Acquisition Loans

AHC's St. James Plaza

When the right property comes along, you need to be ready. Whether you’re purchasing an operating building or buying land for future development, an acquisition loan gives you the resources to act when the time is right. 

With an acquisition loan from NeighborWorks Capital, members of the NeighborWorks America network can quickly acquire the property they need, even if they’re not quite ready to start renovation or development. Whether you need a primary funding source or to fill a gap left by traditional lending sources, NeighborWorks Capital can help.

When the right property comes up for sale, you don’t have time to wait on slow funding sources. Our loan officers are ready to help you close quickly so you can act on that opportunity. With proactive support and a knowledgeable team, we get you through the loan application processes as quickly as possible. Ask us about: 

  • Land and property acquisition loans
  • Loan amounts up to $10,000,000
  • Fixed interest rates starting at 5%
