Acquisition & Development Financing

When most people think of real estate investing, they think of buying homes and commercial buildings they will either rent out or flip and resell for a higher price. However, this isn’t the only type of real estate investing you can choose. In fact, acquiring land and developing it into something businesses can use can be a lucrative way to make money in the field of real estate. This often requires a land development loan, which is typically secured by a mortgage to develop an empty lot of land into something that can be used by companies for a variety of purposes.

What Is Involved

There are a lot of factors when it comes to land development loans. First and foremost, there is the cost of the property that will be purchased and broken up into smaller subsections that will be improved to make room for businesses of all kinds. In addition, there are the hard costs, which refer to the cost of the construction of the buildings that will house the businesses that rent them. These properties are often built in a generic manner so they can be tailored to the needs of a variety of business types. Finally, there are several soft costs that should be included in the lending for this type of real estate investment. These costs include sales commissions, interest reserves and more. Be sure you understand all of the associated costs so you obtain the appropriate amount of funding you require.

Five stars for Michael and his team. They closed our hard money deal for our client so smoothly and quickly, you’d think they used magic instead of paperwork. Efficient, communicative, and competitive. Highly recommend for a stress free hard money experience.

Michael and Lara were fantastic to work with. This was our first hard money deal and we had 30 days to close on our Mesa warehouse. We ended up closing in only 18 days, and only because we were delayed in getting proof of building insurance. They could have funded us in around 10 days which is crazy fast! Michael was super friendly, always available by phone, and helped explain and guide us through the entire process. It was smooth and fast from day 1. Entire underwriting process was easy and fast. This will be the first of many deals we'll do with them from now on, so we can make more competitive all cash offers. I really liked working with this group and highly recommend.
Response from the owner: Thank you so much for the kind words. You were extremely helpful as well and allowed us to close it quick because of your communication as well. I am excited to do many many loans for you and this was just the first of many. Appreciate your business immensely !

All requirements were met and we were able to close without delays.I highly recommend everyone to work with Michael and his team and insist on working with Laura, Michael’s loan processor’ whom without her diligence, our loan probably would’ve been delayed.Together they are an amazing team.
Response from the owner: Thank you so much Daniel! You were extremely helpful in making this possible!! Looking forward to working with you many more times!

All I have to say is that Mike is well known and I’ve worked with him in the past, as well. He will get it done. In this case we had 48 hours. He got it out and signed in 24 hours, from the time I brought it to him. Saved customers house. Fantastic job, Mike.
Response from the owner: Tim, we appreciate working with you again and as always. You made it very easy and we are delighted with the result!

I read Michael's ad in a home buying magazine and after having two other loan "order takers" just give up, I decided to give him a call. Best thing I could have done. Working with Michael is such a great relief because he gets that not every loan is some "cookie cutter, fit the formula" type of transaction. He takes the time to ask questions and find out what the goal of the loan is. In my case it was to unlock equity in other properties so I could better leverage my rentals. Michael had the knowledge and contacts to get my loan completed, and offered a few different solutions .Michael's assistant Lara made sure everything got done right, and on time. She is great to work with, and responded quickly to any question I had. Together they make a great team and I look forward to working with them in the future.
Response from the owner: David, thank you so much for your reply. We loved working with you and you were extremely prompt and responsive so it's certainly made it easier and faster. We are looking forward to working with you again soon!

Michael Luculano and his team are nothing short of miracle workers in making a complex deal easy.My wife and I were recently visiting Scottsdale for her birthday and had decided to look at a few homes. Nothing immediate, just getting ideas for the future. Then on the last day we run into the perfect new construction home, only problem is we weren't prepared to buy. Most of our long-term funding was tied up in our home back in Oregon and to complicate things further, the seller had another cash offer on the table and a ridiculously fast 3 week closing requirement to secure the property.So, we took a leap of faith and called Hard Money Lenders with Barrett Financial and got Michael on the phone. That quickly took us from an impossible deal to closing on our new home in record time. Michael clearly communicated all the terms and numbers up front. And being such a rapid deal with a large amount of escrow on the line, he personally checked in with us daily.We have worked with a lot of great people in the real estate and mortgage industries for over 30 years and have to say that Michael is one of the top professionals we have ever met. A true expert in mortgage and bridge loans / private lending. Even better, it was clear to us every day that Michael truly cares about his clients. Best phone call we could have ever made.Thank you, Michael and Lara, for helping us make this North Scottsdale dream a reality!
Response from the owner: Sean, it was an honor to get the opportunity to work with you. I take my clients very seriously and it was awesome to work with you on this and earn the right to share in your joy. You were very responsive to all my calls and you were definitely a contributor in the outcome. I appreciate this opportunity immensely and welcome to Arizona!

Excellent service! Michael was able to close our loan at a lower interest rate than originally quoted, as an added benefit to the already pleasant experience of working with Michael & his team. We closed ahead of time, no suprises, no drama, just positive results. The professional, dedicated staff was impressive as well. For positive results, this should be your mortgage choice.
Response from the owner: Cindy, it was an absolute pleasure to work with you and you certainly made it easier by being so thorough. Thank you so much and we hope to work with you again soon!

Working with Michael was an absolute pleasure. I have done a lot of real estate transactions over the years and appreciate it when someone cares about their customer and getting the deal done on time and at the terms I was quoted. There are many bait and switch lenders out there but Michael and his team were always available when I had a question and when a potential issue popped up he was on it even while on vacation to get it resolved. That’s the type of service I expect and appreciate. Highly recommend if you’re looking to finance a deal.Steven

Michael and his team are amazing. I want to tell you that you cannot find a better broker who has the patience of a goat. Michael works tirelessly for his clients. I thought I was getting on his nerves but he is a seasoned professional and got the deal done. He is super fast 48 hours and it was done. He's simply the best.

Understand the Percentages

If you’ll be working with a hard money lender in Arizona for this type of project, it’s important to understand what you can expect in terms of lending percentages. As a developer, you are likely to be required to put down at least 25 percent of the purchase price of the entire project cost. You will need at least 30 percent of the cost of the land itself. As a general rule of thumb, however, most hard money lenders won’t exceed more than 50 percent of the loan-to-value of refinancing the land. Many reasonable individuals are willing to fund up to 70 percent of this cost as long as the other 30 percent is being paid for in cash. If an investor goes into this project paying for their portion with any other type of loan or with credit toward work that has already been performed, the amount a hard money lender is likely to contribute will fall dramatically. In most cases, it can fall as far 55 percent of the loan-to-value ratio.

Understanding the basics of acquisition, development financing and hard money loans will help you determine if this kind of real estate investing is right for you and prepare you for what you need to make this type of investment happen.
