We offer loans against non-owner occupied investment properties. We offer short-term (12-24 month) bridge loans for fix and flips or rehab to hold deals, and 12-36 month bridge loans for commercial properties (light industrial, warehouses, and offices). We also provide long-term funding (30-year term), for residential rental properties of 1-4 units (we may consider 5-9 units on a case by case basis).
