Key Takeaways: 

“Private and hard money is getting to be a lot more flexible, we’re about speed. We’re about analysis, quick analysis on the property first. And that’s closing in 24 hours.” – Ian Walsh 

“Bankers are not investors first by nature, which means they’re underwriting you rather than your deal. They’re not really fit for our space because my space is built on investment properties, I have to underwrite the property first and then borrow and when you do that in reverse you miss the essence of what private lending and hard money lending is and you run into trouble.” – Ian Walsh  

“If you’re calling a private lender, know your numbers. Even if you’re new, which is fine. When they come in, research and understand their values, they understand what a house is truly worth on the back end.” – Ian Walsh
