Peer-to-peer lending is revolutionizing the post-recession financial landscape by cutting out traditional middlemen (like banks) and democratizing the process of lending money. Over $280 million in peer-to-peer loans were made in the month of November alone, by just two companies. And to date, venture capital firms and forward thinking companies like Google have invested over $850 million into peer-to-peer lending companies in the US alone.
Most peer loans are unsecured. However, Blackhawk investments is leading the industry by developing a niche in secured P2P commercial real estate transactions. Blackhawk Investments pre-qualifies deals that banks can't, at rates that hard-money lenders don't offer. Our lenders receive a secured investment with significantly higher returns than they could get from money markets and CDs. And our borrowers obtain low-cost private loans with flexible terms that they could never get otherwise.
