In this recession and economy, it’s no wonder Hawaii Hard Money Lenders are seeing a bit of a pickup in business. One of the reason that this is the case is rooted in the current state of affairs about the traditional big box banks. These banks have been embroiled in contentious issue after contentious issue, and has culminated in a set of financial regulatory reforms that are set to be passed in 2010.
All that Hawaii hard money really requires is a way to collateralize the loan arrangement, and the cornerstone of this arrangement is real estate. In fact, hard money lenders in Hawaii will focus most of its due diligence about the borrower on the real estate being offered to use as collateral on the loan arrangement. Hard lenders really vary and run the gamut, and as such, you can expect due diligence proceedings to occur a bit different from lender to lender. You might be dealing with an individual private lender that really only does a few deals every year, and likely does a good deal of the legwork of the due diligence phase himself, and is most likely even a private practicing attorney (many lawyers get into this, because at the heart of the financial arrangement is the law, which governs EVERYTHING about the loan). Private lenders tend to take a bit longer to get a loan approved, and are usually referred by a personal acquaintance that knew the borrower that was in need of hard money mortgages.
