EquityMax Insight

In this particular case, our borrower (a first-time EquityMax client) had been working as a probate lead for months. Thankfully, over this time period, home values in Alabama had increased 9.4%. It was a great deal that required only minor touch up and no extensive renovation. Hence, when EquityMax closed this deal, the borrower quickly expedited his work on the property and sold the home to an end-user in 3 months. Not bad for 90 days’ work!
