Hard Money Lending Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How Can We Help You?
A: No, hard money lenders offer bridge loans, refinances, new construction and other types of business purpose, non-owner-occupied real estate loans.
A: While some hard money lenders may, we currently don't provide funding on buildings that are residential in nature, such as houses and apartment complexes. Restaurants, retail stores, office space, and other commercial properties cannot be funded unless they are part of mixed-use buildings in which the majority of the space is residential.
A: Lend Some Money can issue hard money loans in all states except for South Dakota and Vermont, as well as Washington D.C.

A: Yes, as long as the property is located in the United States and you have a US-based bank account.

A: We do not run a hard credit pull for quoting the loan. Only once you decide move forward with the full application process, a credit and background check would be run.
A: Generally, an application to borrow is submitted containing what kind of property is being purchased, or if the property is owned and looking to refinance or withdraw equity. The borrower is then pre-qualified and given a rate quote based on their credit and amount being borrowed. If he/she decides to move forward, the formal application process begins and supporting documents proving income, property information and credit information are submitted to underwriting for review. Title search and appraisal are ordered. If the risk is considered within acceptable threshold, the loan moves forward to begin the funding process where eventually the loan is dispersed in a method specific to the loan type.
A: Hard money lender policies vary, but generally a soft credit pull may be used for a pre-qualification on the initial application to understand general eligibility and rates. This is similar to credit card pre-approvals, and the soft pull does not show up on your report. A hard credit pull is required when moving forward with the full loan application for funding.
