WHAT IS IT? What is Private Mortgage Investing? There are two primary reasons our borrower clients turn to private mortgages rather than institutional real estate funding. *First, the speed of a transaction. Unlike banks, private mortgage groups like The Equity Experts can often evaluate, arrange and close a private mortgage in days compared to weeks. *Second, private mortgage candidates may have credit issues or debt-to-income ratios that disqualify them for typical institutional loans.

How long does a private mortgage investment take to set up?
Because we've done much of the due diligence prior to presenting you with an investment opportunity, the process can be completed very quickly. Depending on three primary components:
1) You. We want you to take the time you need to complete any research and due diligence you feel necessary in order to be comfortable with the investment;
2) Escrow. The title and escrow process is out of our hands and even though we use professionals who are familiar with doing this type of transaction, they can often be “swamped” with work, delaying the process; and
3) The title itself. In the event there are “clouds” on the title, then we will make sure that they are cleaned up before proceeding with the loan - this can take time.
In most cases, depending on the size of the transaction an investment takes about 2 weeks from start to finish.
