A KCK startup opened a funding pipeline with its latest offering that exceeded $860 million in its first seven months of operation.
MultifamilyDebt.com — a multifamily lending marketplace fueled by Kansas City, Kansas-based LendingStandard — announced the achievement Monday, signaling rapid growth in the midst of a record-setting era for real estate.
“Providing quality loans and fast documentation with personal service is rare for properties under $5 million and investors are looking for better solutions,” Andy Kallenbach, CEO of both MultifamilyDebt and LendingStandard, explained in a release.
“Our goal is to cut through the inefficiency and frustration that multifamily borrowers have experienced for far too long,” added Craig Hughey, vice president of product management.
The fast-growing company has so-far focused its efforts on small balance loans, Kallenbach said, noting the company offers loan options across the buyer spectrum and simplifies the loan application process.
“It has been surprising to see the variety of projects from $40 million new construction to $100 million bridge loans,” he said. “I believe it is a testament to our focus in connecting multifamily with the right lender and not blasting a deal out to see what sticks.”
The MultifamilyDebt platform uses an online profile to match borrowers with lending options pulled from a sourced network of trusted lenders.
“Its proprietary, automated underwriting engine screens, sizes, and closes deals quickly with little human interaction,” the company said in description of its platform, which is backed by funding from Overland Park-based Flyover Capital.
“Multifamilydebt.com completes the lending cycle, streamlining deals from start to close. Applicants are able to input data points on their property or portfolio and receive custom offers from lending partners.”
