The Benefits of Working with a Hard Money Lender

There are several benefits to working with an experienced Hard Money Lender for your loan scenario. When applying for a Hard Money Loan, working with an asset-based lender gives you the security needed to take on this high-risk loan.

One of the main benefits of a hard money mortgage program is even if the borrower has poor credit, they can obtain a hard money loan using the value of the investment property as collateral.

A true Hard Money Loan is an asset-based loan that is based on the value of the collateral - which in this scenario is the investment property. Given that hard money, loans are based on the value of an investment property (purchase price) rather than the borrower’s credit scores, working with asset-based lending can fund loans for private investors who are unable to get conventional financing or a traditional loan due to a recent foreclosure, bad credit, or short sale. 

Additionally, a hard money loan is a great option for anyone from beginner investors with a limited credit history to experienced real estate investors looking to free up liquidity and scale their business.

A private money lender can provide hard money loans on the following loan scenarios: single-family, multi-family, mixed-use, rental property, and commercial-investment properties.

Working with a Hard Money Lender will allow you to have your loan approved in half the time a traditional bank loan takes, with less underwriting and guidelines, giving you the opportunity to quickly purchase high in demand investment properties.

The interest rates on an asset-based hard money loan are usually higher than those of conventional mortgages. Interest rates for hard money loans range anywhere from 9.99%-10.99%, and Stratton Equities’ competitive loan programs offer qualified investors some of the best rates in the industry. 

Hard money lenders typically charge higher interest rates due to the greater risk associated with these loans, and the incredible speed in which they are able to process and fund transactions.


Hard money loans are a very strong tool for investors who need to move quickly. These short term (usually 12 months) loans are the perfect opportunity to aid any investor in developing their success.
