It’s understandable that Michigan Hard Money Lenders have seen a bit of an uptick in business since the global economy’s sort of taken a turn for the worse in recent years. Credit’s frozen solid, and traditional banking behemoth’s just aren’t lending as they used to; they’re lending, but the requirements are esoteric at best, and proving quite difficult to get through to, in order to qualify. [ad#ad-top]The problem isn’t that folks, participants in the economy (small business owners, individuals, households, etc.) aren’t doing their part or acting responsibility; the sort of responsible activities of individuals that the real estate’s woes are blamed on have largely made its way through the economy already. No, the bottleneck in stuck capital (“gridlocked capitalism”) lies in the hands of those international banking conglomerates that facilitated much of the economic activity (second only to the United States government in this level of facilitation and enabling) that led to our current set of essential economic problems.
This is where Michigan Hard Money Lenders are really stepping in, stepping into areas of the economy in which demand is through the roof, but in which none of this demand is being met by any of those overbearing traditional international banking institutions. You know of these traditional banks and can likely name a few off the top of your head that service the needs of folks in your area. Folks in your area often bank with these folks in order to have a place to save their paychecks, to store their hard earned cash, and to make use of handy debit card features that are now found to be universal with many checking accounts. These banks may also cater to the needs of small business owners that need to further capitalize their businesses.
And its these small businesses that are likely not able to keep up with the moving target of borrowing requirements of the traditional banks. Reports litter the local media with anecdotes of frustration with these traditional banks, which is why, it’s cited, that Michigan hard money is being sought; hard money lenders in Michigan are finding themselves filling in the demand gaps in which traditional banks are no longer being effective. And effectiveness is how these loan products are marketed, as these particular sort of loans have the ability to suit the borrower’s needs more acutely than can traditional leverage arrangements.
These loans are often required to be collateralized by some real estate. The terms of this collateralization really varies from lender to lender. In many cases, the lender will require that a substantial and considerable share or percentage in equity in the real estate, property is held by the borrower, in order for the loan to be approved. Lenders will vary, as well, on their stance on cosigners. While some lenders will weigh a cosigner’s creditworthiness of a part owner of a piece of real estate that’s offered up as collateral, other hard money lenders may not require this of their hard money personal loans.
