Nectar helped us secure over $1 million in working capital. This enabled us to grow proactively instead of waiting until we saved up enough cash. I was so impressed with the Nectar team’s speed and flexibility, and I highly recommend them to any real estate investor looking to grow! - Harrison Y, Short Term Rental Owner-Operator

Secure a Bank Line of Credit to Keep Expanding
Even the most successful short-term rental operators will often struggle to secure capital from institutional lenders, due to the unique cash flow characteristics and business model of this type of real estate business.
This creates an opportunity for Nectar to work in tandem with traditional funding sources, providing the advance entrepreneurs need to secure a line of credit or make a down payment on an additional property.
In this instance, the entrepreneur needed an extra $1 million on their balance sheet in order to secure favorable terms on capital from a bank.
Conservative Underwriting to Minimize Investor Risk
Due to current economic conditions, we took a fairly conservative approach to underwriting. We ensured the initial coverage ratio met our requirements using only NOI from stabilized properties already in operation. When adding in conservative projections on new properties, the coverage ratio more than doubled.
We also structured the deal to have a shorter term length, which will provide attractive risk adjusted returns.
