Just visit our website, FlipFunding.com, and click the “Apply for Funding tab”. You will then need to complete the Short Private Money application. After submission, we will review the deal and follow up with terms immediately.
Are there any up-front fees involved?
Never! This is usually the first sign of a scam.
Are you credit score driven?
No, we are not credit score driven. However, for certain loan products, we must pull a credit report on the borrower.
If I have had a recent bankruptcy, can you still approve me?
Recent bankruptcies are not a problem. We will be interested in learning the situation; however, this is not a deal breaker.
What states do you lend in?
We do lend nationwide, however, there are a few red flag cities and locations we are extremely cautious about. If the project you are interested in funding is within one of these cities we will make you aware right away. Please do not ask for a list of these “red flag” cities, it changes as the market continues to adjust.
How much can I borrow?
We can lend as little as $75,000 to as much as $10,000,000. Our approvals are not solely equity based. We must be sure that the client will be able to afford the monthly interest only payments on the loan they are requesting.
Is there a maximum amount you will lend for rehab/repair costs?
There is no maximum limit to the rehab being requested; however, we do prefer that the rehab costs do not exceed 50% of the purchase price.
Is down payment required?
Most loan programs we offer require a downpayment of at least 10% for experienced borrowers and 20% for first-time borrowers.
What are your rates?
Annual rates can vary, depending on experience, LTV and which programs the client qualifies for. Rates can be anywhere between 8-12%.
How quickly can you approve me?
Once an application is submitted in completion (complete application and documentation package), we can have an approval within 24 hours, but usually within minutes. This approval will disclose any and all programs the client qualifies for complete with rates, terms, points, down payment etc. The client will then have the opportunity to ask questions, address any concerns and come to a decision if Flip Funding is a good solution for their funding needs.
How long are loan approvals good for?
The approvals are property specific and only issued for a single transaction.
Will you provide a proof of funds letter? (or pre-qual letter)
Yes. Once a client is pre-qualified, we can begin issuing proof of funds letters. We can submit these as frequently as needed as general letters or specific to the property address and offer price the client requests to be disclosed.
How quickly can you close?
We can close deals as soon as 5 -10 business days. It is contingent upon requested documents being submitted in a timely manner.
What documentation is required?
We do have stated programs as well as full-doc loan programs. The approval the client is issued will disclose which programs are stated income and which programs are full documentation. There is a documentation checklist of all items that will be requested after your approval has been received.
Do you require an appraisal or BPO?
Yes, we do require an appraisal or BPO. This must be ordered in-house prior to closing. Previous valuations will not be accepted.
Will you accept a recent appraisal, broker values or recent comps when evaluating a property?
Absolutely not. We can look at comps or broker values when doing an initial evaluation of the project to help the client decide if it is a logical project, however, the final loan amount will be based off an appraisal ordered in house.
Do you do construction loans?
Yes, we do have new construction loans. 100% funding options too!
