I'm looking into a construction loan. I have a buddy that's a mortgage broker who's looking for me but thought I'd check to see if anyone on here is in the business. It's for a major (basically a gut and redo) project. I'm hoping to owner/builder but might go with a contractor if the price is right. I've found that owner/builder is quite a bit less expensive - but I travel a LOT and am spending most of my time outta town so if the premium isn't too high I would consider a one stop shop. I have the plans - were reviewed by one engineer but there were significant changes and the engineering needs to be done again. Should be quick. I have a line on a couple of engineers. So - anyone work for a bank doing construction loans?
