Private and Hard Money for Land loans , Raw land and development

Our land loan review and funding can be used for the following :



Raw land loans are designed to be a bridge:

Development for construction of residential lots , commercial lots and site preparation

Infrastructure - roads - other


Entitlements for zoning


Underwriting Raw Law Land :

Typical funds occur at 50 - 70 % of  “as is value” if existing appraisals, consider the
   Marketing exposure time noted. Less than 12 months is key.

Loans may be funded "up" for development as improvements will increase the value


Some questions:

Basic - what will it cost to develop?

What is the source of capital for development and entitlements?

What is intended use of land?

What is access?

what is the general area?

What is topo and how will it affect engineering and grading


For purchase, typically 65% of cost at most
