The Center Street Lending Difference

We are a leading private lender that offers real estate investors asset-based financing on qualified collateral in as little as 24 hours. Our loan programs are designed for investors who purchase properties, repair and/or improve the properties, and resell those properties for a profit. Our competitors are often referred to as hard-money lenders primarily because they are hard to work with. We develop long-term relationships with our clients and a majority are repeat customers due to our professional service and attractive loan terms.

We offer flexible underwriting, attractively priced loans, no hidden fees and next day funding. If you are a real estate investor, we would welcome the opportunity to provide you with a loan for your next investment purchase and to become your preferred lender.
