What Do You Use Peer to Peer Lending For?
What is peer to peer lending and what can you use it for? Peer to peer lending is asking anyone that you know, or even people you don’t know, for money. While family and friends can be part of this, that is not what we are talking about. Instead we are referring to people in your community or those in the real estate community. These individuals want to make money, however, they don’t want to own properties. This unique lending creates the flexibility to use it for small amounts, fix up costs, monthly payments, large amounts, and so much more! Let’s take a closer look.
The struggles with budgets.
There are a lot of people right now who are struggling with their budgets. This is because everything has gone up. From taxes and insurance, to the cost of gas, budgets are being stretched more and more every day. This is where peer to peer lending can help people to escape their financial struggles. Peer lenders, who have money in their IRA, are looking for better returns. At the same time real estate investors and business owners are looking for better lending options. By working with real people again, both the borrower and lender can benefit.
Peer to peer lending can replace traditional loans.
Peer to peer is centered on finding people who are willing and want to get into a win win situation. As investors, we want to replace some or all of the funding that we normally receive from traditional lenders. These traditional lenders include banks, hard money lenders, and private lenders. By replacing all of that with a peer to peer bucket of money, you can create a faster, easier, and cheaper option. There is no need to be fearful! Peer to peer has been around since before banks were even established.
Peer to peer provides flexibility
Many investors and business owners wonder what they can use peer to peer lending for and what the dollar amounts are.

The beautiful thing about peer to peer is that there is always funding available from $10K to 10 million. It all depends on what you need and who you work with.
