investing-hard-money-reiclubIt does not matter how low or high the interest rate is for a desired mortgage loan if the borrower cannot qualify for the loan. Conventional 30-year fixed mortgage rates have hovered within the high 3% to mid-6% rate ranges over the past 10 years between 2006 and 2016. Money received today is much more valuable than money received in the future due to factors such as inflation.

The median length of time for an owner-occupant with a 30-year fixed mortgage rate is 10 years. Right around 10 years, the owner is likely to pay off the loan by refinancing or selling the property. This average 10-year hold time for owner occupants is a key reason why 30-year fixed mortgage rates are tied directly to the 10-year Treasury Yields.

However, non-owner investors or “fix and flippers” may only hold their mortgages in place for a few months or a few years. Private money, as a result, becomes very affordable due to the short closing and holding time averages. The brightest investors these days know how to find the most valuable and deeply discounted prices prior to buying the properties, improving them, and selling them as quickly as possible for a quick $50,000, $100,000, or $250,000+ profit once they truly have confidence in their funding sources.

At the right numbers, all deals make sense, but you should take into consideration that there could be some damage done or time before you can occupy the property and do what you want to do.
