Success with construction loans, at the all-important “take-out” stage, requires:
- Timely completion of the project, within budget or at a workable cost
- Completion, free of litigation or mechanics liens
- Realization of projected income from the development

While you may or may not believe there will be any significant change in the economy or real estate markets, increasing interest rates and a 10-Year Treasury at about 3% have a definite impact on cap rates, real estate prices, loan interest rates, and lease rates.
