How to find the best company for your project

Finding a Real Estate Agent

Before you can purchase a property, you will want to make sure you have chosen a licensed real estate agent to help you through the home buying process. Through the real estate agent directory you can search for a qualified agent in your area. Finding the agent for you is an important decision. Before you choose and agent you should ask the following:

  • How long have you been a real estate agent/broker?
  • Can you provide references?
  • Can you help me find other professionals? Home Inspectors? Painters? Etc.
  • Have you completed any foreclosure or short-sale properties?

You can visit our real estate agent directory page or our search through our blog for more information on what you should look for in a real estate agent.

Finding a Lender

As a real estate investor you may already have a preferred lender that you work with. If you are newer to real estate investing you might still be shopping around for a great lender. You can utilize our company directory to find lenders near you. Before you find a lender you will want to have an idea of which type of loan you are looking for. There are multiple types of loans that you can purchase a property with:

  • Conventional Loan
  • Veteran Affairs Loan
  • Federal Housing Authority Loans (FHA)
  • HomeReady Loan
  • Personal Loans
  • Hard Money Loan
  • Adjustable-Rate Mortgage

For more information about home loans and which mortgage loan might be the best for you and your purchase you can visit our home loans page.

Finding Hard Money Lenders

A hard money loan is an asset-based loan that is not contingent on a credit score. One of the biggest factors affecting the approval of a traditional loan is your credit history and income, which can be bypassed by a private money loan. Lenders want a candidate that possesses a reputable re-payment history because this demonstrates the consumer’s ability to repay loans. If you are looking for a hard money loan we encourage you to search in the directory to find a hard money lender near you.
