Texas Construction Lenders for Residential Investment Property
Are you building a residential investment property in Texas? On this page you'll find a list of private construction lenders for ground-up projects throughout the Lone Star State. The maximum loan-to-completed value (LTCV) for most lenders in TX is 70%. You typically need to contribute 20%-25% of the project costs and have some cash reserves. Development experience is 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 is a large state, and many lenders only consider construction loans in particular metro areas. Select a region to filter the lender list:

Funded Residential Construction Loans in Texas
i Fund Cities, an alternative lending platform built for investors, funded a $1,725,508 residential ground-up construction loan for 5 single-family homes in Leonard, Texas, a small rural town close to the DFW metro area.. The purchase price was $325,000 and the construction budget was $1,738,915. iFC funded 84% of the total project costs in 1st lien position, and the Borrower contributed 16%. The completed value was estimated to be $2,493,915 so the loan-to-completed value was 70%. We provided much higher leverage than local banks offered.
The Borrowers were experienced SFR developers who have established a strong reputation in their market, with proven success and a solid track record. They were looking to obtain optimal leverage in order to support five new construction projects while closing in an efficient manner. They had worked with banks before but found it more challenging to get “spec” home projects done with them. iFC and Jack Pagliarini, our totally on-it new Sales Rep in Dallas were quick to find a solution that met their needs, so we were able to get the process moving right away!
The key benefit to the borrower was that the developer was not only able to feel comfortable with the terms when the deal started, but they could also feel confident throughout the entire process that i Fund Cities would get their deal closed quickly. The loan term was set at 18 months, and the Borrowers planned to sell upon completion. This residential ground-up construction loan was funded in August 2022.
Private Construction Loan for DFW Builder Tired of Dealing with Unreliable Lenders in McKinney, TX
I Fund Cities (iFC), a direct private lending firm, funded a ground-up construction loan for a single-family residence in McKinney, Texas, north of Dallas. The purchase price for the land was $399,900. The construction budget was $877,800. The estimated completed value was $1,440,000. So our total loan-to-cost was 85%, and the builder contributed 15% of the total costs. Our loan term was set at 18 months. The client has been building and renovating homes at an increasing pace. Their previous lenders either ran out of funding or were hesitant to fund their new construction projects. In one recent case, their lender even left them at the loan closing table! When they called us, they were looking for a lender who didn’t shy away from deals, and who could be reliable throughout the process. iFC looked at the project but, just as importantly, we listened to the borrowers to understand their specific personal and project needs. By doing this, we were able to discover a deal structure that leveraged the best characteristics of each guarantor, providing more favorable terms and a quicker route to closing.
This private construction loan was funded in June 2022.
Key Benefit for the Borrower:
This borrower gained from iFC’s ability to close on short notice when other lenders weren’t willing to follow through.
What was the client’s experience in working with Jack and iFC? “Customer service. Hands down, unequivocally, customer service. Responsiveness, attentiveness to all of the needs, and full communication. No one can ever say i Fund Cities dropped the ball.” “With such a short timeline to close, if the borrower is not on it on their end, there was no way we could have gotten the deal done as fast as we did. It was pretty intense moving through the deal, but there was transparent, fast communication throughout the whole process.”

Lead Funding, a Colorado-based private lender, funded a $630,000 1st lien position fix and flip private money loan for a single-family home in Alamo Heights, north of San Antonio, TX.
