About Hurst Lending

Founded in 2006 by Jay Hurst and Scott Bialek, Hurst Lending is still managed by Jay, Scott and their families. At Hurst Lending, we are re-inventing the home loan process with a suite of Industry-leading programs that solve typical home buying and selling problems.  

Have you ever experienced the frustration of trying to buy before you sell; Losing your dream home in a bidding war; Trying to get a No-Seasoning Cash-out loan; Being unable to obtain a mortgage because your new or old house needs modest repairs; or simply because you prefer using our funds to close quickly without having to liquidate other investments?  Our Industry-leading suite of short-term loans solves these issues.  We also offer a suite of real estate investor loan products and a full suite of conventional, VA, FHA, construction and traditional home loans.

If there is a situation that is creating a barrier for you to get a home loan or other logistical hurdles, we can often find a solution. Sometimes the solution is a short-term loan – other times it is another form of specialty loan.

Real Estate Investing Heritage 

Our founders started out as residential real estate investors and they learned how to leverage their borrowing capacity to build a high quality real estate portfolio over time.  Along the way they built Hurst Lending and created a deep suite of loan products to address needs they had as real estate investors.  Our loan products help investors: (1) grow their portfolios, (2) access their equity, and (3) acquire properties without high cost hard money loans.

We also love to work with new investors (who have solid w-2 jobs) to help them get started investing in real estate.  People with w-2 jobs are able to access low cost long term fixed rate financing and this is the best way to grow your portfolio over time.  If you are interested in growing your portfolio or getting started investing in Real Estate, simply fill out the contact us form above.
