The challenge

There is an affordability crisis. We need to build more housing... and fast.

We must build, renovate, and climate-proof over 20 million affordable rental units in the next decade to address the acute shortage in the US housing market. The first step is to speed up the flow of funding.
Step #01

DIGITIZED APPLICATION FORMS

Make loan applications easier for everyone.

Set up your intake forms using Builders Patch and get notified when a new application is submitted.

Formulate your questions based on your evaluation criteria. Screen for development projects that:

• meet the minimum LIHTC program requirements
• meet the terms for allocation agreements
• create maximum community impact
Step #02

DUE DiLIGENCE CHECKLISTS

Underwrite your deals faster by better connecting with developers.

Share your due diligence checklist with developers and collect all required items online. Cut down on the back-and-forth: get notified when new files are uploaded, leave comments, assign tasks.

With our easy-to-navigate online tool, collecting due diligence becomes a seamless experience where next steps are clear for everyone.

The PROBLEM

Housing finance is full of silos. We need to break them down.

Underwriting a loan involves complex decision making: with your deal data scattered across teams and stored in separate files, you can’t make comparisons between deals.
Deal data
Most data is sitting in separate Excel sheets & databases. No aggregation. No comparisons.
Timelines
As a deal moves from one phase to the next, data doesn’t make it across those barriers. Repetitive entry.
Teams
Communication is slow, file sharing even slower. Co-ordination between teams needs to be smoother.
Knowledge
Training and onboarding new employees is costly. Senior staff is bogged down by their day-to-day management.
Step #03

CREDIt MEMOS & REPORTS

Create your credit memos automatically. Distribute them for approval.

Set up credit memo templates for your organization & auto-populate them with deal data. Every time you change a value, the memo gets updated. Once finalized, share with your loan committee for sign off.
Step #04

WORKFLOWS & COLLABORATION

Centralize communication & set a clear process blueprint for loan closings

Replace long email threads and file attachments with a central collaboration tool. Chat, share documents, and assign tasks to colleagues and external contributors (developer, architects, lawyers, reviewers).

Set clear workflows from the initial review of an application to loan closing. Guide your team at every step, and automate away the repetitive tasks. Focus on strategic thinking and pipeline development instead.
Step #05

STANDARDIZED DEAL DATA

Aggregate & analyze your deal data, make smarter decisions.  

Aggregate all your portfolio data into one place. Refer to past deals, compare and analyze thousands of individual data points for smarter decision-making.

Clean up and standardize all your pro forma & asset management data without any manual data entry: bring your own Excel files to upload data.
