What’s New with Wildcat
We tracked down Wildcat’s Chief Lending Officer Kevin Shipman to find out the latest on this lender.
Kevin says the lender’s recent expansion from Texas to Tennessee has been a huge hit, with new deals being funded there every week.
Kevin and his team’s outlook for the market remains very bullish, especially for properties at $300k and below. They see plenty of buyers for deals, and great performance on the loans they’ve been making.
What you might not know about Wildcat is that in addition to financing up to 90% of your house flipping projects, they do rental property loans, and they’ll finance 1-4 unit properties, including condos.
While many of their investors are experienced, Kevin says, “we love working with newbies.” It’s always exciting to help someone new get into the game and off the ground. So, if you’ve had trouble meeting the experience requirements at other lenders, consider trying these guys out.
Improving the lending experience and helping investors is something Kevin has been passionate about since school. He always liked numbers and was good at math. After getting his finance degree he started working at Wells Fargo and quickly moved up to management before striking out at the Senior Vice President of a community bank. Then being driven to create even more efficiency and better service for investors, he joined Wildcat.
When we say Wildcat is fast, we mean really fast, and it is one of the advantages that is helping them scoop up more market share. Kevin says they can close deals in as little as 24 to 48 hours. In fact, when another lender recently turned down a house flipper’s loan in the middle of a deal, Kevin’s team stepped in and got the file from start to closing in a ridiculously fast four and a half hours.
