For us, a Billion dollars in closed loans signifies the thousands of local real estate investors we were able to support along with the best-in-class originations, processing, servicing, and back-office service that kept at least half of them coming back as repeat borrowers scaling their business

Asset Based Lending is proud to announce $1 Billion in loan originations since the company’s inception in 2010. This follows a record-breaking month of October that saw $38.7 Million funded across bridge and term rental loans, with total fundings year-to-date in excess of $275,000,000.

“For us, a Billion dollars in closed loans signifies the thousands of local real estate investors we were able to support along with the best-in-class originations, processing, servicing, and back-office service that kept at least half of them coming back as repeat borrowers scaling their business over time,” said Eric Krattenstein, a Partner at ABL. “We’ve evolved as a company. The next Billion will come quicker, but never at the expense of the core values we’ve built our reputation on: speed, flexibility, transparency, and professionalism in private lending.”

ABL kickstarted 2021 by adding a long-term rental loan product to their suite of direct lending options. This new product compliments BRRRR investors that use ABL’s fast bridge financing for purchase and construction but are looking to hold the property as part of an income producing portfolio instead of flipping. The one-stop-shop approach allows borrowers to continue working with the ABL team they’ve come to rely on regardless of their exit strategy or business model. Currently, these rental loans are offered for 1-9 unit properties with interest rates start as low as 4%. The so-called “no doc” loans are offered with a variety of options including 30-year amortizing, adjustable, and interest-only terms with minimal property seasoning requirements.

This year also saw the return of ABL’s Zero-Point Program for short-term fix and flips, new construction, and cash out refinances. The zero-point option was briefly suspended during the pandemic, but the company’s unique capital structure and consistent growth has allowed the return of this borrower favorite. ABL’s zero-point loans have no pre-payment penalties or exit fees, making them the only true zero-point hard money loan available to real estate investors.

In addition to product development, the company expanded into new adjacent territories such as New Hampshire, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina where investors where immediately attracted to ABL’s transparent process and competitive products. Entering these new states allowed Asset Based Lending to round out its East Coast foothold, cementing the lender as one of the premier regional private lenders in the country.

“When Paul Ullman and I started this business in December 2010, we never imagined that we would exceed 1 billion in loan volume,” said Daniel Leyden, one of ABL’s Founding Partners. “We’ve grown a lot as a company over the last decade, and very much look forward to the next chapter in the firm’s evolution.”

2021 saw the promotion of several staff into partnership and executive-level roles along with several business-critical new hires, setting the foundation needed for the company to effectively scale. Shifting sights to 2022, ABL will ramp up efforts to recruit top talent while executing an aggressive growth strategy aimed at transitioning from the region’s top private lender to one of the nation’s top private lenders. This planned expansion will allow ABL to further diversify its product mix, expand its geographic reach, and continue leading the market with creative and aggressive financing options.
