Two businessmen shaking hands after forming a partnership.

The HouseMax Team has some great flippin’ news to share with you, so buckle up! Last month, American Community Investor (ACI), a wholly owned subsidiary of Hunt Companies, Inc., announced a strategic investment move to join forces with our team and we couldn’t be more thrilled for what the future holds. 

You might be wondering, “why the flip should I care?” But here’s the thing, if you are in the real estate industry or in the house-flipping business, this partnership means more opportunities for everyone involved–especially potential borrowers and investors.

Let’s Meet The Key Players

First things first, let’s talk a little bit more about our new partners. As we mentioned, ACI is a subsidiary of Hunt Companies, but we will move on to Hunt in just a minute. 

American Community Investors (ACI) is a holding company that invests in operating platforms focused on origination, lending, and investment management services that aim to improve local communities. They are also comprised of Cazenovia Creek Investment Management, a tax lien buyer, manager, and servicer, and Caz Creek Lending, an asset-based lender to commercial investors. Here is what Scott Campbell, CEO of American Community Investor had to say about the partnership, “we are pleased to make this investment into HouseMax Funding.  HouseMax is a top-tier origination platform with a proven management team.” 

Next up, let’s talk about Hunt Companies, who are also based right here in Texas. Hunt is a diversified, family-owned holding company that invests in operating businesses, real estate assets, and infrastructure assets. But if you think this is their first rodeo, think again. 

Since its founding in 1947, Hunt’s size and scope have grown substantially while gaining considerable expertise across multiple real asset sectors. Hunt’s reputation is built on integrity and performance. Hunt is committed to a culture of transparency for employees, clients, investors, and the communities it serves. Hunt and its affiliates employ more than 4,000 people across the United States and Europe.

And that just leaves us…The HouseMax Funding team! We are one of the fastest-growing hard money lenders, focusing on residential and multifamily business purpose real estate lending, as well as new construction loans for small- and medium-sized builders in major market areas. Our team has over 25 years of lending experience and over 50 years of collective real estate sales and investing.

What This Means For You

So, what does the new partnership mean for you? If you have a working relationship with us, you don’t have to worry about any significant changes. Borrowers will still go through the same application and loan process as before for all of our types of loans. We want to maintain the current relationships we have, while building new and lasting ones as well. 

The Housemax/Hunt partnership is the catalyst we sought to continue to grow this company to one that will have a significant impact on the industry.
