When Leka, a seasoned real estate investor, found an off-market multi-family in Auburn to purchase as a buy and hold, she came to Flynn Family Lending for creative financing solutions to keep more cash in her pocket. We were able to use her single family rental in Tacoma and her triplex in Seattle to cross-collateralize a loan in 2nd position behind her conventional mortgages. Our loan provided her with enough funds for down payment assistance and rehab costs on the Auburn purchase. She was able to close quickly and preserve her cash position by using the equity in her existing rental portfolio without the hassles of a third party appraisal or credit and income verification.
For the LandlordKhanh, an experienced investor in the local real estate community needed a creative way to fund the purchase of a hotel located in historic downtown Puyallup that would allow her to put minimum cash down, close quickly, and avoid the delay in getting a third-party appraisal. Originally, she planned to finance the deal with a conventional lender and use Flynn Family Lending to gap fund the deal; however, we were able to help her facilitate seller financing behind our first lien loan which further reduced cash required to close, avoided a timely third party appraisal, and expedited the time to close.
Corrine, a military engineer and experienced real estate investor found a great buy and hold opportunity in the West End neighborhood of Tacoma. She came to Flynn Family Lending after her original lender shut it’s doors due to COVID. She needed someone to help fund her deal very quickly and to provide her with 75% of the purchase price, allowing her to keep some additional cash in reserve. We were able to use a rental property of Corrine’s located in the North End neighborhood of Tacoma to cross-collateralize a loan in first position on the purchase property and second position on the rental / investment property behind her existing conventional mortgage. By using the additional collateral, we were able to increase the equity buffer and lower the LTV so she didn’t have to use any additional cash reserves to close the deal.
Nghi and his partner Andrew needed financing on three wholesale properties located in Texas that all included large assignment fees. They were having difficulty obtaining financing from other lenders due to it being the early stages of COVID-19, as many lenders were pulling back and restricting their lending. In addition, around this same time, many lenders had stopped approving loans with large assignment fees. Not having a limit on assignment fees, Flynn Family Lending was able to step in and cross-collateralize two of the whole sale properties with Nghi’s investment property in Seattle and cross collateralize the third wholesale property with one of Andrew’s investment properties in Tacoma – both of these encumbered in second position. Flynn Family Lending came through in a pinch and helped Nghi and Andrew close in 6 business days after their original lender pulled out of the deal due to Covid. In the end, we saved the borrowers their earnest money and reputation as investors by being able to close quickly and by not being hampered by conventional lending guidelines around assignment fees.

As a general rule of thumb, No. Most auction purchases will require a cashier’s check.
Cross collateralization refers to a strategy where a borrower uses an existing property (or two) they own as additional collateral to secure the loan; whether a rental, flip project near completion, primary residence, or other asset class. The benefits of doing this are to:
- Reduce out of pocket cash to close
- Increase financing capabilities with more collateral
- Support rate and term refinance rather than costly cash-out refinance through higher leverage
We currently lend in WA state only; however, we are exploring lending in states where some of our investors are comfortable lending in and have market experience. We are currently exploring Texas, Arizona, and Colorado. If you have other markets that you would be willing to lend in, please let us know
Our typical interest rates range between 9% up to 12%+ depending on property type, LTV, lien position, and overall risk.
Yes, if the borrower’s properties being encumbered are vested in the name of the SDIRA, we can vest the loan in the SDIRA as well.
Flynn Family Lending requires 30% down on purchases; however, if a borrower can’t fund 30% and has additional investment properties to offer up as collateral, we can often get to the 70% LTV threshold by cross collateralizing the loan or using equity in an additional property.

No credit pulls, income verification or appraisals needed with us.
