Many hard money lenders don't like to do owner occupied loans because there are more regulations involved and extra paper work. You may have to do a fair amount of searching.

Dear Slishmov,

I'd try Daniel Rosen at Renovo Financial. There are what I'd call an alternative to hard money lending, but they've got some very useful programs for both owner occupants and investors.

You can try Daniel at either 847-347-4781 or drosen@renovofinancial.com.

Good luck.

It will be hard if not impossible to find a hard money lender for loans that originate in Illinois; for homes where the owner is occupying. The state has passed a ton of new laws concerning how mortgages for owners can be handled. Not going to go through the laws seeing that I am not a lawyer. Just ask a local lender or attorney. Loaning money under hard money terms to an owner occupant can cause the lender all sorts of headaches.
