    It’s time to think about our next development; last time we obtained a construction loan from Bendigo Bank via a broker for a three pack. Learned the hard way about how “discounts in one line” work in determining borrowing capacity.

    I understand that four townhouses moves us into commercial territory.

    Appreciate any comments, observations and lessons learned you have.

    Commercial Finance not the only option here, still likely to have an in-one-line val even if commercial funding required also a higher deposit required for commercial.

    If it's possible to subdivide first then go for finance construction you might open up more options - you are then going for one construction loan per block/lot/title.
