Fix and Flip Loans
Turning an interest in flipping houses to a viable career as an investor takes knowledge and the ability to make the right decision in an instant. Boston has one of the highest rates of home flipping in the country, which provides plenty of opportunities but also a healthy competition. Investors hoping to get in on the ground floor of a deal while it is still affordable need to be able to act fast. The right house flipping loans can make the difference between a sale and having to return to the drawing board.
In this hot real estate environment for flips, it is not surprising that financing makes all the difference. Fix and flip investors often have to compete with all-cash buyers for the best deals. Applying for a traditional mortgage loan takes far too long — at least a few weeks if not a month or two.
The speed of the loan is one way that Asset Based Lending shines. People who want to sell a property for rehab do not want to wait long if there is a buyer with financing ready to go in a flash. Investors applying with us may be able to close within 10 days, or even just a few days if all the details are provided.
To help investors catch that fantastic opportunity in the shortest amount of time, we offer competitive financing options built for investors with lots of experience. We will also consider applications from first-timers, as long as they have a great plan and the knowledge to execute that plan. We lend up to 100% of the renovations and 85% of the purchase price.
