On this build in the Boise suburbs, the investor had purchased the lot for $185,000 and planned for a construction budget of $597,500. The new construction loan from Lima One would cover 90% of the blended loan-to-cost for both the land and the property. The builder had a contract on the three-bedroom, three-bathroom home for $970,000 before construction was complete, ensuring a $200,000-plus profit on the build. This build was one of three in Eagle, Idaho, that this experienced builder financed with Lima One Capital in early 2022 in the heart of a market with the strongest home price appreciation at the time.
Lima One’s interest-only, fixed-rate 13-month loan and efficient construction draw process helped the builder execute quickly to complete the build and claim the profit. Plus, the builder did not have to pay interest on undrawn construction funds, making the loan terms even more beneficial. The builder’s first three loans with Lima One came with a simple, clear process because the builder knew he was preapproved for $2 million in exposure. That allowed the builder to profit from three new builds in a hot market, and then recertify for future builds financed by Lima One.
The subject property was newly built. This SFR ground-up construction loan was funded in July 2022.
