After last weeks announcement we could still close hard money transactions prior to year end. We had a number of loans inspected and set for closing this week. As always there are no upfront fees/inspection fees, etc.. prior to closing. I’m commonly asked how we can close loans so quickly. First, we do not require appraisals; we personally inspect every property and put our value on the property. This can typically be done in less than a couple of days depending on our schedule. Second, Fairview is a direct lender that lends its own money. We are not brokers and do not have to rely on third parties to make decisions (note: when looking at hard money lenders in Denver and Colorado make sure you are dealing with a direct lender like Fairview as opposed to a broker that will promise the moon and string you along). Since Fairview is a direct lender that underwrites in house we can close your Denver hard money transaction and Colorado hard money transaction quickly.
