Study Up! Here are Hard Money Lending Terms to Know

If you’re new to hard money lending and investing through private money loans you’ll want to know some of the terminology so you can speak to lenders to determine project funding.

Veteran investors will tell anyone who’s new to the game that it’s incredibly important to know the lingo when you are going to interview your first Arizona private money lender . Your first investment experience can be intimidating, but if you study up on these terms you’ll feel confident in presenting your project and being able to respond to the questions that the Arizona private money lender will have for you.

· After Rehab Value (ARV) – What the house is expected to be worth after renovation

· Appraisal – A professional’s valuation of the property in its current condition, and its potential value after rehabilitation

· Crowdfunding – A group of lenders who work together to fund a loan

· Default – The inability to meet the terms of a loan

· Escrow – The account that holds funds in between lender payment and borrower withdrawal

· Lien – A legal entitlement to an asset

· Liquidity – How quickly an asset can be sold

· Loan to Value (LTV) – It is a number found by dividing the loan amount by the appraised value

· Maturity/Loan Term – When the loan is contractually expected to be paid off

· Proof of Funds – A document that a borrower uses to show available funds

· Return on Investment (ROI) – The ability for an investment to make money beyond what has been spent

· Title – Legal proof of ownership of an asset

· Underwriting – How lenders determine whether a loan should be funded by comparing project plans to potential profitability

These are some of the most common terms that you will come across when speaking with a Arizona private money lender when you’re discussing a potential investment project.
