I don’t know who gave you the idea of pooling all of your assets into one loan, but it’s NOT a good one.
First of all construction loans and permanent take out financing, are two different types of loans, designed to do two different things. The correct way of doing this, would be to get a construction loan to build houses on the two lots, and then get individual, what we call “take out loans”( permanent financing) on each property, allowing diversification.
I can appreciate you doing what I call “clean up your financing” meaning having definitive financing accomplishing maximum results.
Even If I were to put your financing together under temporary circumstances under a blanket loan, or cross collateralize, I would want to make sure I had release clauses.
What you haven’t given us is NUMBERS. We don’t even know if your numbers based on individual properties, what’s owed on each property, LTV’s and equity position, will work? The Cash flow is also questionable; due to you haven’t discussed it, or told us how much you would spend to build on the two lots, what you would build on the two lots, and what type of income could be expected in return?
The commercial building that you’re lease/optioning, and are considering purchasing, could be bought with some creative financing as well, such as having the seller carry back in second position etc.
