Fix and Flip Loan – Winchester, VA

This West Virginia-based investor came to Lima One in 2018 with a couple of flips under his belt. He funded his first two flips with private cash as he was getting started but wanted to find a better way to maximize his profits with secure funding.

Real estate investing and flipping houses started as a side hustle for this investor, but over the past three years, Lima One has helped him turn a side hustle into a successful business. In three years’ time, this investor has added more than 60 units to his portfolio and that number is continuing to climb.

“With my two previous flips, I was just looking for a better way, and that’s when I ran into Lima One. The low money down, the ease of the application, figuring out the budgeting system, it’s just easy. Lima One is just hard to beat.”
