Investor Login

We originate, process, fund, and service all of our loans. We are a full-service, private lending company facilitating bridge loans, acquisition loans and construction financing. Our clients are builders, real estate entrepreneurs, investors and wholesalers in need of efficient financing to complete a transaction.

While we primarily lend in the west coast, mountain west, and southeast markets, we partner with borrowers and developers across the country to provide funding in a quick and responsive manner. We pride ourselves on efficiency, transparency and for always honoring our commitments.

Why Partner With Sundance Bay Debt Strategies?

Limited Credit Availability

Conventional banks & other lending sources remain under fiscal and regulatory pressure. Sundance Bay Debt Strategies (SDP) can cut through the red tape and give you a decision within 24-48 hours. We often can close a loan within one week after origination.

Flexible Terms

Traditional bridge/hard money lenders are localized, unstructured and carry exorbitant pricing and terms; very few institutional bridge/private lending funds exist. We evaluate each project based on its own merits. We try to find pricing that is appropriate given the underlying risk, but we strive to find terms that will still put our borrowers in a position to succeed.

Partners You Can Rely On

We are former/current developers who understand what it takes to develop and complete projects. SDP draws on our experience to set up your project for success. We expect every transaction to result in a “win-win” outcome. As a direct lender with a large amount of capital, you can rely on us to never miss a funding date. To date, we have funded hundreds of loans and have never missed a funding date. We step in when other lenders are unable to perform.

Our team strives to complete due diligence within 1-4 weeks of receiving the loan application so we can get projects funded in a timely manner.
