Commercial Site Development Financing

“Commercial Site Development Financing Can Be Very Sensitive To Location”

Commercial site development financing typically will depend a great deal on the location of the development as well as the type and structure of the development.

For instance, here in Ontario, there is a lot of site development financing available, but most of it will not venture beyond the boundaries of the Greater Toronto Area or GTA.

The same is true in other parts of the country where construction financing sources tend to focus heavily on the major metropolitan centers.

The reasons for this are fairly obvious.

Within larger markets, the ability to successfully exit a project in the event of borrower default is going to be higher in a larger market than in a smaller one, all other factors being equal.

And when you have markets like Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, and Edmonton where the real estate activity is high and and growing, there is likely going to be more opportunities not only for the borrower to be successful with their project through resale of lots, but also for the lender in the event that the project stalls out for some reason.

This is not to say that commercial site development financing cannot be secured in solid communities that are outside of the main population centres, but the process for locating proper financing and getting it in place can certainly be a lot harder to accomplish, taking more time and money to complete in many cases.

The sources of site development financing that will look at projects in more rural or less populated areas can also be hard to locate as many of them will work through broker networks when originating and placing development financing.

The challenges will even relate to locations where the population is at or near hundred thousand so its not safe to assume that just because the project is well designed and a good fit for the local market that it will be easy or straightforward to get the commercial site development financing you are looking for.

If you’re planning out a commercial site development project either for lot development for resale, or internal use, or you’re in the middle of a site development project that still has a financing requirement, I suggest that you give me a call so we can go through your requirements together and discuss different construction development financing options that may be available to you.
