Quick Close New Construction Loan – Chicago, IL

Sometimes deals come with a countdown—especially in the hypercompetitive seller’s market of 2021. In a time-sensitive environment, real estate investors need a team they can depend on. Unfortunately, not every lender can deliver on its sales pitch.

On this deal, a borrower and his broker found out just a few weeks before the scheduled closing that another lender was dropping out of a deal. So, they called Lima One Capital looking to keep their scheduled closing on a vacant lot in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois. Lima One was able to use the appraisal the borrower had in hand to expedite closing on the borrower’s schedule.
