As an investor, you need a lender that can partner with you to help create and execute strategy to maximize profits, not just be an order taker.

We have found there are 3 situations where it makes sense to outsource lending to us:

  1. You are unsure who or how to get your deal done
  2. Your “go to” lender can’t get the deal done and you don’t have time to build new relationships
  3. You are an active business owner or investor and it has become more beneficial for you to spend your time working on your business than dealing with the minutiae of securing financing.

With our process of one underwrite based on the strategy we help set for you, we can quickly get through multiple lenders and match you with the right lender and terms to maximize your profits.

In our network on lending partners, we can fund nearly any loan request over $250k especially if it is secured by real estate. This includes apartments, hotels, mobile home parks, self storage, investment properties, restaurants, c-stores, SBA, etc

We also offer many different forms of bridge lending (aka hard money), depending on the asset and the location.

Non Recourse lending varies by asset class. For single family portfolio loans, we need a loan amount over $500k. For Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac agency debt, a loan amount of $1 MM and for all other commercial lending, over $3MM.

Yes, we have many different lending options to free up trapped equity and reset Fannie/Freddie lending. This includes both recourse and non recourse lending. Check out the podcast interview with The Real Estate Guys Here.

First, as active investors we think like you and can help translate that to our lenders. Second, our model is much different because of our ability to help with strategy and sequence debt among several different lenders simultaneously which we help manage for you. We in essence act like a lender, including fully underwriting the loan and credit memo (to a YES on your behalf), with all supporting documents, in house with our experienced credit team. The only exception is that we outsource the funding to one or more of our lending partners depending on the strategy. Keep in mind we do not pull credit until a lending partner is secured.

When we write up your loan request, we do it with an anticipated rate and terms that makes sense for your request from both the lending side but also return on investment, if applicable. Our lenders determine the terms, but we help identify terms that are acceptable to you on the front end, so we aren’t wasting time with lenders that can’t meet that request.

Yes, depending on the asset class we can do ground up construction and rehab loans. 

This includes but is not limited to single family rentals, multi family apartments, self storage, assisted living, and commercial.

In this environment it is much easier to get these types of loans if the end result is stabilization and permanent lending vs a build to sell.

We earn a success fee on the amount of debt we secure for you based on the size and difficulty of the loan. Typically this is 1-5% of the loan amount with the larger percentage for the smaller and more difficult loans. We have a minimum fee of $5,000. You will know what that fee is before we begin. In many instances, that fee is part of the loan request, not in addition to.  Also, with our experience and ability to help you negotiate, in many instances we can actually SAVE you money and/or equity which more than exceeds our fee.

No, if we can’t fund the loan within our network we don’t get paid. This makes us a partner with you on your request because we don’t get our fee until your loan closes. Our team will proactively reach out with updates on documents needed on a daily basis so you are aware of what items remain.

However, we do reserve the right to charge for our time if there is a chance a deal may not go through because of known issues.

Not only our lender list but the key decision makers at those institutions are our intellectual property. We have cultivated and established these key relationships over many years. We also know how to properly represent you to our trusted lending partners. 

If many brokers or representatives are approaching the same lender and their team for the same request, the lender will get suspicious and you are out of a relationship to fund your project. That could blow up your deal. By shopping around, you may think you are saving money, but you actually be risking your deal.

If you are happy with the terms of your lender then there is no reason to engage with us. However, if the terms aren’t acceptable and you need help establishing a new relationship we would be glad to assist.

We don’t have minimum credit score requirements. Realistically you will need a 640 and above, and the higher the better with some lenders requiring scores over 700.  We should also note that any negative history on your credit report such as late payments, foreclosures and bankruptcies will drastically reduce our chances of securing your funding.

On permanent lending, usually 20%-25% down, but each request is different and the loan must meet the debt servicing requirements of the lender. Another way to say this to determine the down payment, we work backwards from the debt servicing.

Yes! We love them! We are proud sponsors of The Real Estate Guys Radio program and events. We are also familiar with many other syndicator mentoring groups that help investors.

$250k minimum and no max on permanent lending. On bridge lending our max is $1.5MM

Commercial lenders don’t issue pre approval letters. The lending is based off the cash flow of the asset that is the collateral and the guarantors financial statements. When a client engages with us, we send out a complete needs based on the loan request. We also send out a secured link to upload the documents. To get a head start on the documents needed, I suggest using a cloud service like Dropbox with separate folders that contain the following information:   (For Borrower): LLC in existence or to be formed
  • Operating Agreement, when available
  • Certificate of Existence, when available
  • Tax ID Number, when available
  • Brief history of your business
  • Use of funds
  • Copy of Appraisals, if available
  • Leases
  Each Individual Borrower
  • Three Years Personal Tax Returns (including all Schedules)
  • Three Years W-2s, if applicable
  • Current paystub, if applicable
  • Personal Financial Statement dated within 90 days (to be sent)
  • Personal Debt Schedule to include monthly payments (to be sent)
  • Color copy of Driver’s License & Second Form of ID (passport, social security card, voters card, etc)
  • Resume’ or Bio
      If any guarantor is 10% or more owner in any other business please provide the following items for that business:
  • Three Years Tax Returns (including all Schedules & K-1’s)
  • Balance Sheets for 2018 & YTD
  • P&L’s for 2018 & YTD
  • Business Debt Schedule (to be sent separately)
  Keep in mind this is just the beginning, as information comes in we will ask for clarifying documents or statements so we can get a solid understanding of you, your business and your needs. The faster we get this information, the faster we can get an approval. We cannot get an approval until we have 100% of the information.

Our clients hire us to represent them and the loan request for a new lending relationship we do a full and complete underwrite. We try and answer all the questions the underwriter will have on the front end so the approval process is smooth and easy. In most existing banking relationships, an updated PFS and tax return is all that is sometimes needed. However, with any new relationship, we want to present you and your request in the best light possible through the eyes of the underwriter.  With the increased regulations on lending, every “t” must be crossed and “I” dotted. When our trusted lender receives your request and supporting documentation, there should be complete clarity in who you are and the request needed.

The approval process can take as long or as short as you want. You are in complete control. When we send out the initial needs list, our team can typically underwrite the package within a couple of business days IF WE GET 100% OF THE DOCUMENTS BACK. 99% is not 100%. Also keep in mind there will be many follow up questions if you are an active investor or business owner to help clarify the picture and the ask.  

Also remember, the appraisal will NOT be ordered until there is an approval and signed term sheet. That is part of the process that cannot be controlled and can take 2-3 weeks. Be sure to allow ample time for your due diligence to account for this unknown.

  • Initial call with our Business Development team
  • Agreement is sent, once executed we send out needs list specific to the request.
  • While underwriting is happening, we are sending out summary to our lenders to get their feedback and gauge interest.
  • When a lender has expressed interest, and once we have 100% of the requested documents and the file underwritten, we will send them the complete package to confirm our underwriting and a term sheet is sent. They are required by law to review our work, this can take anywhere from 1 to 7 days. 
  • Once accepted we make the introduction and the lender will order appraisal(s)

On most ground up or repositioned assets, yes

Not all our loans require studies, but we do suggest at a minimum an Environmental 1
