Basics of Investing


1) Experienced lender

Hanson Capital is a licensed mortgage bank with extensive experience in private money lending and the real estate industry. Since 2008, Hanson Capital has funded over $250 million dollars in real estate transactions with proven success and repeat customers.

2) Finding the right properties with equity.

It is important to know how much equity the borrower has to increase the safety of your investment. By using the market value along with the most recent market sales comparables, we ensure that each deal will have equity should the property need to be resold. Hazard insurance, paid before closing, along with full title insurance will also provide the investor security in the loan.

3) Borrower’s financial standing and creditworthiness.

Hard money loans are typically made to borrowers with less credit and income documentation. The higher interest rate relative to conventional residential loans recognizes this. Even so, we do obtain information on the borrower’s ability to pay back the loan by looking at past real estate experience or business plans so you can make a more informed decision.

4) Escrow process involving the funding of the loan or the purchase of the note.

All of our loans require licensed escrow companies that will handle the documents and funds between buyers and sellers, borrowers and lenders. They are required to be a fiduciary for all parties. As an additional layer of safety, we instruct our investors to send their loan wires to the title company, which in turn will pay the seller, previous lender being paid off or the borrower, as specified. Title companies have a much higher threshold of regulation by the Insurance Department and errors and omissions and liability insurance requirements.

5) Documents and instruments describing, evidencing, and securing the loan.

You will be presented with disclosure and servicing documents that you will complete and sign before your investment. Your investment will be evidenced by the Promissory Notes, Deed of Trust and other Riders as one of the beneficiaries (in the case of multiple lender loans) of the loan.

6) Loan servicing and compensation.

Our knowledgeable loan servicing team will be responsible for collecting borrower payments and transmitting monthly payments to the investor. The servicing team will be the main point of contact when it comes to updating real estate portfolio, tax questions, or quarterly income statements.

7) Recovering your investment if the borrower fails to pay. As the lender on a loan, there is a risk of the loss of principal and unpaid interest payments should the loan go into foreclosure. Our loan servicing team is experienced in managing the past due collections, default process, and ultimately foreclosure of the property should you choose to use them. While there is an out of pocket expense with the foreclosure process, the expense is potentially recoverable from the resale of the property.
