How Capital Fund I Works: the Easy 3-Step Loan Process

At Capital Fund 1, we want to take the mystery out of the hard money lending process. Instead of making you jump through hoops, we have trimmed our application process down to three simple steps.

Fill out the online application & submit required documents (Purchase contract, photos, & planned improvements)

Submit Loan

Our in-house underwriting team reviews your deal and can send out terms as quickly as the same day.

Get Started Now

After choosing your closing date, gather closing documents (escrow, title, & Insurance), and your deal is funded in as little as 24 hours.

Review Your Account

Just 1-2-3 and You’ll Have the Funding You Need.

As an asset-based lender, Capital Fund 1 can move faster than a traditional or institutional lender. When underwriting a loan, we focus more on the real property than individual’s creditworthiness. We do not check credit, borrower financials, or require a 3rd party appraisal. This significant departure from the status quo allows investors to add a quick closing as a value add to their purchase offers. Learn more about the other advantages of hard money.

How Are We Able To Do This?

Another key part of our formula is the dedicated team we have put together. Combined, we have over 100 years of real estate, investing, and lending experience. Our team is geared up to see the value investors are looking to add to a residential or commercial property. Every day, we see the impressive value extraction our borrowers are able to execute by bringing a fully renovated asset to market. Meet the team behind CF1

Here’s What Our Clients Are Saying About Us

  • Capital Fund 1 is the best hard money lender I have ever had the pleasure of working with. They are efficient, timely and through. When I need anything they are right there to help. Being on the Escrow /Title side of things there are some times when I need many things to get the deal closed and they get me whatever I need right away which makes it possible for me to close the files quickly and correctly. Customer service is huge for them and it shows in everything they do. I recommend them all the time to investors that are looking for a great unconventional lender. I hope to work with them for many years to come.

    Capital Fund 1 is made up of professionals who take their jobs seriously and are very good at quickly evaluating, making decisions and following through. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with them on our latest acquisition in Scottsdale. We could not be more pleased to develop a relationship with Capital Fund 1 and would absolutely recommend them to other investors in the Phoenix area.

    I have been with Cap Fund 1 on several occasions and projects since 2016. Most recently, Kevin was right spot on with contacting me as one loan was paid off to see if I had another project to fund. I submitted a refinance and was approved in a very short time line. We closed and recorded without any glitches. Kevin and all the others involved were very helpful and really saved me in an extremely tight situation. I WILL be back as opportunities present and in the meantime I refer Capital Fund1 quite frequently.

  • The team over at Capital Fund 1 were all on the same page and communicating great with myself and title. They were quick to let me know the loan amount they could do. And only needed the essential documentation that matters. I'll definitely be looking fwd to using them again on refinances and trying out on the acquisition side.

    Kevin from capital fund 1 was easy to work with and guided so patiently through my first hard money loan. He was easy to reach and very knowledgable. Glad that I found these guys, without them this deal wouldn't have worked! They also were the best rates I could find after getting in touch with several other lenders in the phoenix area.
