We only lend money for real estate projects or refinances in the State of Georgia.
Georgia Private Loans is an Atlanta-based private lending company that focuses on short-term loans secured by real estate. Our clients utilize our loans, often referred to as "bridge" or "hard money" loans, when timing is a critical economic issue.
We are a direct lender and will not broker your deal out. There are no unfront fees.
We are able to fund our loans within days. The fastest turnaround that we have had is we got the request early in the morning and by 3pm we were closing the loan. Please be courtesy and give us as much time as possible but if we need to turn on a dime for our customer then we can do this.
We offer two significant advantages over banks and other financial institutions: speed and flexibility. We will have your loan underwritten within 24 hours instead of 24 days at a normal bank.
Underwriting complete within 24 hours of submittance of required documentation. 2 Day Closings.
