I would like to put together a medical office building project on land I own. Where can I find information?

I have a lot of equity and in commercial land I own next to a hospital. I would like to build a medical office building. I think it would be a joint venture of some type to be able to fund the project. I would like to put together a plan before I approach others to invest. So I am looking for information on how to set up a joint venture or some other type of structure to put the project together. All sugestions will be appreciated.

FNMA/FHLLC and FHA like medical buildings. Whatever your intent, whether you look to use the equity in your land, or take on a partner, you will need a market feasibility study and all of your entitlements for any of the above to look at your funding request. As far as taking on a JV, if there is enough "skin in the project" you would likely contact a commercial realtor or a commercial broker/lender to do a search for you. The more equity you have in that land, the better your chances are of doing this alone or with a partner(s).

Depending on how large of a development you have in mind, you may consider condo office suites sold directly to Doctors. We could help you with financing to Drs if their requirements are under $2 mil per condo. Then you do not need JV Partners just to pre sell condos to Drs then you get your cash out at closing.
