Frequently Asked Questions
What is Private Lending?
Operating outside the rigidities of conventional financial institutions, Private Lending provides the capital needed to fund complex and/or unique real estate development opportunities.
Private Lending is an old business that predates major banks, credit cards, and finance companies, and in its simplest form, involves individuals borrowing money for a real estate project from a lender in exchange for an interest payment. Norfolk
Capital’s Private Lending services involve the financing of specific, well-defined, and equity-secured commercial and residential real estate projects.
Norfolk Capital’s experience in real estate acquisitions, management, and development give it the expertise to quickly assess the viability of complex opportunities and non-conventional situations and, where required, deliver a fast closing in as little as fifteen days.
What do I need to qualify for a loan?
We define creditworthiness in terms different from most banks. We emphasize the value of the collateral available and the experience of the borrower. Unlike banks, we are not primarily interested in past ability to pay. For us, creditworthiness is a concept not etched in stone; we believe in flexibility and the concept of creative financing.
Why should I choose Norfolk Capital?
First and foremost, personal service. You are not a nameless face; your needs and concerns are our needs and concerns.
Secondly, speed of action. When you deal with Norfolk Capital, you are not dealing with a loan committee, which may meet every few weeks. Rather, action on a loan can be taken at a moment’s notice when you need it to happen, not at the convenience of a committee.
What are your lending terms?
Most of our loans are relatively short term ranging from six to twelve months. However, we have the flexibility to provide both shorter and longer terms.
