Become a Private Lender: Invest in Real Estate without Flipping or Renting

Private Loans: Invest in Real Estate without Flipping or Renting

Do you know about private loans?

And did you know you can invest in real estate without resorting to fixing and flipping or fixing and renting?

It’s true. Everyone can put their money to work, even if they don’t want to put their muscles to work. If you want, you can skip the hammers, ladders, and paint. There’s no need to groan over dust-covered floors, clothes, and, well, everything. And forget about stressing over contractors and delayed projects. Because you can invest in real estate without ever stepping foot inside a property.

How is this possible? Well, it’s actually pretty easy.

Rather than rolling up your sleeves and searching, buying, fixing, and selling or renting properties, you can become a private lender.

What does being a private lender mean?

Simply put, you become a bank for fix and flippers or rental owners. And you get to charge them interest for using your money.

Interest rates vary in private lending, but one thing is for sure: you’ll earn A LOT more interest in real estate than in your bank account.

Now, there are a couple of ways to become a private lender.

#1: A Helping Hand

So, the easiest way to get started is through companies like our sister company, The Note Shop. Through our licensed company, we connect private lenders with real estate investors.

And when you use a company like ours, you don’t need to:

  • Search for real estate investors who need funding.
  • Interview them and review their portfolio to determine how much you can trust them with your money.
  • Analyze properties to make sure they’re worth the investment.
  • Prepare loan documents, like deeds of trust and mortgages.
  • Handle escrow draws.
  • Oversee the life of the loan, including all payments, extensions, and modifications.

Yes, you can skip ALL of that and let our team do the work for you. That means we handle the entire list above.

Not you.

#2: DIY

Or, if you’re experienced and confident in private lending, you can work directly with real estate investors. This is best known in the business as OPM (Other People’s Money).

OPM puts you directly in the driver’s seat. Because you get to decide how big of a risk you’d like to take with your money, and that risk is based on trust.

Like, do you trust them to:

  • Pay you back?
  • Buy, fix, and flip a property within your agreed upon timeline?
  • Sell or rent a property for what they claim it’s worth after they repair it?

In addition to trust, you also need to tackle the entire to-do list we mentioned above. This is completely doable! But, again, it comes down to how much risk and work you want to take on.

So, there you have it! You can invest in real estate without ever picking up a hammer.

And, believe us when we say, private lending is easy, lucrative, and EASY!

Private Lender: How to Invest in Real Estate without Flipping or Renting

Private Lender: How to Invest in Real Estate without Flipping or Renting

Did you know you can be a private lender?

That’s right. And today we’re going to show you how to invest in real estate without resorting to fixing and flipping or fixing and renting.

It’s true. Everyone can put their money to work, even if they don’t want to put their muscles to work. If you want, you can skip the hammers, ladders, and paint. No need to groan over dust-covered floors, clothes, and, well, everything. And forget about stressing over contractors and delayed projects.

You can invest in real estate without ever stepping foot inside a property.

How to Invest in Real Estate Without Flipping or Renting

How is this possible?

Well, it’s fairly easy.

Rather than rolling up your sleeves and searching, buying, fixing, and selling/renting properties, you can become a private lender.

What does being a private lender mean?

Simply put, you become a bank for fix and flippers or rental owners. Rather than these real estate investors going to a “real” bank or traditional lender, they come to you for money.

And you get to charge them interest for using your money.

Interest rates vary in private lending, but one thing is for sure. You’ll earn WAY more interest in real estate than in your bank account. Because banks pay far less interest than real estate investors.

Private Lender

Now, there are a couple of ways to become a private lender.

The Easy Way

The easiest way to get started is through companies like our sister company, The Note Shop. We connect private lenders with real estate investors (aka, fix and flippers and rental owners).

When you use a company like ours, you don’t need to:

  • Search for fix and flippers/rental owners that need funding.
  • Interview flippers/rental owners to determine how much you can trust them with your money.
  • Review real estate portfolios. Again, to establish trust. How much experience does this real estate investor have? What’s the quality of their work?
  • Analyze properties to make sure they’re worth the investment.
  • Prepare loan documents, like deeds of trust and mortgages.
  • Handle escrow draws.
  • Oversee the life of the loan, including all payments, extensions, and modifications.

You can skip ALL of that, and let our team do the work for you. That means we handle the entire list above.

Not you.

All you have to do is wait for a call or email from our team to inform you there’s a loan available. If you’re happy with it, then you just have to head to your bank and send a wire to a licensed and trusted title company (First American, Old Republic, Fidelity, etc.).

And then watch the plump interest payments hit your bank account every month.

It’s simple, it’s lucrative, and it’s way easier than fixing or renting a property yourself. Let someone else do the work, right?

Do It Yourself

Now, if you’re experienced and confident in private lending, then you can work directly with real estate investors. This is best known in the business as OPM (Other People’s Money).

We actually encourage our flipper and rental clients to seek out OPM as a funding option because it’s really the cheapest path to buying properties. Because they don’t have to pay a traditional lender multiple fees and points. Instead, they can focus on interest-only loans.

How much interest should you charge? Well, that’s really up to you and your client. When you’re in the driver’s seat, you get decide how big of a risk you’d like to take with your money. And that risk is based trust.

Do you trust them to:

  1. Pay you back?
  2. Buy, fix, and flip a property within your agreed upon timeline? (Or refinance into a traditional loan so you can invest your money elsewhere?)
  3. Sell or rent a property for what they claim it’s worth after they repair it?

In addition to trust, you also need to be willing to tackle the entire to-do list we mentioned above (evaluating investors and deals, preparing documents, overseeing the loan, etc.). This is completely doable! But, again, it comes down to how much risk and work you want to take on.

If you want to make the most money possible while doing the least amount of work, then relying on The Note Shop or a similar company to help you is perfect.

So, there you have it! You can invest in real estate without picking up a hammer or worrying about a bad contractor.

Believe us when we say, private lending is easy, lucrative, and EASY!
