Austin Construction Lenders for Residential Investment Property

Are you building a residential investment property in the Austin metro area? On this page you'll find a list of private construction lenders for ground-up projects throughout Austin's urban areas. The maximum loan-to-completed value (LTCV) for most lenders is 70%. You typically need to contribute 20%-25% of the project costs and have some cash reserves. Experience is almost always required. Most lenders will require the project to be fully entitled and shovel ready. A small percentage of lenders will consider land acquisition and/or horizontal financing. The lenders listed here can fund a single home build, or a development with multiple homes. We have a separate page for lenders that offer ground-up construction financing for commercial properties.

Texas Ground Up Construction Insights from a Local Lender

In the last 2-3 years, the state of Texas has seen a significant rise in migration from other states in the country, due to the rise in interest rates and inflation. Stephen King, an Account Executive at Easy Street Capital, states that this rise has “increased the need for residential new construction.” He also makes a point that not only are people moving their residents to Texas but large corporations are also starting to move their headquarters to Texas, adding to the increased need for ground up construction projects.

This increased migration has created a new trend in the HOA communities throughout Texas. Stephen says in the last 3-5 years investors have been purchasing large lots to build anywhere from a couple hundred homes to a couple thousand homes creating one HOA facility. He says, “instead of doing a single family, most are converting into a duplex or quadplex. So they make the most of what the land has there.”

Popular Markets for Texas Ground Up Construction Projects to Consider

According to Easy Street Capital, the cities that have seen the most influx in residential new construction in the last 2-3 years are Houston, Dallas and Austin. Stephen states that in addition to the larger metropolitan areas in Texas, they have also seen an increase in construction near the coastal areas such as Galveston and Corpus Christi.
