Angela, as a harm money lender myself, I can answer this. It is too expensive for the homeowner for one. Typical hard money is done at 14-18% on short term and 11-14% in the long term.
Second, the respa guidelines and other lending laws prohibit private mortgages over 25k in the first position without being licensed or a federal bank. Since hard money is rarely seen in the second position, the loan cannot be done.

It is a tough market for now in this area in my opinion. Only patience and proper regulations will get us to a better place in lending over time again in my opinion.

Due to the high cost nature. Most hard money lenders don't want to deal with the consumer friendly laws.
