Find Funding for Land Development in Utah

May 19, 2008
For many dreams, like building a hospital, a resort or even a home, the first step to making the dream a reality is finding and buying the right piece of land. Unfortunately, this is no simple task because land is expensive and becoming increasingly scarce. In the famous movie "Gone with the Wind," Gerald O'Hara tells his daughter Scarlet the value of land when he says, "Why, land is the only thing worth workin' for, worth fightin' for, worth dyin' for, because it's the only thing that lasts." For the truthfulness of this statement all you have to do is look at the price of land today.

Instead of costing a couple cents per acre or nothing at all, as it did when the west was first being settled, a single acre can easily cost several hundred thousand dollars nowadays. With prices like that, it's easy to see why many people turn to land development firms for additional funding. Getting a land development firm to consider your project can be tricky though, unless you know what you're doing.

Even if you have never headed a project before, many land development firms will be willing to consider your proposals if they are well-presented and researched. The most important thing to establish when you apply for funding is the value of the land you want to purchase and the value of the project you want to create. After all, those two things function as the collateral and they need to compensate for the risk of lending out millions of dollars. An appraisal is probably the easiest way to establish this information.

Even though you will undoubtedly be trying to impress potential lenders, you need to be sure that they are worthy of your trust and your business before you approach them. To do this, check things like the timeliness of their service, their client history and other projects that they have financed. If they have proved themselves reliable, it's time to do your homework and make their decision as easy as possible.

If you haven't found the land you are looking for yet, you might want to consider areas with space available for development. For example, Utah is much less populous than New Jersey so land in Utah will probably be more affordable. Another benefit of choosing Utah for land development is the environment. The dry climate reduces your chances for water damage and bug problems and the nearby mountains and state parks attract outdoor enthusiasts from all over the world. Just make sure, there is a water source nearby.
