I’m now working on my second project with WSF. The loan process for both was fast and easy. My second loan closed exactly four days after I brought them the deal. Looking for another deal now!

Chris JWashington, DC

Walnut Street Finance was referred to me by my Mortgage lender. They are fast, attentive, and have an amazing staff. I used WSF for a recent flip project, Melissa came out to the property to check it out and make sure it would be a good deal. After the renovations, it sold in 4 days with multiple offers for full list price. I am already working with them again on another project

Madeline S.Maryland

The WSF team has been fantastic and hands-on the whole way. They have been easy to work with, and have given me tips on everything from roofing to sod, then helped me find a great local realtor and stager. A great partner.

John G.Vienna, VA

Extremely glad we went with this lender. They are not just a lender but a fabulous resource as well. They have provided a wealth of information on renovations from vendors to agents that are top notch in this market. They are interested in the success of their clients and I have been able to call them or email them with questions. I always get a quick and informative response. We turned down a loan at a lower interest rate and I'm glad we did. No other lender wants to help you like this one.

Karen H.Washington, DC

I have worked with Walnut Street Finance on two deals in DC. Our first property is under contract above asking price, and we're underway with the second. The Walnut Street Finance team has been very helpful and done everything possible to help me succeed.

Andy SAlexandria, VA

Walnut Street has financed both of my last projects. I’m very pleased with the level of service. They were able to quickly fund both deals and have been very responsive. I look forward to working with them on my future deals!!!

Mareb A.Washington, DC

After submitting a few deals to WSF, an immediate relationship began when every one of our clients expressed the professionalism and support they'd received throughout their projects. Feedback such as this has increased our desire to send more business their way.

Choose The Right Private Money Loan For Your Project

Fix and Flip Loans

Fix and flip loans from a hard money lender

Found a property that you want to renovate and “flip” for your next project? A fix and flip from a private money lender is right for you. A lump sum is usually paid at closing to purchase or refinance the property, with the rest of the loan paid as you reach construction milestones.

Acquisition Loans

An acquisition loan from a hard money lender helps you buy a property

Have you identified a real estate investment opportunity for your next project but don’t have enough cash for closing? An acquisition loan helps you buy a property, whether the plan is to resell it, renovate it and flip it, or develop it. Fast money will help you get the deal!

Bridge Loans

Are you cash-strapped between projects, or need funds to snap up another deal before it gets away? Private money bridge loans can “bridge the gap” and help you purchase another property or even a business by leveraging (non-owner occupied) real estate you already own.
