Private Lending base

by: @mattweidert


All-in-one Airtable template to manage your hard money business. Loan origination, servicing, CRM, and more.

Why do you need it?

I started a hard money side hustle 3 years ago when I was working until 2 am every night as an investment banker. I closed 40 loans in my first 12 months.So how did I keep up and grow so fast?I built this Airtable base to automate and cut down on 90% of the data entry and back office tasks.I am now a full-time private lender and have closed over 250+ loans and over $50 million in deal value.This Airtable base STILL runs my business.Private lending software is expensive, inflexible, and cumbersome (believe me - I've demo'd most of them). You'll pay $1,000+/month plus $5,000 in onboarding and set up costs. Most lenders don't need this.If you want to start lending or are still using an excel spreadsheet to manage your business, it's time for an upgrade.

What do you get?

  • Access to my all-in-one custom base Airtable base within minutes

  • 7 integrated tables to manage loan origination, servicing, and customer relationships

  • Access to my videos on how to use Airtable and the lending features I've designed

  • Airtable is a subscription service, but they offer a FREE month-month plan - only upgrade if you want to add additional features later
