The last time I went through the traditional mortgage application process I thought I would choke on the paperwork. The number of phone calls and faxes involved was ludicrous. I thought to myself ?There must be a better way.? The good news? there IS a better way, and it?s called private money for real estate investing.
When you initiate the process of applying for mortgage financing, you had best realize that you are unleashing a blizzard? a blizzard of forms, applications, faxes and phone calls back and forth with the lender. If you would prefer not spending countless hours in front of the copier, or with the phone receiver glued to your head, then consider the alternative of private money for real estate investing.
By developing a system of finding and using private money for real estate investing, you will enjoy the benefit of greatly reduced hassle and paperwork. The last private money loan I closed on involved exactly three phone calls and one meeting with my lender to sign a simple note. In fact, we had an enjoyable lunch together, so even that part was completely painless.
The simple fact is that when you develop your own group of lenders, all of whom stand ready to provide you with private money for real estate investing, you are creating freedom for yourself? freedom from the mind-numbing experience of applying for loans, proving you make what you say you make, apologizing for past credit mistakes, explaining gaps in employment, and begging for special dispensation.
Talk about a de-humanizing experience. Why would anyone willingly subject themselves to that, when there is a much better alternative?
The alternative is to apply just a little bit of effort and develop a group of consistent, loyal lenders to partner with. The great news is that when you make a decision to find and use private money for real estate investing there is a wealth of information available to you.
