Market Opportunity

Strong Demand for Real Estate Investments Creates a Unique Opportunity

Real estate investment is a capital-intensive business that relies heavily on debt capital to acquire, develop, improve, construct, renovate and maintain properties. We believe that the demand for real estate investments that are within our lending range of $500,000 to $25,000,000 to acquire, renovate, improve residential real estate on the east coast of the United States, presents a compelling opportunity to generate attractive returns for an established, well-financed, non-bank lender such as Sachem Capital.

Competitive advantage

We have competed successfully in the real estate investment market notwithstanding the fact that many traditional lenders, such as banks and other institutional lenders, also service this market.  We believe our primary competitive advantage is our ability to approve and fund loans quickly while being efficient.  We believe we are well positioned to capitalize and profit from the supply-demand imbalance for financing existing in our industry.

Originating attractively priced loans with strong credit fundamentals

We believe there is a significant market opportunity for a well-capitalized “hard money” real estate finance company to originate attractively priced loans with strong asset based fundamentals. We operate along the east coast with a heavy presence in the North East but have spread out nation wide where real estate values in many neighborhoods are either stable or increasing and substandard properties are being improved, rehabilitated and renovated. We believe there are many opportunities for a “hard money” lender providing capital for these types of transactions to developers. We further believe that our flexibility to structure loans to suit the particular needs of our borrower and our ability to close quickly make us an attractive alternative to banks and other large institutional lenders for small real estate developers and investors.
