What is Fix-and-Flip Financing?

Funding for fix and flip loans is sometimes called hard money. Typically these loans are given for shorter periods of time. They are short term loans by design. Interest rates are usually higher than traditional loans given by a bank. However, the terms and access to the funds are much easier to get in most cases. Lenders who offer fix and flip loans usually do not require as much paperwork from an investor client in order to be approved and receive the loan for their fix and flip project. The benefits of these loans are that they offer the investor client the ability to quickly execute purchase contracts and close cash-only deals. Fix and Flip loans help investors maximize their available cash on hand so that their operations can run smoothly.

Living in California

California is among the largest states in the nation, both in terms of land size and population, so there is a huge range of great places to live.  It is a popular destination for people who want to leave cold weather behind, as well as for those seeking employment in the tech, healthcare, and entertainment industries.  However, California is also one of the most expensive places to move to in America.  California has an endless array of places to live, each with its own style and cost of living. Some of the best destinations include Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Sacramento and the Bay Area. California became known as the Golden State for a few golden reasons. First, it was home to the California Gold Rush that began in 1848 when a lucky duck found a bit of gold. Since everyone wanted in on the action, 300,000 people moved to the area. Another reason for the nickname is because every spring California is covered with beautiful golden poppies, the state flower.  The median home value is approximately $539,400 which has risen to 6.1% over the past year. There is a large amount of new construction underway pretty much everywhere along the state’s western coast, from San Francisco down to San Diego.  The mid-line of the state, from Sacramento down to San Bernardino, also has a lot of development in process.   Our office and headquarters of Optimus Capital is located in the beautiful state of California. With many years of experience, the Optimus Capital team has organized operations around business practices, integrity, efficiency, and practical approaches to real estate lending.
