Non-Recourse Construction Loans, Lending, Investing, Fundings & Financings...

Prior to the advent of Internet-based programs, non-recourse construction loans were - by and large - the province of the non-recourse construction loans, investments, lending, financing federal government that provided tax-exempt bond financing and mortgage loan insurance for certain types of commercial income-producing properties and lines of business.  Today, non-recourse construction loans can be obtained by increasing the amount of at-risk equity contributions to the transaction - the sufficiency of which provides enough financial incentive for a lender to provide non-recourse construction financing and you make this work by having Rainmaker perform an underwriting review of your proposal and help you with our participating network of brokers to place your financing or create a syndicate to provide the necessary capital for your development project.

Increasing the equity capitalization is just one of the solutions for obtaining non-recourse construction loans.  In fact, there are a basket of transaction terms that can be modified to induce a lender to make the construction loan, including:

Increases in the interest rate the notes bear; and

Increases in the origination and placement fees/points on the note; and

Posting additional collateral (not a smart option, but it is one that works); and

Creating a condominium ownership plan for a portion of the property and immediately applying the sales proceeds against the outstanding indebtedness; and

Creating a tenants-in-common fractional real estate ownership interest syndication to provide near-term equity contributions that reduce the loan (per the heading of this page); and

Creating a direct public offering for issuers seeking to raise less than $20 million in financing pursuant to the new rule change by the SEC pursuant to the Jobs Act.

Ultimately, these items are used in combination to make the transaction attractive to the lender.  In many cases, the reduction in the origination fees (created by the reduction in the origination amount of the loan) can be waived and the points increased the same dollar amount as if the higher loan-to-cost ratio had been used.
