      Hi there!

      If you’re trying to get funds for coronavirus-related financing needs, you could try applying now. As we understand it, lenders are making a lot of exceptions to their normal rules during this difficult time. Best of luck to you!

        At work, we are thinking about getting a hard money loan for some office renovations. It is good to know that the loan is secured by real estate. I would have to make sure that it is a short term loan so that I can pay it off quickly.

          It is great advice to know that private money real estate lenders are an option after someone has declared bankruptcy. I have been thinking about using it as a short term option to fix up my house. My goal is to sell the house and downsize to something I can better afford.
