FAST! In order to settle we must, at a minimum, inspect the property, meet the borrower and get title insurance. Our return customers close even faster than first time borrowers.
Typically, we are able to inspect and disburse funds in three to five business days or less.

We do all sorts of loan scenarios including acquisition, refinances, rehab and new construction loans. We do a variety of bridge (short term) loans. Run your scenario past us and we’ll determine if it is something we can do. We always aim to find a way to make it work. We do not, however, finance owner occupied residential properties or provide personal loans.
There is no middle man. We make all of the decisions. Here are the steps:
- Once we have a signed application (no application fee required) we run a credit report (for first time borrowers).
- In some cases we ask for additional financial and property information
- Meet borrower
- Property analysis – comparable sales and value
- Inspect property – we require a $300 non-refundable deposit at the time of inspection which is credited back at settlement if the loan closes.
- We then provide a loan proposal
It depends. For an established customer, we will provide a pre-approval letter in exchange for a $100 non-refundable deposit. If the loan closes the fee is credited at settlement.
