One mistake a lot of real estate investors make is to run around asking every hard money lender out there if they'd be willing to finance a possible scenario. If you are doing this, you are wasting your time and the other guy's time. Instead, focus your time on finding a good deal.

Even if you have the best plan for your particular neighborhood, none of the hard money lenders are really going to be interested in them until you have a concrete deal to show them. When you present an imaginary scenario to hard money lender, he will say that he isn't interested and will ask you to show a contract.

Well... that's how every lender works. I'm sorry to disappoint you. But doing that will not make you a successful real estate investor. So stop sitting and analyzing whether the lender would finance the deal. Go out there and find really hot properties that they want to finance. Spend time finding deals. Once you find deals, hard money lenders naturally know when a deal is good and would willingly finance it for you.

It's always frustrating when the hard money lenders make no promises whatsover. They won't tell you if they'd be willing to finance a deal at a particular county or neighborhood or prices. There's a chance that they won't supply you with any information at all. They might directly ask you if you have a deal in writing. There are some kinds of information that every hard money lender should present you with. They should tell you their charges, the areas they service and all other guidelines.

Will they allow rehab loans, commercial loans? Will they allow multi-unit properties? What price range they approve of? Do they allow family dwellings? You'll have to know this information at all costs. Every good hard money lender will have a website where they'll have put all the necessary information that a typical real estate investor will require.

That information will be more than enough for you to go and find hot property deals. With a website, you can find all the information that you need at just one go. However if the hard money lender you're working with isn't good enough, they won't have an updated website with the information you need.

My suggestion to you is to find single-family houses in major metropolitan areas for under $250,000. With these kinds of homes, you will be able to effortlessly attract the funds you require from your hard money lender. So if you find the hot real estate deal, you will find the money.
A hard money lender will always finance you if you find the right real estate deal for them. If you want more guidance on finding really hot property deals, visit the following page - Hot property deals.
