Designed for vertical construction of projects such as multi-family housing, single-family housing, commercial, office, and industrial buildings, our construction loans are underwritten against the completed value of your project so you have more funding flexibility.
Our land development loans provide funding for the soft costs and entitlements required for development, such as hiring architects, engineers, and environmental and other consultants.
We provide interim, or short-term, funding to cover the gap between when a construction loan comes due and long-term financing can be arranged. We base our loans on the completed value of the project, minimizing additional equity or cash requirements.
Designed for major improvements on multi-family units as well as commercial, office, hospitality, and industrial buildings, our rehab loans cover major upgrades such as tenant improvements, studs-out remodels, expansions, and redevelopment.

Highest Degree of Leverage
We loan against the completed value of your project, with no loan-to-cost requirements. As a result, we can provide more funding for your project than a bank can and that means more flexibility for you.Speed / Convenience
We can close as quickly as 5 days, and draws are wired within one to two business days after inspection approval. Banks can take months to review a typical real estate project. In that time, our clients’ projects are already underway and on the way to realizing profits.
Unmatched Industry Expertise
We’ve closed approximately $2 billion in project capital over more than 1000 loans (and counting). Our level of construction market intelligence is second to none.In-House Manual Underwriting
We evaluate every deal on its own merits and are faster and more flexible in the evaluation process than traditional financing such as banks. You’ll typically get feedback within the same day of your request and a term sheet within as little as 24 to 48 hours.

I really appreciate all you did for us. Having our original construction loan mature before we were qualified for conventional financing could have cost us our business. You stepped up and helped us. I would recommend you in the future without hesitation!
Broadmark has financed numerous development, construction, and rehab loans for us. Their ability to close a loan quickly combined with their prompt draw funding has allowed us to make bargain purchases and take advantage of vendor and subcontractor discounts.
Broadmark has become my primary source for private money loans. Their underwriting and due diligence process is fast and efficient. I know my clients will receive outstanding service when dealing with them.
Broadmark had the confidence in me to finance my first project after the market downturn. With their help I developed, built, and sold a successful multi-home project. I will continue to use them for my lending requirements.
Broadmark separates themselves by doing what they say they are going to do. I have worked with other hard-money lenders and they do not compare to the service and execution that they deliver. They will always have a first right of refusal on my future projects.
Being a young developer/builder I encounter a lot of challenges. Broadmark has been a valuable business partner to have through the process of guidelines, budgeting, and management. I know that I can pick up the phone and call these guys at a drop of a hat and they will always respond and assist me with whatever I need.
