Construction Financing

Optimus Capital Inc SFR New Construction Financing Program.

Optimus Capital Inc offers an excellent new construction financing program for funding builder’s projects with private money. The New Construction Financing Program is available nationwide, except in a few states.

The Optimus Capital Inc Construction Financing Program is designed for home builders or real estate investors who are building ground up single family homes 1 to 4 units. This program requires minimal paperwork and offers a quick closing. This Optimus Capital Program is designed to build one single family home 1 – 4 units on one lot. (One APN)

If a borrower is building more than one single family home 1 – 4 unit; additional new construction SFRs will need to be on additional APNs / lots. We allow the new construction of one single family home which can be a one unit single family home, duplex, triplex, or 4plex to be built on one lot which has one APN.

An appraisal is required to be ordered. The closing can happen usually within days of the appraisal report being received by our underwriting team. 

Some of the most important factors that we are looking at are the following:

  • New construction or ground up experience (where past title was held by the borrower on previous projects)
  • Meeting minimum credit score requirements
  • Clear background report
  • Solid project with acceptable margins

The Optimus Capital New Construction Program can be used for land acquisition, tear down, or new construction. 

If used for land acquisition, plans for the single family home 1-4 unit that is going to be constructed is needed upon submission. 

This program is used for acquisition of a lot with plans to build new construction only. Ground up construction must immediately follow the acquisition of the land.
