Direct Lender for Residential Real Estate Investors

Peak specializes in fast funding for residential investment properties (1-4 units) in 25 states – purchase, refinance, cash out, rehab, flip, ground-up construction and 30-year rental loans. While most lenders shy away from vacation homes and long-term rentals, they are very attractive to us. We lend to a variety of entity types, including self-directed IRA’s, solo 401k’s and foreign nationals. Peak is very well capitalized and lend off our own balance sheet. We don’t mind properties with values under $50K, so long as we approve the location.

Please note: we do not offer loans for land development or owner-occupied homes.

We are not a “MEGA LENDER” hustling you like cattle through the chute. We’ve built our business One Loan at A Time. Every Borrower is unique and important at Peak.

Peak Asset Lending is owned and operated by the Sauer Family, a farm family with roots back to Western Kansas. They purchased their first rental property in 1999. With a well-rounded education and a growing rental portfolio, the Sauer Family began business’s supporting other real estate investors in the early 2000’s. These included a Construction Company, a Maintenance Company, and a Property Management Company.

Cresting at over 200 rentals in 2004, the Sauer Family decided to consolidate and focus on the one item that every transaction involved – Money. This shift in focus led to the beginning of their first lending company. Through the market collapse in 2008, the Sauer Family persevered and started Peak Asset Lending to provide financing to Foreign Investors and other “unbankable” real estate investors. Over the past decade, Peak established itself as one of the premier, non-bank, asset-based lenders in the country.
