SOLVED: How New Construction Loans Keep Real Estate Investors Thriving

The inventory of homes for sale has fallen 40% from pre-pandemic levels. According to Lisa Knee, chair of EisnerAmper, this issue stems from the last housing market crash. “After the housing market crashed in 2008, the number of new homes being built plummeted. There were 1.35 million new construction starts in 2007, but that number dropped to just 554,000 in 2009. New construction starts didn’t reach 1 million again until 2014 and have continued to lag below the 1.5 million number.” The answer to success in this precarious market is new construction.

An Unbeatable Option

“According to the latest research from CBRE, commercial real estate lending activity edged up in the first quarter of 2022, despite rising inflation and heightened geopolitical risks.” Real estate investors haven’t stopped growing their businesses because when flipping homes became difficult, they turned to new construction. 

  • Location – New construction means you get to choose your neighborhood, and we all know the three L’s of real estate, right?

  • Costs – While material costs have fluctuated throughout the year, the return on investment and sales price has only increased.

  • Expenses – Most builders offer up to a decade of warranty coverage protecting your investment and decreasing costs for several years.
  • Sustainability – Modern homes are more energy efficient from building materials to appliances. They last longer and are more appealing to buyers.

Bonus Benefits

Unlike when you flip a home, with new construction you don’t find ridiculous 50-year-old issues hiding behind every corner. Forget about knob and tube electrical, hidden termite damage, foundation problems, bad plumbing, or those light switches that do nothing. 

There’s no risk of previous do-it-yourself upgrades from homeowners that typically come in the form of duct tape fixes. Imagine a home without roof leaks, water damage, an old septic system, or sewer pipes, and no hidden oil tanks. 

New construction is more straightforward; you have a plan and build to that plan. Right now, material costs don’t compare to the cost and the value of new construction sales. In many cases, there are no extra steps of demolition to deal with.

I appreciate your team's support during the entire rehab process for my property. This is my first deal, there were a lot of unknowns that came with that. The construction process intimidated me and held me back from doing real estate for several years. Kurt has been phenomenal, he was a wealth of knowledge. I appreciate how he gets in touch to talk through in-scope item completion and aligning on ways to ensure my construction draws are adequate. I'm thankful to have someone who has my business's best interests at heart.

If you are a newbie investor, I highly recommend Builders Trust Capital because your first few deals will impact your outlook on real estate investment. If you are a seasoned investor, I also recommend the company as they now offer products for both quick flips and long holds. This way you are covered in both your entry and exit strategy. As a longtime client of Builders Trust Capital I can testify that they are the real deal and there are genuinely good people behind this business.
