INFORMATION
Training Overview

As COVID-19 wages on, developers continue to pursue construction opportunities. They are eager to take advantage of undervalued property, available workers, reduced labor costs, low interest rates, and an expectation for future demand. Although these builders promote encouraging numbers and strong benefits, financial institutions must evaluate lending applications carefully to identify hidden risks.
