November 15, 2016

A live 90-minute CLE/CPE webinar with interactive Q&A

Tuesday, November 15, 2016 
1:00pm-2:30pm EDT

This CLE webinar will brief real estate and finance counsel on alternative methods of financing real estate construction projects, specifically crowdfunding, tax credits, tax increment financing and EB-5 financing.


The construction industry is in an upswing, but traditional financing is not as readily available as it was pre-recession. Savvy industry insiders continue to seek opportunistic sources of financing to increase their return on investment and have greater flexibility, driving a new era of innovation in real estate finance.

Tax credits (NMTC, HTC, LIHTC), crowdfunding and EB-5 financing are becoming more common and tax incremental financing can be a viable source of financing for urban redevelopment projects. Crowdfunding websites have become a robust alternative source of mezzanine financing that can fill the construction-lending gap left by banks and traditional lenders.

Listen as our authoritative panel of real estate finance and securities attorneys brief you on the alternative financing tools and sources of money available for construction financing, including tax credit funds, tax increment financing , EB-5 financing and crowdfunding.
