Yes. We do an appraisal using LOCAL appraisers. (Using appraisers from large, national appraisal management companies can impact appraisal quality and slow down the loan process.)
*We also have the ability for seasoned investors (7+ deals completed) to use software on your cell phone that allows your superintendent to take pictures, rather than doing a full inspection.
**We also offer desktop appraisals for fix & flip loans. We need interior photos and a budget for this style appraisal.
We give investors fast, creative lending solutions to many challenges that a typical lender cannot or will not.
If game-changing success is your goal,
then give us a shout!
Fill out our deal form and get a quote in under two minutes. Once complete, someone on our team will follow up with a customized lending solution and terms.
We then issue preliminary pricing for your review. If the price is right, and you wish to move forward with iFC, a formal term sheet will be digitally issued for your signature. Sign and we will kick things into high gear!
Paperwork sucks, but we are here to help you along the way. After we collect the agreement of sale, construction budget, title, and insurance contact information from you, we order your appraisal from a LOCAL company, (not a national appraisal management company, which can impact appraisal quality and delay your loan).
Provide us with supporting documents in a timely fashion (your real estate experience, driver’s license, entity information, and source of cash), and we will get you to closing in as little as 7 days.
