What is Alternative lending?
Alternative lending describes a wide range of loan options available to borrowers outside of a traditional loan. These options are typically presented when a borrower is unable to obtain traditional financing. Generally decreased profitability or losses drive the need to restructure debt and improve working capital. This is typically accomplished by moving debt onto owned real estate with longer amortizations or interest only payments.
How do I qualify?
Alternative loan solutions are customized to address specific circumstances. Qualification is by consultation and a preliminary underwrite of the credit request. Please contact us to discuss your needs.
