Private money investors: Mind the gap

Clay Sparkman

It is our opinion and the opinion of many others that banks, though they’ve bounced back in certain areas, have not picked up the slack when it comes to funding rehab, construction, and development loans.

I have been on about this before, so I won’t go into great detail here. I think that the following post makes the case pretty effectively.

2013: Think construction loans

Getting down to brass tacks, we feel that this is a great opportunity for those in the private money business. In particular, we at Fairfield see enormous opportunity, in that (a) this need exists in such a desperate way, and (b) we have been funding and servicing such loans for many years—so it is an easy pickup for our company and for the many brokers that we partner with.

If you aren’t already familiar with our programs in these areas, please consider educating yourself further. Feel free to e-mail me at clay@privatemoneysource.com with any questions that you may have, and/or we can setup a time for a phone call to go over all this.

With that in mind, I shall point you toward some prior posts that might help you get a handle on the particulars of our lending in these areas.

Here is our Rehab and construction loan FAQ.

This next article focuses more particularly on quick flips: 2013: The year of the quick flip.
