Upright Introduces Rental Loans.
Competitive loans pair with state-of-the-art software
The move is a response to customer demand and represents a further expansion of the firm’s service offering and commitment to enabling wealth creation for residential real estate investors. Upright’s VP of Revenue, Brendan Bennett, says: “Many customers at first come to us for our fix and flip loans, but if they want to turn those properties into long-term rentals instead of sell them on, we have previously had to refer them elsewhere. There was a piece of the puzzle missing. Not anymore. By introducing DSCR Rental Loans, we are better able to serve the needs of more customers, throughout their real estate investment journey.”
Upright, formerly known as Fund That Flip, was founded with the mission of providing private real estate developers access to funding for their rehab and new construction projects, and passive investors to enjoy the returns delivered by investing in residential real estate. The platform is now expanding to provide a comprehensive suite of services for active and passive investors alike, removing friction at every stage of the process, from analyzing investment properties, financing, and construction management to disposition.
Software No Substitute for Service
The Upright team prides itself on the relationships it builds with each of its active investors. Bennett says: “While the DSCR Rental Loans and platform is a powerful combination, real estate is a people business, and we take that very seriously.
“We talk personally with every developer we work with, often in person. We walk through nearly every property. We want to know how we can help them scale and talk about not just the current deal, but the next one, and the next.
“Anyone who has benefited from one of our hard money loans already understands our dedication to efficiency and extraordinary customer experience; that’s what we’re bringing with our DSCR product, too.”
