LM Funding Announces More Contracts with New Associations
TAMPA, FL / ACCESSWIRE / December 17, 2020 / LM Funding America, Inc. (NASDAQ:LMFA) ("LM Funding" or "LMFA"), a technology-based specialty finance company, today announced entering into new contracts with four condominium associations with over 2,885 combined residences to provide funding for potential budget shortfalls resulting from the pandemic driven economic downturn. This brings the Company's total doors under contract with active accounts to approximately 36,000 representing an increase of approximately 11,000 doors in 2020.
"We believe the referral program we implemented in August (https://lmfunding.com/referralprogram/) has driven most of our recent account acquisitions", said LMFA's Chief Executive Officer Bruce M. Rodgers. "Paying referral fees is an efficient way for us to acquire business and helps to solidify our lines of communication with our funded communities as we board and collect accounts." Rodgers said.
Rodgers continued to say, "Overall, our business growth from new account acquisitions continues to benefit from high unemployment rates caused by the pandemic. As the effects of government stimulus spending wear off, we expect to contract with more associations as well as purchase more accounts from associations currently under contract."
According to data from Community Association Institute (www.caionline.org) over 9.6 million people live in over 47,900 Florida condominium or homeowners associations. These community associations are not for profit corporations governed by board of directors elected by property owners. The community associations pay for maintenance of common amenities with assessments collected from owners.
