The rising appeal of private lending in Quebec  

Private lending, often overshadowed by traditional banking, is coming into its own in Quebec. With rising interest rates in Canada, the gap between conventional and private home loans is shrinking, making private loans increasingly attractive. PADS, a fintech startup, is leading this shift with its private home equity loans, which start at an appealing rate of 9.99%, depending on the client's profile.  

Why consider private lending?

The current economic climate is challenging. Traditional banks have tightened their loan requirements and their interest rates have climbed. This has pushed many Quebecers to consider private lending. Rather than focusing solely on credit history, private lenders consider home equity, offering a new avenue for financial support.

Several reasons make private lending an attractive option for many:

Credit Issues: Traditional banks put substantial weight on a borrower's credit score. For those with lower scores, securing a loan can be difficult. Private lenders, however, consider other factors like home equity, providing more accessibility to those with credit issues.  

Quick Access to Funds: Private lenders typically have shorter approval and funding times than traditional banks. If you need quick access to funds, private lending could be the answer.

Flexible Terms: The loan terms and repayment options offered by private lenders are generally more flexible than those of traditional banks, allowing for a more tailored financing solution.

Real Estate Investing: If you're a real estate investor looking to leverage existing property for additional investments, private lending can be an excellent choice.

Debt Consolidation: For individuals with high-interest debts, such as credit card debts, private lending can provide a way to consolidate these debts into one loan with a lower interest rate.

Business Financing: Entrepreneurs and small business owners who can't secure a traditional business loan might find private lending a feasible alternative.  

Financial Emergencies: In the face of unexpected expenses, like medical emergencies or urgent home repairs, the quick approval and funding times of private lenders can be a lifesaver.  

As interest rates rise and the gap between conventional and private home loans narrows, these reasons become even more significant, making private lending an increasingly viable option for many Quebecers.

A closer look at private home equity loans

Private home equity loans are a powerful tool, leveraging the value of your home to unlock financial possibilities. Whether you're considering launching a business, consolidating debt, or managing personal expenses, your home's equity could be your ticket to financial flexibility.

However, with traditional private lenders, there are some caveats to consider. The industry often suffers from a lack of transparency, leading to unexpected surprises when it comes to the loan's terms and conditions. Another common concern is anonymity, as borrowers typically deal with mortgage brokers and don't always know who their private lender is. Finally, loans from private lenders tend to have shorter terms, which may not fit everyone's financial plans or circumstances.
