Development Finance

  • Real estate development business planning including development, income and operating pro-formas and sources and uses.
  • Preparation of grant and funding applications
  • Asset management

A successful real estate development starts with a well-thought-out business plan. LDS creates business plans through our expertise in housing supply and demand and our keen understanding of market rate and affordable housing finance. LDS successfully helps clients sort through the challenges inherent with creating a project’s financing. Our expertise in all facets of housing development enables us to provide financial services from the idea stage through asset management.

We are equally at ease sorting out how to fund a local affordable housing plan or program as we are in creating development, operating and income pro-formas for multi-million dollar real estate developments. We understand development, operating and financing costs, so we can create a real estate product that will endure.

LDS works to identify sources of debt and equity. We work with a variety of programs, including taxable and tax-exempt bonds, HUD programs, and low income, historic and new market tax credits.
