What Is Private Money Lending?

A private money lender is referring to someone who is lending money to real estate investors, normally secured by a note and deed of trust. This loan is not a bank loan from the local or national institutions that takes months. Often banks can’t make loans on distressed non habitable real estate.

At Gauntlet Funding, we specialize in funding high risk loans for these unconventional borrowers. Whatever your needs, we have the perfect solution.

Speak with our financing consultants and identify which program suits you best. And if you can’t find one, get yourself a custom loan. With so many options and flexible terms to choose from, real estate investing was never easier.
