The challenges with construction financing relate directly with all these different stages and states of construction. Each one has a different associated level of risk and each can require a different lender.
For even the most basic of new construction projects, the builder or property owner will secure a mortgage to purchase the a subdivided, fully serviced lot that is ready for construction. Based on the paid in equity in the property, a construction loan for building is secured as a second mortgage against the property. Once the project is complete, a third mortgage is secured to payout the first two by a long term take out mortgage.
More complex projects will require additional forms of construction financing at certain stages.
And many times some combination of expected events, poor project costs, and sub optimal project management lead to still other interim funding requirements.
To properly accommodate all these different potential customer requirements, we stay focused on a particular geography and develop relationships with as many relevant construction lenders as we can find in order to service our customer.
The major benefits to our customers are as follows:
- Less time spent scrambling for money
- Less money wasted on financing fees and lender due diligence costs
- Less project disruption
- Faster cash flow problem resolution
- Higher probability of projects being completed on time and in budget.
- Much less stress
