Using your boss as a hard money lender

2 Replies

My husband and I both have W-2 jobs and are looking to begin our REI journey. My brother has begun his journey thanks to BP and has been successful, and I'm a super proud big sister. We want to start investing with each and are looking for hard money lenders as opportunities arise faster. Any thoughts on investing with your boss? I understand pros and cons, but thinking maybe a good close to home pro as far as a hard money lender and him possibly being a little more relaxed with the interest he would charge us. It would be my boss I am considering asking. Thank you to all in advance.
