Financing for First House Flip

3 Replies

Hi Bigger Pockets Community! We bought a piece of lakefront property, cleared it, cleaned it up, and made a pretty good profit off of it. Now that I know more about Capital Gains tax we just bought another piece of lakefront property under our LLC (we are licensed contractors). After we sell this one we should have about $50,000 or so to invest on our next project. We are working on building up funds through flipping. Just seems to make sense, since I am a licensed contractor and Realtor. Eventually, my husband and I will get into multi family investing for long term investments.

Since $50,000 isn't enough to buy and rehab a home in my area (or most areas) I'm thinking about working with LendingOne on financing. 

Does anyone have experience working with them? 

That's a great strategy and exactly how I got my business started, good luck to you!

I do not have any experience with them, but I have used Do Hard Money in the past when I was just getting started. They do a great job of making sure your flip is going to be profitable and they will also help you manage your flip throughout the process. I will say they are expensive though, and really hit you with fees upon origination.

I also have experience with Finance of America once I had some cash. They were able to get me a line of credit so I could do more and more flips without the hassle of closing on each loan. I would highly recommend them.

I know that wasn't your question, but thought I'd give you some more options.

Best of luck,
