A lot depends on how much you can put down. I local lender is offering 90% LTV.

Hi! It depends on what kind of land you are talking about. If it's commercial land for future development, that's pretty tricky. If it's a lot for your personal home for a residence, that's easier. Banks in this area have been hit hard by lot loans that have gone bad, so they are a little skittish. Also, they are not interested in developer loans at this time. Unfortunately, it has to fit in a certain box, but if it fits it can be done! If you can elaborate on the type of land you are referring to, I can be more specific. Thanks!
