Quick Close and Great Leverage Lead to Profit

The $355,000 loan on this Charlotte home provided 85% loan to cost on the $294,000 purchase price plus the $125,000 rehab budget, while leaving plenty of room for profit. While the appraised after-repair value of $535,000 gave the investor 66% LTARV leverage, the actual fix-and-flip profit was much more—as the home listed for $600,000. As a result, this quick close gave the investor an actual profit of well over $200,000.
