Frequently Asked Questions

What's the best option for a pro-flipper like me?

Fix and flip property loans and exposure limits are designed for experienced investors. Having more real estate experience will qualify investors for larger Exposure Limits and potentially better loan terms. Because this product is designed for pros, the time to approve an individual or business is short.

How much can I borrow in total?

If you’re applying for exposure limit approval as an individual, you may qualify for a limit up to $1MM. If applying as an entity, the maximum exposure limit is capped at $10MM. Individual Fix and Flip property loans are available up to $3MM.

How do you calculate how much I can borrow?

We consider both the loan-to-value (LTV), which measures the fair market value, and the loan-to-cost ratio (LTC), which measures the total cost of buying and renovating. We always choose the lesser of the LTV and LTC calculations, which protects both you and our investors.

Will you lend to foreign nationals?

At this time, we do not lend to foreign nationals.

What kinds of personal credit information are required?

For Individual or Business approval, we only require background checks, credit reports, and track records up to a $4MM limit. If requesting an exposure limit over $4MM, we also ask for income tax returns from the previous year.

Do I have to form an LLC or put my assets in a trust?

No, Exposure Limit approvals and Fix and Flip property loans may be closed as an LLC, a corporation, or an individual.

What kind of insurance do I have to buy?

For fix and flip loans, we require Hazard, Builder’s Risk, and Commercial General Liability insurance. We also require that borrowers carry flood insurance on properties in a flood zone. The maximum allowable deductible per property is 5 percent of the insured value. Our preferred insurer is Aon Affinity.

Will I be subject to a prepayment penalty?

We require a 90-day minimum interest charge, but otherwise there are no penalties.

Will flipping be as easy as it looks on TV?

TV shows are for entertainment only, but we’re the real deal. We know the real estate investment market, and we’ll work with you to make sure your project is handled quickly and efficiently. Along the way, we’ll make sure you have the opportunity to meet qualified settlement companies, knowledgeable permit expeditors, and other vendors who will help you be successful.
