If you are lending to land developers who take raw land and apply for permission to develop and then if permission is granted they do the improvements before selling on you are really at the risky end for what is not a great added return.


true, though if you are lending at a comfortable LTV - the result can be win/win. You win if they perform on the note as promised or you win if they do not perform by owning the land @ a price you've pre-determined to be acceptable for ownership.
