There's many new construction projects throughout the City. Many are selling well pre-construction. There are always loans available for new construction homes. Not so sure why you are having trouble. Please feel free to call Ed Dubinsky at United Capital Lenders 215-808-5353.

All the best,

Leigh. Is the new construction a house or condo? Are you a builder or consumer? If it's a condo, financing is there but it's harder. The development needs to be stable and met other guidelines of sales. If it's a house, lenders treat it the same way as a resale so you should have problems. If you are looking for a construction loan, that is still harder than it used to be. Good luck

We have a few programs that might work well for you. Do you need funds to purchase the land and build or just to build? We have something that can go up to 80% loan to value of the construction price, please feel free to contact me. Good luck.

As stated already, new construction financing is still available, it's just harder to find and harder to qualify for. In general, your best sources will either be smaller, local banks (that know Philadelphia well) or private financiers.

I have a few contacts for you if you still need help. Feel free to call/email if you need more information.

Best of luck, Leigh.
