The Editor for the three sites is Devin Thorpe, who calls himself a champion of social good.
On Thursday, February 18, 2016 at 5:00 pm EST, Patch of Land's Chief Marketing Officer, AdaPia d'Errico will join Devin Thorpe for a live discussion about Patch of Land’s efforts to rebuild America following the economic earthquake that hit the county in 2008 with its epicenter in the real estate market.
AdaPia explains, "Private lending is known as ‘hard money’ lending; it carries a negative stigma, and for good reason. Predatory pricing, no oversight, and basically no protection for borrowers and even for investors meant that these loans and this type of lending have been extremely risky.”
She adds, “And it was the only kind of lending available to real estate professionals following the financial crisis, because banks could not and would not lend on what they deemed to be risky real estate transactions – property prices were the lowest EVER, and no one would take the risk of lending to people who were trying to rebuild America after the crash.”
