CASE STUDY DETAILS: New Construction: Houston
This new construction borrower in Houston, Texas, had been working with a local broker, rather than a direct lender. Although many brokers are great to work with, not working directly with a lender can sometimes create a barrier of communication between the borrower and the team who is actually managing the loan and draws, which can be troublesome.
By working directly with i Fund Cities, this borrower had access to the people intimately involved in his loan process, which allowed him to get answers more quickly. That was important, as the borrower had existing debt on their project and they wanted to get financing quickly to keep their pipeline moving at their own pace.
i Fund Cities was able to help this borrower by providing a loan that considered the value-add already done on the property. This included doing the re-platting and getting the approvals to build three townhomes, as opposed to building just one single-family home.
We moved quickly and efficiently for this borrower, closing with the same terms we agreed upon from day one. We funded 100% of construction and we even covered a portion of the closing costs!
