As many of you would I’m sure agree, private loans can be an amazing vehicle for both the deal provider (you as the investor) and the cash providers (your private money partners). Private loans can help you finance flips and rentals and expand your real estate investments. Private loans are great for lenders as well. They can be a terrific way for them to receive a high ROI on the money. But private loans (like all tools in real estate investing) should be used with caution and intelligence.
