From a lender’s perspective, construction is fraught with risk. That’s why it can be so difficult to get a construction loan — some (maybe many) lenders don’t want to take on the risk associated with that type of project. We certainly understand and appreciate those concerns, but we’ve gotten really good at evaluating and doing SBA 504 construction loans. Here are four reasons why we should be on your short list of small business construction lenders…
Our executive team has experience on both sides of the commercial construction process — both as lender and borrower/developer. Through that we have accumulated practical experience not found in most other lenders. First, this allows us to understand construction projects inside and out. Second, it makes it possible for us to understand what it’s like to be in our clients’ shoes. We know how to deal with contractors, architects, inspectors and all the other moving parts and challenges that are inherent to the construction process. We know how to communicate with our clients about what’s going on and what to expect during the construction phase.
We’re able to provide SBA 504 construction financing nationwide. To date, we’ve closed loans in 40 of the 50 states plus Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia. And we do it from our headquarters in Orlando, Florida. A nationwide footprint without nationwide personnel means we can be lean and quick and competitive.
If you have questions about how we do construction financing, we’d love to get you some answers. Let us know how we can help, whether it’s your project or your clients’.
