    Entitled Raw Land

  • We get it. Gaining the legal right to develop a property for your chosen use takes time and involves a number of government agencies. While waiting for the moment when you can put a shovel in the ground you need bridge financing to keep operations moving so that you can begin making the return on your initial investment. We can help with a loan structured around your situation. It's not a "one size fits all" solution. It takes understanding your investment and the steps needed to get your project started.

    Land Acquisition and Development

  • First United's Builder Finance Group finances land development to single family residential lot developers and homebuilders that develop their own lots. The structure of these loans is designed specifically to meet the developer where they are. We consider the housing product-type, the expected absorption, and the structure of builder contracts. We will also finance entitled raw land. Our advance rates and pricing are competitive.

    Finished Developed Lots

  • First United Bank understands that our builder clients need access to finished lots and appropriately structured financing to acquire those lots for future construction. Our finished developed lot facilities are designed and structured exclusively to meet this need. These facilities are designed to soften bulk takedowns imposed by developers or aggressive takedown schedules in lot option contracts. The loan advance rates and pricing are competitive.

    Interim Construction

  • First United's Builder Finance Group offers construction financing for all "for sale" single and detached housing projects. This includes single family detached homes, townhomes, and low-rise condominiums. Loan facilities include guidance and committed construction revolvers, borrowing base revolvers, all containing sublimits that balance risk and reward. The sublimits allow for models, speculative units, and finished developed lots. Draws and inspections are handled by industry specialists and funded as frequently as the clients prefers. Our loan pricing is competitive. The structure of these facilities is designed to support our builder's style of construction.
