Private Hard Money Lenders for Single Family Rental Homes

As the residential real estate market began to experience some changes in 2018, several private lending companies started offering long-term rental loans to single family home investors. Most property investors purchase homes with the intent to fix and flip, but there are many who invest and plan to hold as a long-term rental. Rental home investors now have a number of options to get private financing  with a term of 10 to 30 years. The interest rates for rental loans are typically in the range of 5% to 7% which is much lower than a typical short-term private/hard money loan.

Below are several private mortgage lenders on our platform that offer long-term loans for single family rental homes.
