Hard Money Loans and rising inflation, what it all means.

Posted by Jim Emerson

Fears of rising inflation in the US have been garnering attention all over the news and in many other countries. The Economist (a magazine published in the UK) included in its November 13, 2021, edition an article entitled “A three-decade high in inflation sows concerns about America’s recovery”. The Australian (a newspaper printed in Australia) included an article with the headline “US inflation spike to record levels means mortgage rates in Australia are almost certain to rise.” Forbes published during September 2021 an article about inflation and mortgages[1] and how it might be a good time to buy a house to protect yourself against rising inflation. And we could continue citing interesting inflation-related articles.

Better than just letting you navigate in the news, let us try to give you our point of view on what you as a borrower of real-estate related loans, be it a mortgage for your new home or a bridge loan for a fix and flip, should know about inflation and loans.

We had the nicest phone call a few weeks ago, and it made our day. A client who had just paid off his mortgage, after many years of having a loan with us, called to express his appreciation for the trust we placed on him (and the loan we gave him back then) and the excellent service we provided after having struggled, unsuccessfully, for years to get a mortgage for his Church. 

It just goes to prove once more what a friend once told us: that AMI Lenders is in the “hope business.” We give hope to borrowers that feel they have no hope. Another way to say it is: “here at AMI Lenders, we offer non-traditional alternative loan products.” Many of our clients cannot qualify for a bank loan or a loan from a traditional mortgage company. We not only help people, but we also go out of our way to be helpful. You would be surprised to know how much advice we provide to our applicants.
