Can someone help me answer a question about Lending Home?

9 Replies

Hey all! I have been trying to find out from Lending Home how many credit lines are needed and for how long do they have to be open to qualify for their fix and flip or rental home loan. If anyone here knows, I would greatly appreciate it. I have been trying to get an answer directly from Lending Home, but for some reason I am unable to. I might get a quicker response on here.

Thank you to all in advance!!

If you can't get a straight answer from them, it may be time to find a different lender with fix and flip loans available

Hi Crystal,

I can't speak for Lending Home, but coming from the hard money space, most lenders do not require that you have existing or open credit lines in order to qualify for financing.

However, hard money lenders will generally require that you can show some amount of liquidity. This liquidity can often take various forms; cash in checking/savings accounts, $ in retirement accounts, $ in stocks/bonds, etc. 

Hope this helps,

Michael

What @Michael Kinsella said. If you can't even get them on the phone to answer some basic questions, that is an immediate red flag. Imagine how fun it would be to close a loan with them with all of the back and forth that takes place! 

Cash reserves are going to be the #1 qualifier. Lenders see other open debt as increased risk usually.

Your rep for LendingHome isn't doing you any favors.  I have a great contact there.  PM me if you want his contact information.  He'll tell you you need.

 

@Crystal Thomas I can send you my regional director that I deal with at Lending Home if you want she has been great to work with. Also, checkout Residential Capital Partners based out of Dallas, TX as another hard money lender.
