House Flipping Loans & The Real Estate Investor

Most real estate investors want to use other people’s money (OPM). Why use their own, when they can use OPM to put into deals? Why risk your own money, when you can push it onto someone else? Find real estate investors willing to lend money, especially to flippers. Today, Clint Coons of Anderson Business Advisors talks about lending with Paul Jackson and Rick Morgan of Residential Capital Partners.   


  • Expertise, knowledge, and relationships with investors and banks allowed Rick and Paul to offer a lending service to make profits vs. doing the buying and flipping themselves
  • Accounting is the language of business; dollars are going out and coming in
  • Residential Capital Partners: Originated in 2009, during the downturn when banks sold bad assets and took in Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) money
  • We Buy Ugly Houses: HomeVestors attract new franchisees and grow its business; Rick and Paul use franchise to underwrite debt acquisition of single-family distressed paper
  • Millenials want to rent, instead of buy a place
  • Problems for Property Flippers: Hard money lender puts deal together; shock sets in when money for rehab isn’t available
  • Residential Capital Partners offer consistent delivery, clear communication, description of how money is priced and structured, and do what’s promised
  • Keeping the cash in borrower’s pocket is key to staying healthy in fix-and-flip business
  • Residential Capital Partners primarily do cosmetic types of rehab loans
  • Residential Capital Partners’ Loan Process: Citizens profit, protect, and act as collateral
  • Why do flippers fail? First rule of business: Whatever happens, live to fight another day
