Private lending doesn’t need to be complicated. We are private money lenders that can quickly get you through the lending process and on your way to property ownership. We work with residential, commercial and agricultural properties. We know each of our investors personally. Our investors are members of our local community, which means the interest you pay on your loan is filtered back into our local economy.

Ken Carter, as owner and broker, sets loan terms and makes all approval decisions in-house, giving Yolo County Realty the ability to take on unique loans and devise a plan for the borrower. We have the ability to quickly review, approve, and close a deal because we utilize the expertise of our in-house staff for property walk-throughs and loan term approval. No offsite underwriting staff is utilized, which means no surprises for you.

Our process is simple. Please use the Easy Money loan application on this page and submit to us. Or if you prefer, we can complete your loan application over the phone. If necessary, we can also help you create a loan exit strategy to improve your credit, allowing you to eventually qualify for a conventional loan.
