You should learn as much as you can from those who have borrowed hard money loans before. There are certain tips and tricks that you will learn therein. For example, whenever I borrow money, I take the trouble to seek out some collateral to proffer to the lender so that I can get a lower interest rate from them. However, I do not wring the whole package on the interest; rather on the money that I must make back from my venture. That is what would make it worthwhile enough for me.
Borrowing is a transfer of funds or property from one person to another. The transfer is temporary and is meant to be returned at a specified time and under specified circumstances. It is how the world has run for ages, and how it will continue to run for ages to come. People will always borrow money and the borrowers will always be there and they will always thrive. Learning to do things right will do you a lot of good.
Never lose your penchant or ability to negotiate when you are looking to get hard money loans from anyone. The chances are that if they can let you have one of what you seek, they can afford to let you have two too. My thoughts center on loans as I type these words. If they gave you a million, they can give you two; and if you get offered 12% interest, you can make them settle for 8%. It has always worked for me.
The risk involved in awarding or taking a loan always varies. Even if it were two different people interested in the same venture, mathematically it may translate into different instances. One could have proffered collateral, and the other person might be less trustworthy because they are from out of town. Now you know why they treat you differently.
They say the rich always get richer and the poor poorer, but that is about inevitable, especially considering loans. When you are rich you must have done business with banks before and they know you well enough; when you are poor, they don’t know you that well and so they could put some more stringent conditions to you for asking for a loan. Now how do they expect that you can ever keep up?
