by , | Jun 27, 2023 | Funding, Podcast

If you’re in the real estate investing game, you probably have heard the term “hard money”, but what does it mean and why does it matter? Abhi Golhar sat down with Flipco Financial’s Vice President, Kayla Pelland, to discuss what hard money is and how it could affect your investing strategy. They chat about some of the mistakes that new investors make as it relates to private money, if a zero percent deal is feasible in today’s world, and what a borrower should look for in a lender. Plus, they talk about if your fix and flip timeline should be extended, where the opportunities are and what she sees in the midterm rental space and how it is geared toward healthcare professionals (healthcare professionals, listen up!).
