Delays are a reality of the real estate industry, whether it is in getting the loan closed, the development or the construction phase. If you have ever purchased a house before, there is a good chance you experienced a delay in closing on your home; or you may have heard the horror stories from friends and family. Regardless, the same thing can happen in commercial lending, including Trust Deed investments at Ignite Funding. There are so many moving parts to close a loan between the borrower, the lender, and the Title company, that delays are just inevitable. The frequency that Ignite Funding funds loans on a monthly basis will of course subject us to more potential postponements.
