Construction lending and securing a commercial construction loan is a complex process. Whether it is a short-term financing or long-term permanent financing, lending has traditionally been done locally as lenders have a very good understanding of the local market and reputation of the borrowers and parties involved. Being cautious in the lending practice, along with regulatory changes and lessons learned from the most recent recession have lenders taking their time. However, that upfront due diligence is important to manage as mistakes cost time and money.
