After the awful recession this country passed through, politicians passed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act to close the loopholes and loose regulations that allowed it to happen. It applied to banks and big financial institutions, but, surprisingly enough, it also encroached a bit on an area of lending that traditionally exists outside the system — hard money lending and specifically owner-occupied Arizona Hard Money Loans.
These newfound restrictions on the business sent many hard money lenders running for the hills, leaving the few who are willing to take the risk making it into a niche market. So, yes, they still exist and they’re a great option for the right candidate.
Even though they’ve taken up residence in the financial world as a niche loan, these types of loans are still a good option for some people. These include:
● People who may have faced a short sale, bankruptcy or foreclosure in the past and have a blemished record
● People who are buying their first-ever home
● People who need a bridge loan to span the gap until they get a conventional loan
● People with a “money pit” — a property with all sorts of repair problems
● People who need money to rehab their personal home
● Anyone who wants to consolidate debt
● Anyone who has increased equity and wants to refinance
Of course, there are pros and cons to these kinds of loans. They are easier to qualify for and they can come through quickly, but they also typically come with higher interest rates and stricter repayment plans.
