AFS is a direct commercial lender who helps borrowers who are unable to qualify for bank financing due to being self-employed, have low credit scores, need to pay off tax liens, etc. A borrower who can’t qualify for a bank loan is the perfect AFS customer because we are more flexible. Though AFS rates are 3% or more above typical Bank rates, we are well below “hard money” rates. When a borrower needs a faster closing than what a bank can offer, AFS can close their loan within two to four weeks without the fees that a hard money lender will charge.
