We (Monterey Cohousing) are wrestling with the issue of getting financing, and getting very frustrated. The story keeps changing, both ( I think) as people (lenders, agency people, etc) really understand our structure and, maybe, because things change. I should make it clear, here, that I am only peripherally involved in this, so I don't know and haven't wanted to know all the details. My current question relates to the need/utility of getting FHA approval (or VA, FNMA, I don't know what else). For a while, we pursued this for, I think, two reasons: 1. ease of resale financing later 2. easier to get conventional financing w/ project approved. Then we were advised that we didn't need it, and pursued independent banks, who don't "bundle and sell" their loans, and then we started to get the message that maybe the independents wouldn't be very willing to work with us. One bank has a program that might work, but may only have it for the next 120 days, and there is no way we could meet that timetable ( move in that fast). We have a meeting set up for Monday with some development consultants, and will see what they can contribute. So. . . meanwhile, started again with the documents for the Feds. Has anyone out there been through this process? Any hints, war stories?
