Real Estate Breakdown of Alabama

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!

I purchased a property “cash” last year in Montgomery, and need some additional funds. Can EquityMax Finance this transaction?

EquityMax not only lends to borrowers to purchase real estate, but often provides “cash out” refi loans to borrowers who may need extra capital to complete a project.

What separates the Alabama market from other states?

From what we have seen and experienced as lenders, Alabama’s price points for real estate offers a relatively low barrier for entry for new and experienced investors to purchase properties.

Is Alabama a good condo market?

We find that other states have optimal markets for investing in condos, particularly states with more seasonal real estate (i.e. Florida).  That doesn’t mean that markets catering to college students (i.e. Tuscaloosa) may be prime opportunities to rent condos as student housing.

Where in Alabama does EquityMax lend?

EquityMax lends on real estate throughout the state of Alabama. We are not geographically limited as to where we will finance in the state.

Does EquityMax lend in rural or agricultural areas in Alabama?

EquityMax will lend in urban, suburban, rural, and agricultural areas of the state.
