Your Question

How can I tell the difference between reputable hard money lenders and their rival scammers?

Real Answer

How can I tell the difference between reputable hard money lenders and their rival scammers?

It may take some due diligence of your own.

Here are some things you should find out about a hard money lender before ever doing business with them.

1.) Ask if they charge any upfront fees.

Although there are some reputable hard money lenders who charge upfront fees, there are many who do not.

Scammers know that some do charge upfront and so they position themselves accordingly.

It suits them because they can collect the fees and run, hanging you and reputable lenders out to dry.

My advice then is to choose a hard money lender that doesn’t charge any upfront fee at all.

2.) Do they promise you the world on a magic carpet?

Do they claim to be able to lend when no one else will? Do they lend without supporting documentation, without property as collateral and etc.?

If the answer is yes, they’re most likely a scammer.

3.) Are they a real business?

How long have they been in business? Did they start doing this last week? Do they have a real address, phone number, e-mail and website?

4.) Are they members with any industry trade organizations?

Are they a local chamber member? What is their status with the BBB?

All of these questions will certainly guide you in your due diligence process.
