We're not just another private or hard money lender.
Securing funding for real estate investing can be a challenge and drain your time and resources. Banks are reluctant to provide real estate investing funding, finding private lenders for real estate loans is difficult, and getting a flexible real estate owner-financed loan is next to impossible. Investor Loan Source (ILS) was designed with you in mind and was created by real estate investors for real estate investors to solve the problems of financing. Our single mission is to provide high-quality investment property loans to private real estate investors with the lowest costs possible.
Our process for providing real estate investor funding is unique. We place more emphasis on the hard asset and value of the collateral (property) and less on the borrower. Our asset-based real estate investment loan model means we can provide more money to more investors than is available from standard bank loan models. If you’ve been seeking out a hard money loan for a real estate investment, you know that finding lenders who will loan cash for buying and fixing properties on a short timeline is difficult. At ILS, providing real estate investor loans is our business; it’s all we do. We offer several business real estate loan products designed to serve a variety of investor and property profiles, including loans for properties to sell on owner finance.
Your customer experience matters to us. Our loan products were created to meet the needs of today’s investor, our office staff is reliable and highly trained, and we have simplified a typically arduous process. ILS is more than simply a lender for real estate investors; we’re your partner in building a successful and lucrative real estate business. When you work with ILS to finance your real estate deals, you’ll find the products and the help you need to take your business to the next level.

"IlS cash is the best lender in the business if you are an investor and need funding with no hassle. The staff is professional and easygoing, I have done over 10 deals with this company.

"Investor Loan Source, Wow.. never in my life have I ever worked with such professional and excellent staff. I love them ! They are really time efficient and get things done!! trust me! they are my #1 go to loan company."
"After 30 years of working in corporate America, I knew there was a better way. I started looking for a professional, private lender that understood the Houston/Galveston market - who could help me buy properties and realize the best possible return. Tom Berry and the Investor Loan Source team of lenders was the right choice. Tom and his team are very knowledgeable. They will recommend you to not purchase a property if the numbers do not work correctly. Since 2015 I have purchased several properties through them. Now my daughter works with them as well, and she has purchased 3 homes in 2017. She and I are excited about the potential that now exists. We are looking to buy another 4 to 5 rentals in 2018! For a young person starting out, Tom has made it easy to get involved in the real estate market. We are very glad to have a professional investor like him and his team in our corner providing excellent resources. I would highly recommend Investor Loan Source if you are looking to buy a rental, to keep or even to rehab a property. Working with Tom and his team has been one of the best decisions we have made."

"Investor Loan Source recently funded the purchase and repair of a rental property I own in Corpus Christi, TX. The group at Investor Loan Source was very professional, helpful, and courteous throughout the entire process. Draw requests were funded in an extremely timely manner and the entire process was efficient. ILS provides asset based lending which allows them to help you in ways others lenders cannot. I would recommend ILS to anyone needing a fix and flip or buy, fix and hold loan."
