Finance Your Real Estate Acquisition
Great Short-Term Acquisition Loans for Real Estate Investors
A real estate acquisition loan is financing for the purchase, or acquisition, of property. The targeted property may be intended for resale by a wholesaler, for a fix and flip project, or for a condominium conversion, but as long as the loan is earmarked for the purchase only, it is considered to be an acquisition loan.
Typically, acquisition loans are a good fit for those who have identified a solid real estate investment opportunity but do not have access to sufficient capital by the time of closing. As you know, in real estate investing, time is of the essence; therefore one of the many benefits of a real estate acquisition loan is that it can help you secure the purchase of the property quickly.
A real estate acquisition loan is based solely on the value of the property. It does not take into consideration any of the renovations or repairs that need to be done before resale.
However, real estate lenders may bundle other types of loans (e.g., renovation loan, construction loan) with an acquisition loan to give the borrower more flexibility with the project.

“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. No other lender wants to help you like this one. Use them.”
"Walnut Street Finance has been a great partner to work with for my real estate investments. I’ve worked with Walnut Street on multiple projects and they’ve given me solid advice with questions on permits and inspections as well as quality referrals for contractors."
“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, they are great to loyal clients."
“When no one else wanted to take this adventure with us, Walnut was there, as excited as we were about our project. They went above and beyond to help us out and we will forever be grateful for their confidence in us.”
