Construction firms operate on narrow profit margins and the success of construction projects is hinged upon proper financing. Construction Funding is the only single volume, concise text on the financial aspects of building and developing. The book acquaints the reader with a set of procedures specifically designed to solve the unique financial challenges facing the construction industry. It guides the reader step-by-step through each phase of financing a development project, from simple one-family residences to large multi-unit complexes. Construction Funding also addresses raising capital, selecting markets, rating sites, insurance, joint ventures, loan options, and cash flow management. Separate sections are devoted to the conduct of profitability studies and to finding after-tax rates of return. Construction Funding, Fourth Edition, has been updated to provide current costs and funding methods and additional learning features such as key terms, review questions, and learning objectives.

5 Stars What a Phenomenal Job!
I read construction funding, prematurely perhaps, as one of my first ever real estate books – and I loved it! The book takes the reader through several once-real-life scenarios and explains the construction process step by step. I think that both ambitious beginners and more seasoned loan officers and developers would benefit from reading this book.

Very interesting? book; very easy to read.
As a small real estate investor I found it very helpful in understanding many of the ins and outs of real estate and financing, especially on the scale i would like to grow to.
5 Stars Good if you’re serious
This isnt a book for someone who wants to dabble in real estate investment. This is a book for big time investors (or people who want to be big time.) It is great if you’re looking at large projects like apartment complexes, and it’s well written.
5 Stars A first class book on Real Estate Development
The third edition of Construction Funding by Nathan S. Collier et al is a remarkable demonstration of insight and expertise. Collier and colleagues provide an exceptionally lucid description and analysis of the process of real estate development that is accessible to non-experts while being authoritative at the same time. In addition to being an excellent text for students and others interested in careers in real estate development, this book serves as essential background for all those whose responsibilities include any part of the development process.
