Fix and Flip Loans Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Fix and Flip Loan?
Fix and Flip loans are loans designed for real estate investors looking to buy and sell a property, rehabilitate it, and then sell it within a short time frame. Typically, the loan consists of the acquisition (buy or refinance) costs, the renovation costs, and can sometimes include the interest payments. Since renovation costs are held in reserve until work is completed, financing the payments allows you to hold on to your cash to get work done before the draws are done.
What is the difference between Hard Money and Conventional Loans?
Banks take a long time -sometimes months – to approve loans, and often have much stricter criteria to approving deals. If you have your information ready, we can close in days or weeks. Hard money lenders have more flexibility in lending. Insteading of focusing heavily on your financial background, we look at more common sense things like the project potential, your experience, and your financial history. Hard money lending isn’t for everyone, but is a good alternative to consider depending on your circumstances.
What interest rate are your loans?
Interest rates start at 8.49%, but are dependent on a number of factors, including project type and complexity, value of the project, loan size, location, and borrower experience.

- Residential properties with 1-4 units
- Multifamily projects with 5+ units
- Mixed-use projects
- Commercial properties
We fund all types of situations, from acquisitions to refinance, and from buy and hold to sell.
What do I need to apply?
The application process is quick. Be prepared with:
Information about the project:
- Property Type
- Acquisition cost
- Renovation boals, budget and an estimated renovated value
Information about yourself:
- Experience with similar projects
- Job and stated income
- Liquidity (cash and retirement accounts)
- Other real estate owned
- Credit score – We only run credit if we have to. But keep in mind that low credit is not a barrier to getting a loan.
What documentation is required?
Documentation may depend on the situation and requirements, but typical requirements include
- Sales Contract
- Construction Budget
- Bank statements
- A list of properties you currently own (an REO Schedule)
- Experience with Similar projects
- Credit and background checks
- Rental income (for rental projects)
- LLC Operating Agreement or Articles of Incorporation
How much money do I need to close?
Liquidity at closing depends on a number of factors, but will include funds for:
- Down payments as low as 10% of acquisition
- Money to start work on your project
- Closing costs and loan fees
- Interest payment reserves
Some of this will be collected at closing, some of it we will want to see in your bank statement to make sure you have the liquidity to keep the project moving.
How quickly can you close?
While traditional banks will typically take at least a month to close, we can close in a few days, though this is not the norm. An appraisal is typically what holds up the process, though this is not always required for a loan. If you want to close quickly, make sure you respond quickly to documentation requests and have everything ready.
What States do you lend in?
Do I need an entity to purchase a home or can I purchase as an individual?
We only lend to non-owner occupied properties held by a corporate entity.
Are rehab loans fully funded at closing?
The rehab budget is held in reserves at closing, and typically interest is not charged until the funds are used. Funds are accessed through a draw process. Once a portion of the project is completed, you request a draw inspection. The inspector typically comes out within 48 hours to review work and submits a report. In some areas, this is a member of the Norfolk Team who partners with you throughout the process..
Can I qualify if I have bad credit?
Hard money loans are focused on asset-based underwriting. As a result, credit score is less important than the project and other factors such as your experience. We’ll want to understand the situation behind your credit score, but borrowers with bad credit qualify for hard money loans all the time.
