Who can be a lender? Here are some examples...


Lender Example: Real Estate Agent

One of our favorite real estate agents is also one of our lenders.  She finds us deals and then funds them.  She makes commission on the purchase, funds the deal and makes 10% annualized interest while we renovate the property, and then makes a second commission when we sell the property.  She makes money 3 ways! 

This was a real estate agent who started out helping us find deals and then got the listing on the back end.  She saw first hand on our HUD statements how much we were paying our lenders.  It didn't take long for her to want to become one of our lenders and make money with her money.  Smart!

Lender Example: Using Retirement Funds

Many of our lenders use self directed retirement plans to become a private money lender.  An example would be using their Self Directed IRA.  Some people don't start with an IRA they have an old 401k (or multiple old 401k's) from a previous employer.  With the help of a licensed professional people are able to take their old "Forgotten" 401k plans and roll them over into a Self Directed IRA. Companies estimate that there's roughly 1.25 Trillion in "Forgotten" 401k plans. Roughly 2.8 million plans are left behind every year.  If you are one of these people, great news, we can refer you to a Certified Self-Directed IRA Professional that specializes in self directed IRAs that can help you get set up.

Lender Example: Someone who just wants to make money with their money

We've helped school teachers, busy professionals, retired veterans, musicians, other real estate investors, the list goes on and on.  Anyone can be a private lender. Look at the current economic environment.  Inflation is at an all time high.  Money in a savings account earning 1% is losing to inflation that last year came in above 8%.  Plus, unlike the stock market, private lending is secured by real estate.   When working with a team like ours, lenders get to pick the deals that they want to fund.  The lender is in complete control of their money.  We love presenting win-win opportunities to anyone with a desire to do better.

How does private lending work?


Private money lending is a billion dollar industry.  Yet, not a lot of people have heard about it. Why is that?  Well, banks don't want you to do what they do!  Banks and financial advisors like to control our money; not the other way around.  Private money lending allows a person to take control of their financial future. 

When someone becomes a private money lender with Revive Homes LLC not only are they making great interest on their loan but the loan is also secured by collateral (real estate).  That collateral is  worth a lot more than a persons loan amount. 

The loan is secured because we provide our lenders with a Mortgage or Deed of Trust (just like a bank would want).  We also provide them with a Promissory Note that outlines the terms of the loan and we provide a personal guarantee.  Plus, we list our lenders on the insurance as the loss payee (just like a bank would want).  


1.  Mortgage or Deed of Trust (depending on the state)

2. Promissory Note

3. Personal Guarantee

4. Lender is listed on the insurance as the loss payee


The mortgage and promissory notes are drawn up by our legal team.  Real estate closings in South Carolina are done with an Attorney.  All of our lenders have the ability to review their mortgage and note prior to wiring funds.  All funds are wired to the closing attorney.  At no point will Revive Homes LLC or it's managers ask for funds to be directly wired to the company.

What rates do you pay?

We pay anywhere from an 8-12% Annualized rate of return for shorter term loans.  Each opportunity is different.  We love to help our lenders reach double digits.

Private lending is relationship based.  What keeps most people from jumping into private lending is not knowing who to lend their money too.  We feel as though our team at Revive Homes can provide future lenders with consistent opportunities, a perfect track record, and a great lending experience.
