CoreVest is filling a void in the capital markets for budding investors. That is new investors growing portfolios of single-family homes or small multifamily complexes. This class of investors is often caught in a gap between residential lending and commercial lending. CoreVest has stepped up to serve this segment of the market, and it has found ample opportunities. We sat down with CoreVest’s CEO Beth O’Brien to talk about the firm’s lending strategy and the demand from new investors for capital. Tell me about your lending strategy and the niche market that you serve.

Beth O’Brien: We focus exclusively on residential real estate investors, an underserved market that has struggled historically to find quality debt capital to grow their businesses. We were formed to fill that gap – by providing much needed financing to qualified investors. Our strategy has been to continually evolve and to custom tailor our loan products to serve investors’ goals, even as they emerge. This understanding and responsiveness stems from our own experience participating as investors in the residential real estate market prior to our launch. We saw that there was little to no debt capital available in this niche, especially to the smaller and mid-sized residential real estate investors. As a result, we launched CoreVest and now finance everything from a single fix and flip asset to large pools of long-term rental loans on single-family and multifamily investment property.
