How Do These Loans Work?

Ground-Up Construction Loans

Ground-up construction loans are a specialized financial tool that provides the crucial capital required to initiate your ambitious business project. It could be a state-of-the-art commercial property, a residential development, a condo, or a groundbreaking office space. At Pacific Northwest Capital Partners, we’ve facilitated a number of ventures, assisting entrepreneurs, general contractors, developers, and real estate investors in completing their projects. 

Past Projects

$1,290,000– Queen Anne Rehab Loan: PNWCP provided 100% of the purchase price.

$2,550,000 – Luxury Homes Ground-Up Construction Project: Went into supporting the development of three magnificent residences with prime golf course frontage in Suncadia.

$690,000.00 – Olympia Land Purchase: We supported the acquisition of 6 acres zoned for multifamily use adjacent to Interstate 5 in Olympia.

Construction Completion Loans

These are designed to bridge the gap between the final stages of a project and its successful completion. They offer borrowers the necessary financial resources to cover remaining construction expenses, finalize last-minute touches, and ensure that the project reaches its full potential without any financial constraints.

Past Projects

$210,000.00– Aberdeen 12-Unit Apartment Complex Refinance: Our loan amount included $35,000 for building renovations in Aberdeen, which enhanced the value and functionality of the property.

$263,000.00 – Tacoma Commercial Rehab/Construction Completion Project: We supported the development of 10 apartments upstairs and three commercial spaces downstairs in Tacoma.

$109,000 – Bank-Owned Marysville Single-Family Residence: We funded 100% of the purchase price, closing costs, and $14,000 in rehab/construction costs. PNWCP took the first position on the subject property, enabling the completion of the flip without any out-of-pocket expenses.

What Types of Construction Projects Are Considered?

Does your project fit the bill? Pacific Northwest Capital Partners casts a wide net regarding eligible construction ventures in Washington. These include boutique hotels, commercial spaces, residential developments, investment properties, multifamily units, rental properties, “shovel-ready” projects, and more.

If your project has a business purpose and isn’t an owner-occupied primary residence, chances are good that it’s the kind of project we can support with hard money loans.

Why Choose Pacific Northwest Capital Partners for Ground-Up Construction & Construction Completion Loans?

Hard Money Loans

1. Flexibility in approval: Hard money types of loans often prioritize the value of the property over the borrower’s credit score. This means that borrowers with unique or complex financial situations have a higher chance of approval.

2. Quick access to construction funds: At PNWCP, our streamlined loan processes ensure efficient funding and minimal delays.

3. Tailored financing solutions: We understand that each project is unique. Borrowers get a construction financing package tailored to their specific needs.

Interest Only Payments

1. Lower initial payments: Interest-only payments allow borrowers to pay solely the interest accrued on the loan for a specified period. An interest-only draw schedule will result in lower monthly payments than traditional principal and interest rate payments or conventional mortgages.

2. Flexibility in budgeting: They have a predictable payment structure during the interest-only period. Borrowers can budget effectively without sudden fluctuations.

3. Enhanced cash flow: By paying only the interest option, borrowers can free up cash flow during the initial stages of the project.

Flexible Loan Terms

1. Adaptability to changing circumstances: Borrowers can adapt to unforeseen changes or opportunities during their construction with flexible terms.

2. Customized repayment structures: Borrowers can tailor repayment schedules to align with their project milestones and cash flow.

3. Mitigated financial pressure: Our loans can bring breathing room to your project, especially during project phases that might experience fluctuations in revenue or unexpected expenses.
