Let EquityMax Cater To Your Specific Lending Needs In Minnesota

No More Middle Men

Our company acts as a single family office, and only deploys its own capital to fund your deals. Less brokers and individuals in between your deals leads to less red tape, less headaches, and a more streamlined path to close and fund your transaction.

Here From Beginning To End

From the moment a team member takes your inquiry, to when you pay off your loan, the EquityMax office remains your single point of contact. We do not outsource servicing to third-party companies, with our team at your service to answer any questions from loan origination to loan payoff.

No Appraisal, No Worries

Don’t let a costly and time-consuming appraisal delay your closing or potentially lower your loan amount. EquityMax never orders appraisals, and instead asks a local broker to conduct a one-page BPO report. Ultimately, this efficient valuation method saves our borrowers time and cost, which leads to quicker and cheaper closings.

Any Region, Area, Or Locale

An investor’s area of expertise ultimately determines where he or she invests. From Minneapolis and St. Paul to Rochester and Duluth, EquityMax funds real estate investment purchases and cash-out refis in urban cities, suburban communities, and rural towns.

EquityMax Insight

Minnesota’s real estate market remains on par with the national averages. Increasing home values, high demand, and low inventory are all playing a role but it hasn’t stopped buyers, sellers, and investors from continuing to be active in the present market. Profitable fix and flip opportunities, while fewer, still exist for investors to take advantage of in the state. Additionally, long-term rentals have shown to be a good play as high demand has enabled landlords to charge impressive rental rates to their tenants.
