Frequently Asked Questions for Borrowers

If the lender you reached out to is “verified” or “preferred” and your criteria matches what they lend on, they’ll be contacted immediately upon form submission.  Also, if other qualified lenders in our system also meet your criteria, we’ll have them reach out to you too. 

Expect to hear from your qualified lenders within 24 to 48 hours of your form submission.

Visit the lender profile of your choice and complete a ‘Get Funding’ form. If that lender is “Verified” or “Preferred” (meaning we have personally researched and approved them as a lender) they will reach out to you.  Also, if other qualified lenders match the criteria you’re looking for, we’ll have them reach out to you too.

Glad you asked! We have a way for you to become connected with more like-minded investors as well as several ways to find more properties than you can handle! Check out more info at ConnectedInvestors.com

Our goal here at Connected Investors is to make sure you find the best lender for your deal.  As a result, we’ve matched a few other lenders that meet your criteria so you can get your deal funded faster, cheaper, and better than the competition.

Feel free to reach out to us by calling the number above during normal business hours and we’ll be happy to help in any way we can.

Begin with our Lending Guide. It’s set up as a modified wiki, so you can browse by topic and then navigate into the more niche details and topics by clicking on the wealth of links and related articles within each article. 

If glossary browsing is more your style, you can find it here. You can also download the complete free e-book if you prefer offline access. 

Last but not least, below are our most popular articles. 

We send a monthly newsletter with our most recent Lending Guide additions. The newsletter also features REI trends, industry news and events. Think of it as your regular digest on the private lending market. Sign up for the newsletter now. 

Our Featured Lenders appearing at the top search results are all members of the American Association of Private Lenders. AAPL provides the industry’s code of ethics, best practices and complaint documentation 

For our non-featured lenders, we work closely with AAPL to ensure that none have had unresolved complaints or other issues our users would find objectionable. 

Beyond this, you should still always complete your own due diligence before contacting or working with a private lender. PMLG and AAPL are not a replacement for your own vetting process. Review our full Terms of Use here.

We do not make commission from any loans, however, lenders do pay for their directory listing. This is actually a good thing: in addition to our regular checks with the American Association of Private Lenders to make sure our lenders are all in good standing, paying for their listings ensures that our lenders are serious about working with real estate investors like yourself.

  1. Start your search here.
  2. Enter the criteria that most closely match your deal. 
  3. Browse the lender profiles. Many of them provide further details about the kinds of deals they look for. The directory also provides phone, email and website links for further research and due diligence. 
  4. Click the “Send Lenders My Deal” button to connect with several lenders at once. Provide details on your deal; we’ve got a few suggestions to get you started (lenders will also get your search criteria). From there, you can pick which lenders to send to. You’ll get an email confirmation reminding you what you sent and who you sent it to. 
  5. Lenders will then get in touch with you, although you can also use their contact information to reach out to them directly. 
  6. If you’re not ready to contact lenders yet, you can email your search or an individual lender profile to refer to later.
You may also want to review our Lending Guide to find out more about how to vet and work with private lenders. 

It’s possible that there are no lenders in our directory who provide loans for that criteria. 

Please contact us with your deal information so we can work to find lenders to add to our directory who will fit your needs.  

We can’t make promises or guarantees here, but we can try, and the more people who let us know they need a deal type, the better.

No. Each lender has their own application process. Sending your deal provides them with further information so they can see if that preliminary criteria fit theirs.  The more information you provide when sending your deal, the better your chances of connecting with a lender willing to finance. We leave it up to you to decide what information you want to provide beyond the search criteria, although we do provide suggestions on what to send. Start your search here.

Please contact us to let us know what you’re experiencing.  

Frequently Asked Questions for Lenders

Visit your lender profile account within the directory and click on the “claim listing” button to update your information.

Because we personally research each of our verified lenders, we need the prospective lender to create an account and ‘add a listing’ in order for our Team to review the submission.

Please complete the above contact us form and one of our representatives will reach out to you.  

Preferred lenders will be at the top of the search results, no recommended lenders within their profile listing, preferred status badge, and will receive unverified lender leads. 

Verified lenders will be secondary in search results, they will have recommended lenders within their profile listing, and they will have a verified status badge.

This is based upon your Connected Investors Lender enrollment agreement. If you are not a verified or preferred lender, you will need to complete the contact us form to become one so you can start getting new qualified leads.

Here are some quick links to the different places you’ll find information.
