Among the many lenders and financial advisors available on the internet, there are several consensuses as to what you, the prospective real estate investor, need to know before you attempt to procure financing. The five-step protocol is really simple, dependent on your due diligence in preparing before requesting. Whomever you choose to submit your application to, make sure you do these things, in this order:
dynamics of private lending
First, educate yourself thoroughly on the dynamics of private lending for real estate investments. Any private money lender is going to want to have confidence in your viability as their borrower. Your ability to navigate the full course of the lending process without a misstep –

including repaying the loan on the terms agreed to – is their first concern and essential to a healthy borrower-lender relationship. ReProp Financial has a 30+ year track record of excellent borrower relationships.
Money Lending is a relationship building business, and the more healthy relationships you have, the better. Financing your next real estate investment may depend on having money made available quickly when you need it. Your choice of one lender over another in this scenario is not necessarily a measure of the other lender’s worthiness or credibility, but simply of being able to provide the funds fastest when you need them. ReProp Financial streamlines underwriting and can quick-close for your window of opportunity.

By this time, you have made yourself appealing to a prospective lender by learning the components of the loan application process – financing options, collateral requirements, and borrower responsibilities. You should have collected a list of prospective lenders to choose from, it is time to prepare a solid portfolio presentation for whomever you choose to present it to.

Your history of investment success in real estate ventures will weigh significantly in your favor when your chosen private money lender considers your application. The private moneylender is going to want a start-to-finish roadmap – a solid investment strategy – for their involvement in your project with their money.

  You are now ready to submit your application – but to whom? As much as you need to establish to your prospective lender(s) your fiscal viability, you need equally to ascertain their lender credibility. How diverse is their portfolio of commercial real estate loans, construction loans, multi-unit residential project loans, and single-family residential loans? If your project falls within a well-represented portion of that portfolio, it should be considered as a positive indicator. The terms they are going to offer – collateral requirements, repayment schedule, and interest rate – are, of course, crucial elements as well.

Finally, you can take your case to court, so to speak. Your presentation to your chosen lender needs to impress them powerfully. You are vying for their financing among many  other borrowers, and the current market does not leave room for ineptitude. Rates are still up to suppress inflation, and real estate private money lenders are stepping back from sectors of the real estate market with less proven rates of return.

If you are looking for money to refinance a current real estate holding or commercial property/enterprise, you need to have all the numbers that indicate an ongoing revenue stream that can leverage your repayment of their loan. Even if the project you are bringing to them is single-unit residential construction – the favored sector in today’s real estate market – you need to have projected construction costs, rate of sale, and profit margin available for your lender’s consideration. Ultimately, your entire presentation package must be  as compelling (and factual) as possible.
