How Hard Money Loans Work

Hard money loans, sometimes referred to as bridge loans, are short-term lending instruments that real estate investors can use to finance an investment project. This type of loan is often a tool for house flippers or real estate developers whose goal is to renovate or develop a property, then sell it for a profit. Hard money loans are issued by private lenders rather than mainstream financial institutions such as banks.

Hard Money Loan Rates: How They’re Set

The primary reason people invest in hard money loands is for higher interest rates. In general, interest rates range from 2 – 10 percentage points higher than traditional mortgages. As of 2021, the average interest rate we pay for hard money loans is 11.25%.

Document that defines a mutual understanding

A Partnership Agreement outlines and describes the relationship between partnership entities (i.e. general partner and limited partners) in a joint real estate investment. It is a critical document that defines a mutual understanding of financial terms, describes the roles each party plays, decision making for the project and how actual distributions are made after deducting valid expenses. This is often the only legal document that contractually binds the General Partner or sponsor of a deal with the investors.

The Partnership Agreement

The Partnership Agreement sets the parameters of the expectations during acquisition, development (if any), ongoing operations, and ultimately the exit. Each of these stages represents different goals and rules for the general partner to abide by and it is difficult if not impossible to predict all scenarios at the outset. The specific terms usually include property details, investment timing, returns on capital pre-deployment, rights to additional investment, acquisition or management fees, third party fees, duty not to self-deal, calculation of IRR, and finally, in the event of a legal dispute, how that dispute will be resolved.

The Limited Partner

The Limited Partner need not be a true LP in a Limited Partnership, but can be referred to as anyone who invests passive capital and limits their own responsibility for decision making. These investors can be individuals, LLCs, equity groups, pension funds, university endowments, etc. The key factor is an investor who has more capital than time or expertise. They trade some return for the ability to passively invest.
