If anyone is looking to transition out of the volatile market and put your money into something safer, I'm always looking for more private lenders! I'm a full time real estate investor. We've sold a bunch of our rentals and only have 21 at the moment. We also do flips. We pay our private lenders 10% (interest only payments) and loan terms are 6mos-1yr. Secured by first lien on the property. So if you're looking for something TANGIBLE to put your IRA or other monies to work, feel free to shoot me a PM and I'd be happy to meet up and discuss. Plenty of references from title company and other investors!
