How to Launch Your Retirement Through Private Lending
Launch your retirement!
The most common ways to save for retirement are the stock market, 401Ks, and other retirement savings accounts. They’re common journeys most people take when they start putting money away for their future.
But did you know there’s another frontier to explore when it comes to preparing for retirement?
Although it’s a frontier that’s been around for centuries, and it’s a frontier that’s helped many, it’s not exactly a frontier people think to explore.
But this frontier can lead to lucrative cash flow and a safe, comfortable, and happy future.
We’re talking about private lending.
Private lending can launch your retirement savings into a whole new universe. Compared to the stock market, which is volatile, and retirement savings accounts, which are questionable, private lending is consistent, easy, and safe. And, most importantly, profitable.
What is private lending?
Simply put, you become a bank for someone who needs cash. And, in the real estate world, that someone is a fix and flipper, rental owner, or another property investor.
These real estate investors can’t always rely on a traditional bank for funding. Either because they can’t meet a bank’s strict qualifications, or because they need to buy a property super fast…and banks don’t close deals super fast.
So, they turn to private lenders. Private lenders, like you, lend them the money they need and charge them interest for it.
The amount of interest you charge is up to you. Most private lenders make between 5% and 12%. You can’t make that kind of interest by letting your money sit in a bank. And you can’t know for sure you’ll make it through the stock market.
So, how do you become a private lender? Well, there are a couple of ways to get going.
The easiest way is through companies like ours. We connect private lenders with real estate investors, and help with all the paperwork and other steps that secure your money.
Or, if you’d rather explore the private lending frontier on your own, then 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 pilot’s seat, and you get to decide your path…and the risks that come with it.
Private lending is definitely a worthwhile adventure! If you’re ready to learn more about it and launch your retirement, then our team is always here to help.
