We have funded properties as quickly as 1 day. If there are no unusual circumstances (i.e. title issues, all required documents in hand), then the closing can proceed as soon as the appraisal has been completed and title is cleared. Usually this can be accomplished within 1 week to 10 days. You do your best and we will respond in kind.
We currently lend in Georgia, Nashville, Florida and the Carolinas. Other markets will be added soon. If you have a project in another market, contact us and we’ll discuss if we can lend on it.
No, our loans are usually for a 12 month term or less, but we have arranged financing for more than 12 months in certain situations, particularly commercial projects. We do have permanent lending partners that will be able to assist with your long term needs on single family properties.
We are a private lender with private money. We take risks that banks ordinarily would not and therefore charge a higher rate for the use of our funds. You will find that although the funds may cost more, it is less expensive than having a venture partner to finance your project.
No. We only make loans for commercial, business and investment purposes.
We will look at multifamily projects from 2 units to 200 and more. Bring us office buildings, retail, industrial, lots to be developed, and new construction.
Yes, your credit is important to us, but there is no credit score requirement and it is not the most important factor in financing your project. Your ability to repay a loan as required, your investment in the property, the cost of the property and the value after repairs are also considerations in our decision to lend.
It is certainly possible. We are a private lender, and as such, are not tied to the myriad of regulations that banks must follow. We underwrite and make our own loans based upon our decisions and understanding of the marketplace and your particular property. Usually if the property is worth it, we will give your loan request serious consideration.
These are acronyms for loan to value (LTV) – the value of the property in relation to the loan on the property and after-repaired-value (ARV) – the value of the property after all improvements or construction has been completed.
It has been incorrectly described as “hard” to find or “hard” to pay, but typically it is a secured real estate loan for investment purposes. The property is often enhanced via renovations that improve the value. The property is then sold or refinanced. The property provides the security in the event of default by the borrower. We are most interested in creating long term relationships helping good borrowers successfully invest in real estate.
