Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The third edition of Construction Funding by Nathan S. Collier et al is a remarkable demonstration of insight and expertise. Collier and colleagues provide an exceptionally lucid description and analysis of the process of real estate development that is accessible to non-experts while being authoritative at the same time. In addition to being an excellent text for students and others interested in careers in real estate development, this book serves as essential background for all those whose responsibilities include any part of the development process." (John V. Lombardi President, University of Florida (1990-1999)

    Lacks Detail

    I am a CFO of a major construction lending Company in the Midwest and I purchased this textbook for my new staff to read as a learning tool. I have not been able to find anything outlining the terms/conditions that we come across in construction finance to assist the staff in their career path. I was hoping this would help - this is elementary with no content - discussing your purchases of a condo/apt conversion is vein and serves no purpose of construction funding - maybe i will write a book from when the customer walks in the door until they walk into their home, the entire process. How can it be titled Construction Funding when their is little discussion on the actual lender side of the game -
