Latest Success Story

A new investor had initially purchased a primary residence years back, but now was living in a different home, and renting her previous residence out.  Between renting it out and when the borrower inquired about a loan, the market price for her investment property skyrocketed.  Once that tenant no longer occupied the unit, the borrower was looking to pull cash out of her now-rental property to make some improvements and then ultimately sell the property.

Driving Factors for New York Real Estate Market

  • Popularization of Urban Suburbs

    Millennials are moving at a high rate to metropolitan suburban areas like Westchester and even across Long Island, where new neighborhoods are emerging that combine the best attributes of urban and suburban lifestyles. As a result, they make highly profitable investment opportunities for those in real estate.

  • Rental Prices

    Vacancy rates are decreasing as rental housing has increased in demand, especially during the summer months. Moreover, new rental units have been appearing rapidly throughout the state and the new boost in supply has forced landlords to price their properties more competitively and offer better concessions.

  • Strong Home Buyer Activity

    Like much of the country, real estate is in high demand across New York as homebuyers are breaking previous records. This generally makes New York state a more stable investment market.

EquityMax Insight

New York state is known around the world for its real estate. With New York City in the center and growing areas like Buffalo, Albany, and Rochester scattered throughout, there are plenty of opportunities for investors to take advantage of. This particular investor has purchased a property in previously distressed condition and now needed to perform repairs and sell it.  EquityMax saw that there was  a niche opportunity in this small town for the borrower to sell her previously underpriced property for a massive profit.  We subsequently provided easy financing to ensure her dream became a reality.

Frequently Asked Questions

What types of real estate property does EquityMax lend on?

EquityMax lends on any form of residential property, including single family homes, 1-4 multi-unit properties, condominiums & townhomes, and even small apartment complexes (20 units or less).  We also lend on commercial property and industrial warehouses.

Once I am prequalified, how quickly can I obtain a Proof of Funds letter?

EquityMax can send a borrower a Proof of Funds within 5 minutes of receipt of an acceptable, three-score credit report.  If a borrower does not have a recent report, he/she can request that Equitymax pull it.  For instructions, please click here.

Can EquityMax finance multiple properties simultaneously for borrowers?

Yes. EquityMax has multiple borrowers with several active loans in our portfolio.

Do I need to hold properties in a business entity?

EquityMax does not require our borrowers to be a Corporation of LLC.  We can originate loans to individuals, LLCs, Corporations, Land Trusts, and Self-Directed IRAs.

Does EquityMax lend outside of the great metro areas of New York?

Certainly the greater New York City area is the most populous region in perhaps the whole country, but that doesn’t mean EquityMax will not lend in Upstate New York, even closer to the Canadian border (i.e. Buffalo) and other less metro areas such as Ithaca and Syracuse.

Does EquityMax Lend In Rural Or Agricultural Areas In New York?

EquityMax will lend in urban, suburban, rural, and agricultural areas of the state. While we specialize in residential properties, EquityMax also lends on vacant land, modular homes, and anything that an investor can turn for a profit!

How will the New York market recover from a potential downturn?

Real estate markets are always cyclical, and in the times of a distressed market is the time to load up on underpriced assets. Low prices don’t last forever, and a prolific market is bound to fall at some point. EquityMax, in part attests to the fact, that being a successful real estate investor has a lot to do with timing as well.

Do Condos have to be warrantable for EquityMax to finance them?

EquityMax can lend on non-warrantable condos without issue.  However, EquityMax regrettably does not lend on CO-OPs because title is compartmentalized and not ultimately owned wholly by the borrower/buyer.
