Hard money lenders generally require a down payment of at least 25%. Finding a hard money lender who will fund a loan on an owner occupied property will be difficult. Hard money loans are short-term so you will need to explain to the hard money lender how you will pay off the loan. Hopefully you will be able to refinance with a conventional loan in a year or two and pay off the hard money loan.

There are lots of hard money lenders out there, but lending requirements between them can vary quite a bit. You'll really want to make sure that you check out a lender's requirements before you apply. Otherwise, you could end up wasting a lot of time applying for loans that won't work for you. I've been there, and it's no fun. I found a pdf that compares common lending requirements. It's from a specific company pitching their own loans, of course, but the info is good. Here it is:…

If you're asking about % of downpayment it's usually a minimum of 30% but they go on a case-by-case basis. Financing for 3-5 years. You'll need to present an "exit plan". In other words, a plan that will get you out of the hard-money loan. The property is a big part of the interest rate and downpayment % requirement.

In my experience most hard money lenders will charge you around 12% to 15%. Investors use hard money lenders for short term loans, usually not more than 6 months. And in that case the different in interest rate is not too bad.

Hard money is usually not a good option for end buyers, unless you can refinance out of the hard money in a few months to 1 year. If you need more than that to obtain a regular loan, you should probably try to purchase through other means.

Have you considered looking for seller financing homes? These are homes where the seller is willing to finance the transaction. Interest rates will usually be between 6% to 8% or 9%. They will usually give you between 3 to 5 years to refinance. And they typically require between 10% to 20% down.

You can check seller financing homes in Chandler here ->…

You will also be able to check other cities and filter by price range and zip code.

I hope this helps. Good luck!

Hard money lenders won't lend on a primary residence.

Around where I am, hard money costs about 5 points and 15%. You might be able to negotiate that down a bit, but probably not below 3 points and 12%. (It's probably a bit different where you are.) And, again, that's for investment properties. Not primary residences.

As an owner occupant I would not use a hard money lenders. The risk is too high unless you already have a guaranteed source of money to pay off the loan in the next few months . Hard money is for very short term loans. In fact most reputable hard money lenders will only lend to investors for short term needs. Expect a hard money lender to require 30-50% down payment with interest rates of 10-15% and a requirement to pay the loan off in full in 6-18 months. If you fail to pay the balloon payment when it is due, they will take the house and you will lose your full down-payment.
