GREENVILLE, S.C — Lima One Capital, already the East Coast’s largest hard money lender, was named South Carolina’s Fastest Growing Company at the 13th annual Fastest Growing Companies ceremony today in Columbia. The award was presented by The Capital Corporation and Integrated Media Publishing and recognized the Greenville-based hard money lender for topping the group of 25 candidate companies. Founded in 2011 by CEO John Warren, an Iraq War veteran, Lima One Capital has pioneered best-in-class lending products for residential real estate investors who intend to renovate a home before reselling it.

“We’ve built Lima One Capital to be strong in hot and cold housing markets,” said Warren. “In up markets investors can make money flipping homes with some simple upgrades, and in down markets heavy grade renovation is often required to ensure a project is profitable. Our hard money loans are attractive to investors regardless of market conditions because we finance renovation costs when banks don’t and provide rapid lending decisions when banks can’t.”

Lima One Capital, headquartered in Greenville, specializes in a 13-month loan and offers rapid underwriting so an investor can compete in real time with cash buyers for the most competitive home sale prices. The company also offers top-notch customer service to all borrowers and prospective borrowers and is able to connect them to certified contractors, real estate agents and closing attorneys.

“Many of our customers are first-time home flippers and they appreciate the level of care and expertise we’re able to give them as they analyze prospective investment properties and project costs,” said Warren. “We add a lot of value to our loans through this ‘high touch’ level of interaction with our customers. We help them succeed.”

Lima One Capital is also committed to hiring veterans. The company is passionate about translating military experience into success in the hard money industry through tailored training programs.

The company has expanded to six new states in 2014 and has plans for further expansion in the first quarter of 2015. Before the expansion, the company actively lent in South Carolina, North Carolina and Georgia.

Transactional Funding Program launched by Hard Money Lending Company Lima One Capital

Hard Money Lending Company Lima One Capital Announces Launch of Transactional Funding Program for Residential Real Estate Investors

Atlanta hard money lender and Charlotte hard money lender, Lima One Capital, LLC has announced the launch of its transactional funding program for residential real estate investors.

In addition to its industry leading loan products, Lima One Capital now will provide transactional funding for real estate wholesalers looking to flip a property to a fellow real estate investors through a double closing.

“We are excited to now provide transactional funding to the many residential real estate wholesalers and investors who are providing an invaluable service to their clients who are searching for quality investment properties,” says CEO John Warren. “Our transactional funding program will help compliment our other short and long-term loan programs for residential real estate investors.”

Real estate investors and wholesalers utilizing Lima One Capital’s transactional funding will find the lowest priced and straightforward cost associated with the loan. The company simply will charge an origination fee of 1.75% with a $1,500 minimum. As with all of its loan programs, Lima One Capital prides itself on no junk fees or hidden costs.

“Our expansion into transactional funding is our company’s latest step to redefining the industry standard for hard money lenders,” says Warren. “We truly are revolutionizing the hard money lending industry that is known for taking advantage of real estate investors, rather than trying to serve them in an honorable and professional manner.”

Initially, Lima One Capital’s transactional funding will be available throughout Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina. The company plans on providing the transactional funding program throughout the U.S. within the next two months.

Transactional funding is a short-term loan utilized by wholesalers to finance the purchase of a real estate property and immediately sell it to another real estate investor through the use of a double closing. Usually, the wholesaler bids on the investment property, gets it under contract, and puts a small amount of capital down. The wholesaler then lines up a different real estate investor who is seeking to purchase an investment property. At the double closing, the wholesaler utilizes transactional funding to purchase the property and then immediately sells it for a profit to the investor. The entire transaction usually takes place within an hour or two.

In addition to transactional funding, Lima One Capital continues to offer short-term loans to real estate investors looking to flip a property and longer-term loans for investors looking to own a rental property.
