Bank owned, or REO properties, can yield nice profit margins for investors working in a hot seller’s market, such as the one we’re experiencing now on Long Island. This Gauntlet Funding borrower had plenty of experience with REOs, and luckily, the property required a limited renovation. It was purchased for $375K and renovated for $60K, and sold this past July for $550K.

Profitability is always an issue when the cost to bring a property to market is high. A case in point is a large two-family in the Bronx that needed a gut renovation. With a $129K reno budget, the deal only worked because the borrower was able pick up the property at a significant discount. Purchased with a Gauntlet Funding loan that covered his renovation, the borrower fixed the property with a modern design that appealed to buyers. He recently sold it for $50K over the appraised value.

Real Estate investment opportunities can still be found within NYC, and our smart borrower recognized it in this two-family in the Bronx.

Historic homes in charming suburban settings are often neglected and sometimes even torn down by municipalities. But real estate investors know there’s a market for renovated 100-year-old properties. The potential of this property was immediately apparent to our borrower. Purchased with a hard money loan of $425K, and with a renovation budget of $74,000, the result is a pretty house with reclaimed charm. And it made a nice profit for our borrower too when it sold for $645,000.


Renovating an investment property can quickly deplete an investor’s cash flow. Refinancing is often the answer to ensuring that the full value of the property is realized when it is sold. This smart borrower went that route, financing his repairs with a hard money loan, enabling him to sell for nearly double his purchase price.
