131: Leveraging Hard Money Lending and Finding Niche Opportunities with Bill Fairman

The reason we love hard money lending is that it fills a niche. And when you fill a niche, you’re entering a business with limited competition. Bill Fairman is going to share the secret sauce, where you’re working with larger companies instead of competing with their rates. This is exactly what Bill and his company Carolina Hard Money did. They stayed to their roots, found a niche, and leveraged the resources of the big players. Not every recipe is going to be perfect. Some lenders have found niches to fund loans that most traditional banks don’t or can’t fund. There’s always that possibility. There are lots of opportunities out there, you have to be a little bit creative. In this episode, we get creative with Bill as he breaks down the possibilities of the lending niche with Big Mike.
