    I am looking to build a building for a nursery, office and shop. I am going to talk to my banker about a loan. I don't know how much cash I will be required to put up I have heard 20%. How long can you finance a such a loan?
    Any of you guys who have done this have any comments?

    As long as you have 2 years of schedule C's.....there should be no problem getting any loan

    Just remember that the bank will be working for you. Let the bank know that you are in the market to have a bank finance your new building. Too many times people rely on one bank only. Visit a few to get a good idea of the best product for you. Also, ask if they have an actual under writer. If they use the FICO then search until you find a competant Under writer. Real Estate investors consider the FICO "Credit Report for Dummies." Oh and one more thing. You don't necessarily have to put up the 20%. Most lenders will say you do but do your research and deal only with Direct Lenders!! to avoid PMI without having to put up 20%. Hope some of this helps.
