* Raw land acquisition vs. pre-development costs vs. new construction: What financing is available and from what types of capital provider? What types of development/construction are being favored? In what locations? * Are underwriting standards getting too loose in certain markets? With so much capital hungry for deals, is it closer to being a borrowers market? * What are typical deal terms/conditions today? Timeframes to close? * How about secondary and tertiary market financing? What types of development/geographies are still not getting financed? * From the borrower perspective how does preferred equity compare to mezzanine/bridge financing in a land/pre-development/ construction deal? Are there particular deals or situations where preferred equity makes more sense than mezzanine/bridge financing for lenders or borrowers? * What do borrowers need to do to attract financing for raw land? For pre-development? For construction? * Pre-Leasing: What do lenders expect? * Risks associated with liens * Deals going bad mid-construction: What are the workout considerations for land and construction deals for borrowers and lenders?
