FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
(Wilmington, NC) ConnectedInvestors.com recently announced the acquisition of PrivateMoneyLendingGuide.com (PMLG), part of the Affinity Worldwide family of companies, to further solidify their position as the market leader in helping real estate investors find capital.
Connected Investors currently facilitates over $3 billion in funding requests for real estate investors each month while Private Money Lending Guide is the premiere directory of private money lending companies.
Ross Hamilton, CEO of Connected Investors, is optimistic the strategic acquisition will help increase the overall lead flow his company can offer private money, asset-based lenders in their network. “Since 2015, we’ve built an incredible network of asset-based lenders and facilitated effective connections between lenders and real estate investors. This is the next step in advancing the availability of funding for real estate investments nationwide,” noted Hamilton, who launched Connected Investors in 2005.
Money continues to pour into non-traditional real estate lending and currently capital providers have a nearly limitless amount of money to deploy. But as competition continues to increase, lenders are looking for creative ways to get in front of borrowers. Their biggest challenge is connecting with the landlords and flippers in their key markets because relying on referrals or brokers no longer works in the high-tech world.
Eddie Wilson, CEO of Affinity Worldwide, noted, “Bringing together Private Money Lending Guide with Connected Investors is an ideal situation for both companies’ core customer. We are excited to see how this acquisition will better serve private money lending companies while giving investors access to the capital they need. This also allows Affinity to focus on our American Association of Private Lenders and direct our attention to advocacy and industry advancement.”
Affinity Worldwide is a family of companies and 50+ operating divisions spanning a broad spectrum of industries. They are parent company to many real estate investor-related brands including The American Association of Private Lenders, Think Realty, Loan MLS, Radius Renovation Group, RentFax and National Real Estate Insurance Group. The Affinity Worldwide portfolio of brands also spans industries including insurance, publishing, event production, marketing, digital design & development.
