THE FINE PRINT

  • Sellers who make repairs and upgrades prior to selling generally sell for more and in less time.  However, each property and project is unique and therefore no results are guaranteed.

  • Maximum loan term is six months. No monthly payments are due during the term; the loan is paid off in one lump sum at closing when your property is sold.
