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. Use the same software as the at no-cost.

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

    5 star review  Capital Fund 1 has always been great to work with. I've been working with them on deal for about a year and a half and it's always been a quick and easy process. Much better than many of their competitors - they don't require appraisals nor charge a bunch of exorbitant fees. I have worked with them in a broker capacity as well as have sent them deals of my own. Always easy to reach people on their team and always a pleasure to work with.

    5 star review  Capital Fund 1 should every single real estate invostor's partner. I have done several fix and flip deals with Kevin at this awesome company and it's very friendly personnel. Couldn't be more satisfied. Their terms are way better than other competitors and their closing process is super prompt which is within one week to 10 days from start to closing. Just when I thought that their service is at it's best they have exceeded my expectations and actually came to my rescue at the last deal just a week ago. In January I was I'll advised with comps from a realtor about a property in Surprise and the realtor suggested a sale price that was way above the market. I didn't have any buyers for 2 plus months and I was hurting financially because another hard money lender was financing that property at very high rate. I leased the property and tried to put a conventional refinance loan but after over 400 pages of loan documents and unrealistic demands like showing funds for 12 months in advance and other grueling requirements the middle of June 2019 came and still didn't have confirmation to close. I grew frustrated and picked the phone talked to Kevin at Capital Fund 1 and told him the situation. He got with his underwriters and then within 5 minutes he gave me great long terms for a lease over 3 years which I immediately accepted. They were able to close the new loan in only four amazing short days. Thanks Kevin and Capital Fund 1 you have made me a partner for life and so should every investor. George Tohme

    5 star review  I had a great project idea and needed hard money to get started. I had the good fortune to be referred to Noah Brocius at Capital Fund 1 ! Was a newbie but had an opportunity to describe my project. I was asked to submit my a idea with a flood plan ( s/family to a duplex ) a cost study , a simple loan application , and financial needs such as price, down payment and rent expectations.And within 24 I was approved and closed in 3 days! During the 16 months of the loan life I was treated like a million dollar client ! The whole gang was available for Q&A and always professional! Hope to do it again soon ! Thanks guys. JAS
