Silver Fern Capital

What We Do:

Providing financial solutions to homebuilders

In today’s market, both private and public homebuilders are subject to the compound constraints of a limited supply of finished lots and the capital market’s admonition to keep undeveloped land off of their balance sheets.

Silver Fern Capital provides:


Home builders off-balance-sheet financing at a competitive rate for land acquisition and lot development, freeing up capital and time for the primary objective — vertical residential development.



Finished lots pursuant to a guaranteed fixed price contract. Concurrently with loan closing, the homebuilder will contract to purchase the to-be-developed lots on a rolling lot option purchase contract.



Silver Fern Capital offers builders a "one stop shop" development and land banking option where they can contract for finished lots on a rolling option and Silver Fern Capital will be the entity that they will contract with. As the builder, your primary benefit is having the ability to contract for finished lots purchased by the builder on a roll, with a 20% deposit.

Simply put, Silver Fern Companies allows homebuilders to operate the way you do best —as a home building company, not a development company.

Investment Opportunity

Partner with a trusted industry leader

The Phoenix single family home market has turned: sales volume and sale prices are up and for-sale inventory is down. Homebuilders, who were in survival mode for the last four years, are scrambling to secure finished lots in the best sub-markets. Finished lot inventory is down, and in select sub-markets, finished lot prices have doubled and even tripled over the last 12 months.

At the peak, the Phoenix market had 1,250 active subdivisions, presently there are 314 active subdivisions, of which 66% are projected to sell out in the next 12 months. Re-sale inventory is down to a four year low and single family residential permits are up 50% year of year, leaving the finished lot market clearly undersupplied.
