Pre-Qualify for a Hard Money Loan Today

Contact us today regarding your Los Angeles private money loan scenario.

We pride ourselves on having the best customer service in the industry and you can expect to speak with one of our team members immediately and it’s possible to receive same day pre-approval.

Crescent Lenders is a direct local Los Angeles private lender (not a broker), managing our own funds which allows us to finance your deal in 5 to 7 days.

Types of Loans We Fund 

Crescent Lenders provides residential and commercial hard money loans in Los Angeles and across the state of California.

We fund all types of private money loans, including:

  • purchase
  • bridge
  • fix and flip
  • refinance
  • cash-out, probate, rental property and BRRRR loans
  • along with any other asset based loan whereby real estate is used as collateral

Qualifying for a private money loan with Crescent Lenders is significantly easier than getting a traditional bank loan.

Our primary concern is the value of the collateral property and the loan to value ratio (LTV); we are not heavily focused on a borrowers credit score or employment history.

Top-Rated Provider

My existing hard money loan was coming due on my retail center and I was shopping around for a refi with a better rate since I was not yet able to qualify for bank financing, Mario was able to give me the best rate of the lenders I reached out to...
- Steve S.
I’m a commercial real estate broker and do some fix and flipping on the side here in SoCal. I’ve used a few different HMLs in the past but have created a good relationship with these guys and have repeatedly used them and will continue to do so going forward.
- Justin R.
Was recommended these lenders from a friend of mine. They were able to come thru on 2 deals for me over the past year, but also rejected a few others I had that were not as attractive. Mario is a nice guy and will not waste your time if the deal doesn’t work for him.
- James M.
I found Crescent Lenders using a hard money lending directory website called Moolahlist that makes sure all the lenders on its platform are licensed and legitimate. There are so many scam lenders in the hard money lending industry, I was happy to find these guys and was even happier with the service they provided... quick and easy funding for my rehab project.
- Edward B.
I don’t usually invest in real estate but I came across a great deal in my neighborhood and could not wait on a bank to approve me because the deal would have been gone. I called a few hard money lenders and decided on Crescent Lenders. They were able to get me funding quickly at a good rate. This enabled me to make a great offer which was successful. Highly recommend!
