Ground-up Loan vs. Conventional Loan

Ground-up construction loans come with unique advantages compared to traditional loans from banks and other lenders.

Here are some of them below:

Speed & Efficiency

With a ground-up loan from Longleaf Lending, you can expect a fast and easy application process that enables you to beat the competition and avoid missing out on any deals. Our ground-up financing offers quick approval and funding, allowing you to seize lucrative opportunities without delay.

Asset-based Lending

Our ground-up loan is based on the value of the property itself. This means that even if you have less-than-perfect credit or limited experience, you can still qualify for our financing solutions.

Flexible Terms

Traditional loans are notoriously known for tedious processes, strict rules, and burdensome regulations. Say goodbye to the lengthy paperwork and bureaucratic red tape associated with traditional lenders.

No strict limitations on property type and condition

While banks and traditional lenders have strict regulations on the types of renovations and property condition they will approve for funding, with a ground up hard money loan, you can secure a loan for properties that are in a state of disrepair.

No pre-payment penalties

In traditional loans, you will typically get penalized for paying off the loan before its maturity date. With a ground-up loan, that is not the case. Structured specifically to cater to the needs of a real estate investor, the ground-up loan will help real estate investors make a quick turnaround on their investment.
