FIX AND FLIP LOANS FOR SHORT TERM FUNDING REQUIREMENTS
Socotra Capital was one of the first fix and flip lenders out of the Great Recession.
As a loan type, fix and flip is used exclusively for residential real estate opportunities that you are looking to rehab and sell within a short period of time, typically 6 to 9 months from the date of purchase. Investors will purchase a distressed property or fixer upper, with the intention of ‘fixing’ the damage and improving its look. The ultimate goal is for the investor to sell or rent the property under the following three conditions:
- Minimize the renovation expense as much as possible
- Maximize the market value of the property
- Retain the property for the shortest possible time
Good deals on single family homes come up quickly and usually when you least expect it, and investors in the local real estate market are quick to respond. This is where Socotra Capital comes in. When it comes to fixing and flipping, cash and speed are crucial. Real estate investors need the resources to execute their plan and make attractive offers that promise quick closes. For all but the most cash-rich investors, one of the few means of competing is the hard money fix and flip loan.

A fix and flip hard money loan allows borrowers to come in with minimal skin in the game.
We realized that our clients who purchase investment properties perform some level of rehab on the property to get it ready for sale or rental. Occasionally, the rehab can cost more than the actual price of the purchase. In order to serve our clients better, we decided to make our fix and flip loans based on the total project cost. We can lend up to 85% of total project cost in our fix and flip loan program – the rehab money is held back and released as the project is completed.
Socotra Capital’s fix and flip loans provide flexible terms for funding of up to 85 percent of the purchase and rehab costs of the project. We offer hard money loans for fix and flip properties from $100,000 and up, with no prepay penalty and no limit on the number of properties.
Use our fix and flip loans when traditional lending solutions are not available.
Often times, these undesirable properties do not meet FHA guidelines. This means, federal agencies like Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae will not back these loans. These agencies provide money to traditional lending agencies that would typically provide cash to home-buyers. Because federal agencies are not backing the loan, options for borrowers looking to purchase foreclosed properties are limited.
We can often provide you with same-day prequalification on our fix and flip loan so you have the cash fast to take advantage of opportunities when they arise. Please complete our Fix and Flip Loan Interest Short Form to get started.
