Let EquityMax Cater To Your Specific Lending Needs In Georgia

Any Metro Area In Georgia

While actively financing in larger metro counties such as Fulton, Gwinnett, Cobb, and DeKalb, EquityMax also offers hard money in smaller suburban cities and towns throughout Georgia. Let us offer a private funding option that works for you, no matter where you invest.

Experience And Expertise

Our company has been a family owned-and-operated business since 1990, including fully solvent throughout all market downturns of the last 30 years. Our ability to maintain profitable operations for 3 decades speaks to our excellent investment know-how and decision making skills.

Borrow From The Bank

We do not have investors, or carry any outside credit facilities. When you are financed by EquityMax, the funds are coming from our personal funds. Cut out the middleman, work directly with the owners, and close your deal within 48 hours of title and lien search receipt.

Easy Qualifying, Quick Closings

EquityMax does not require a minimum credit score, or have a formal application process. We do not order appraisals or surveys, and do not ask for bank statements, tax returns, or other financial information. Fewer documents means less underwriting “red tape” and a faster funding timeline for your transaction.

EquityMax Insight

Given the initial purchase price, a rehab of merely $45K on a property with an ARV of over $300K is quite manageable. The borrower was able to secure acquisition financing from EquityMax, and handled the rehab with ease. After staging the home and marketing it for sale, the home went pending in 2 short weeks. The state’s healthy economy, growing population, quality life, and affordability are positive signals that real estate investors can be profitable in any part of Georgia.
