Ferris Financial Group, Inc. has hard money lenders available. Obtaining hard money depends on income, debt to income, and equity in the property. Lenders in hard money today are going to make sure you can pay the loan. They are not interested in owning the property at any cost.

At Ferris Financial Group, Inc. we have lenders available including most of the banks. We are a Loan broker company. The way we are set up, in some cases we can compete with the banks to place your loan and can probably do it for less than a bank can do it. As a loan broker we are licensed by the Department of Corporations with a Finance Lenders / Brokers license. We also are licenced by the Department of Real Estate. If you are interested in hearing more, please call Ferris Financial Group, Inc., Jack Ferris at 925-858-2879 so we can discuss with you what we can or cannot do.

California Real Estate Brokers License

California Real Estate Officers License

An AITD (All Inclusive Trust Deed) might work well in this scenario. There is a good example on the internet. Check out AITD.
