will always be kept on the property. You’ll be named as a mortgagee and notified if the insurance was not kept current. In the event of any damage to the property, insurance distributions would be used to rebuild or repair the property, or used to repay you.
The Private Lender Process:
Our approach is to purchase distressed properties that are well under market value usually 35%-55% below After Renovation Value (ARV). These properties are sometimes renovated and sold to retail buyers and landlords. Other times they are simply wholesaled to other rehabbers, investors and wholesalers.
Our Due Diligence:
We follow strict guidelines established by our team to ensure that the properties we purchase will produce great returns for our company as well as our investors. Every property we locate will go through a very detailed due diligence process. Some criteria that we consider:
- Location – every property purchased will be in a location where there is a high volume of purchases
- School District – we understand the importance of a school district when a buyer has children
- CMA – A Comparative market analysis is done by our team
- Purchase Price based Upon % of ARV [After Repair Value]
- Condition – Overall condition of the property, including mechanicals and structure
How Homes For Cash Buys Real Estate:
Equity is built into the purchase of the home, where we are buying 35-55% below retail value – this creates instant equity at purchase. 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.
The process is simple. We find an extremely undervalued property we want to purchase – and once you give us the green light, we borrow the funds from you to purchase and renovate the property. At closing, you receive a mortgage on the home along with other important documents. Next stage is the property renovation. Once the renovations are complete (typically 3-6 months depending on the size of the project), we’ll list and sell the property. When it’s time for closing, you’ll receive your principle plus 10% interest payment. It’s just that simple! The goal is to keep turning that money for you and keep you making substantial profits so you keep coming back to us – building a long term mutually beneficial relationship.
We have established a good reputation with various local and national: banks (REO Departments), asset management companies and groups, auction houses, probate and divorce attorneys and a large network of investors who at any time may be ready to retire and liquidate their assets.
