Hard-money lenders offer high-interest, short-term loans to borrowers who can’t get traditional bank financing, including investors and people with spotty credit. The interest rate can be in the high teens — compared with less than 5% for bank mortgages — while the length can be as short as a few months. Hard-money lenders don’t focus much on a borrower’s credit scores. They care more about asset valuations and loan-to-value ratios. Many lenders won’t lend more than 50% to 70% of the property’s value, while banks will lend as much as 80% and government-backed loans can go as high as 96.5%. Because there is little bureaucracy when compared with big banks, deals can be approved and closed in just a few days.

Hard-money lending can be a valuable tool for a borrower who can not qualify for conventional bank financing. This is especially true in the today's credit-tight environment. If you need to capture a profit opportunity and the time is of the essence, hard-money or bridge loan may be an answer to the problem.
