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

  • I did not know i was able to refi while i was in the middle of rehab. the fees were low, but i should have used my own title company, that was not a good idea having them chose for me. not happy with the communication on that end at all. I did have contact with my processor and that was important. thank you for your help. I would like to see how a purchase money loan will work for me on my next flip.

    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

  • 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.

    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.
