Land

Land falls into two categories – held for the long term for future development and purchased for immediate development.

Standard financing

Standard financing offers a term of five years or more, a fixed interest rate and is typically closed to prepayment for the term’s duration.

Short-term (bridge) financing

Bridge financing addresses a borrower’s short-term needs, usually three months to three years.
