It still gets down to assets, credit, income, etc. no matter how you structure any loan. What assets/collateral would this other entity have. You would have to have a pretty strong financial statement/s with accessible collateral for anyone, even hard money lender, to consider funding any type of loan. Especially a construction loan.
I am in the LA county area.
As for what type of loans I am debating between a vacant lot and construction of a new spec house or rehabbing an exsisting house. Many banks won't loan because it is not my primary residence. I also am partnered with others. We want the name of the loan to be under the business and not just me.
