Before you start calling Hard Money lenders....you may want to look for Private Money. These are people who have money sitting in their 401K's and IRA's. There are a lot of people out there who have Self Directed IRA's who are looking for projects and deals to put their money to work instead of keeping it in the stock market.
If you need to learn a little bit more about Self Directed IRA's you may want to check out www.trustetc.com. They are one of the great companies who provide great help and info.
I believe that if you search Youtube that you'll find a good video which describes the company and how to find Private Money instead of Hard Money Lenders.
