Permanent Loans

Permanent Investment Real Estate Loans

In today’s real estate environment, capital is not the sole determination of success. We combine real estate expertise, flexibility, financial resources, and speed with a commitment to partner with a borrower to achieve the desired outcome.

Many of our transactions in the $500,000 to $3 million range are income property loans historically funded by institutional lenders.

We are not handcuffed by a regulatory environment that hinders traditional lending institutions — we are creative, efficient, and effective for our clients. We are dedicated to keeping it simple and moving ahead quickly to satisfy our client’s needs. Mortgage Equities, Inc. is a reliable, trusted, alternative funding source.

If your new construction project has reached the stage where a permanent loan is needed or purchase a property, or refinance an existing project, we bring our full expertise and creativity to tailor your need to the available financing options. We can save money, uncover hidden costs, and realize maximum loan dollars.
