Los Angeles Hard Money Lenders for Real Estate Investors
Here is a list of hard money lenders for residential and commercial real estate throughout Los Angeles, including Long Beach, West LA, San Fernando Valley, DTLA, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Glendale and other areas. Hard money loans are a great short-term solution for Los Angeles property investors who either don’t qualify for a traditional mortgage or just need to close a deal fast. Most hard money loans are 12 months, but some lenders offer a longer term.
In May 2019, a real estate investor approached us with a fantastic deal that required transactional funding for a double close wholesale transaction. The subject property is a single family residence in the sought-after Atwater Village neighborhood of Los Angeles. It was an opportunity that needed action taken immediately before the deal was lost. This was a no-brainer for us because the investor already had an end-buyer lined up, and it was easy to see the value in the property. In just two days, we provided 100% financing on the purchase of $430,000. Our unique transactional funding product has an added bonus - if the borrower pays off our loan within 30 days, we will refund them 1 point (origination fee) and a portion of the loan processing fees. The cherry on top for our new borrower client was the speed of the loan and the refund on-top of that.
