A construction loan helps borrowers manage periodic payments for contract work during the building of a real estate asset. Construction financing is available for condominiums, retail, office, industrial, retirement and purpose-built apartments. CMHC-insured construction financing is available for purpose-built apartment buildings, retirement and affordable housing.

An exit strategy for the construction loan is one of the key considerations for funding (i.e. CMHC standard financing). Other critical considerations include the borrower’s experience in real estate development.
