One of the most difficult things for a young company to do is to define itself. Sometimes it's easy to identify what product you're selling, what service you're providing or who you want to do business with, but it can be difficult to identify how you want to deliver your product, who your target customer is, or the parameters under which you're going to deliver business to your end consumer. As a result, it's often times difficult for a company to tell a consumer exactly who they are and why anyone should want to do business with them. Figuring out why they present a strategic advantage in the marketplace is something that generally takes time not only to discover but also to communicate.
The hard money lending
industry is no different. We all know that the product every hard money lender
is selling is money, but the circumstances surrounding any sale made in this industry can vary widely. Under what circumstances does a hard money lender
allow a customer to borrow their capital? In what geographic regions are they willing to lend it? And what procedures will they follow in order to take a loan request and deliver it to the closing table? These aren't necessarilly easy answers to come up with and they're even more difficult to translate for mortgage brokers and borrowers, especially in an industry where professionals use conflicting terminology as if its synonymous and hard money lenders
advertise information that isn't even necessarily accurate. How in the world does a hard money lender
tell borrowers and mortgage brokers what it is that they do?
There's really only one answer: very generally.
Operating in the hard money lending
industry is a mostly subjective task. What will fly on Tuesday won't necessarily fly on Thursday, and what worked this morning may not work this afternoon. That's just the way things are. Hard money lending
doesn't fit into a Lender Matrix because hard money lending
isn't about following a process. Hard money lending
in 2011 is about finding customized solutions that will help borrowers achieve a goal. In almost all cases, that solution won't be found in an Excel spreadsheet.
