Tennessee Fix and Flip, New Construction, & Rental Loans

Asset Based Lending is the premier Tennessee hard money lender, bringing over a decade of loan experience and thousands of projects funded for over $1 Billion. We offer hard money loans for fix and flips and new construction, as well as cash out refinances and term rental loans in Tennessee. ABL specializes in quick closings, approving loans as fast as 24 hours and closing as little as two days with the appropriate paperwork. We focus on flexible underwriting to provide a variety of hard money loan options to best suit your project, whether you’re looking for lowest interest rate, maximum leverage, zero points, or something else.

ABL’s loans in Tennessee are fully serviced in-house, from the underwriting to the draw management, guaranteeing every ABL borrower a five-star experience from the first call to the final payoff. Our team are experts in local Tennessee real estate, understanding the investment needs of a fix and flip in Memphis are much different than a Nashville new construction loan. Whether you’re a new investor working on their first fix and flip in Knoxville or an experienced investor growing their Chattanooga rental portfolio, ABL is ready to partner with you. Fast closings, flexible underwriting, local knowledge, and a streamlined loan process- that’s the ABL Difference. Contact us today to be approved for your Tennessee hard money loan.

Tennessee Hard Money Loans For Real Estate Investors

Quick Closing Fix and Flip Loans

Asset Based Lending partners with real estate investors that know how to transform a distressed or mundane property into a gorgeous home and sell it for a higher value. We understand that most investors don’t have the capital to fund these major rehab projects, so we offer hard money fix and flip loans for real estate investors in Tennessee. These 12-month bridge loans are meant to finance the purchase and rehab of the property, allowing investors to complete their project and earn a profit based on the final sale of the property. ABL flip loans provide funding up to 85% of property purchase price and 100% of the rehab costs. Whether you’re flipping your first property or are a full-time flipper, ABL is ready to finance your next success.

ABL understands that speed and reliability are what investors need from Tennessee hard money lenders so we specialize in closing deals as quickly as 10 days or less, with loan approval in just 24 hours. We offer flexible underwriting for our flip loans so borrowers can choose lower interest rates, maximum leverage, zero points, or another option that suits their needs. Our team are experts in local real estate, understanding that a single-family flip in Memphis needs different criteria than a multi-family flip in Nashville. Whether you’re flipping your first property or are a full-time flipper, ABL is ready to finance your next success. Click here to learn more about our Tennessee fix and flip loans.

Reliable New Construction Loans for Experienced Investors

Housing inventory is at record-lows across Tennessee, which means demand for residential new construction is peaking. ABL provides hard money loans for new construction to real estate investors that want competitive interest rates, flexible underwriting, and fast draw turnarounds. Our hard money new construction loans are only available to experienced investors, builders, and contractors who have recent experience with new construction. These new construction loans allow investors to borrow up to 90% of the land value and 100% of the construction costs.

ABL tailors each new construction loan to match the specific project, providing loan flexibility that’s unmatched by other hard money lenders in Memphis, TN or Knoxville, TN. We assess the investor’s experience level and viability of the proposed build to ensure the deal is profitable for all parties. Click here to learn more details about our TN new construction loans.
