It was posted by Fred, the Cohousing-L list manager <fholson [at] cohousing.org> after deleting quoted digest. -------------------- FORWARDED MESSAGE FOLLOWS -------------------- Very interesting. We had two banks (both of which had worked with us in the past) turn down our third cohousing neighborhood, TREE, for a construction loan. We've had excellent luck with one of our local credit unions, CFCU, which was very happy to loan us $3M for construction, and will probably carry all the mortgages as well. We've never had any defaults in our history of 16 years of mortgage lending, with two neighborhoods and a total of 60 homes. So it seemed very strange to me that with a proven track record, and homes that just keep increasing in value, that the other banks were not interested. This thread helps to explain that.
