buildingUnited Development Funding (“UDF”) was founded in 2003 on the concept of providing investors with an opportunity to diversify their portfolios with unique and fundamentally sound investments in affordable residential real estate.


Since its inception, UDF has steadily earned a reputation through its multiple funds for originating and participating in real estate financing structures for residential land acquisition and development, delivering value to its clients and favorable returns to its investors.

UDF invests in the development and construction of new, affordable, single-family homes through a family of public and private funds, which direct investor capital towards the financing of homebuilders and land developers. We operate in select markets across the country, which demonstrate strong demand fundamentals, growing economies, and affordable home pricing. UDF understands the capital requirements inherent in land acquisition and development and the scarcity of favorable financing options present to builders and developers. To address these needs, our offerings range from equity and land asset holdings to mezzanine and debtor-in-possession financing to secured first lien loans, giving us the flexibility and agility to structure and quickly execute effective transactions.

A Reputation Built On Integrity And Performance

Over the past ten years, UDF has built a reputation for bringing together some of the finest minds in the real estate industry to identify promising investments in residential real estate development. We are known for being selective in our market presence, effective in our finance structure, and comprehensive in our analysis. We have cultivated close working relationships with the homebuilding industry, as shown by our number of repeat clients for our financial products.

Risk Factors

Investing in our securities involves a high degree of risk. You should purchase our securities only if you can afford a complete loss of your investment. Please read and consider the risk factors in the prospectus/memorandum before purchasing any securities. The most significant risks include the following: absence of a public market for our securities and a lack of liquidity; lack of an operating history, established financing sources, or identification of future investments; dependence on our advisor to select our investments; reduced ability to diversify our investment portfolio if we raise substantially less than our maximum offering amount; ability to change the methods of implementing our investment policies without approval by our security holders; payment of substantial fees to our advisor and its affiliates; conflicts of interest facing us and our advisor and its affiliates; the potential incurrence of substantial debt; absence of any guarantee that you will receive distributions or a return of capital; and our ability to borrow, use offering proceeds, issue additional securities or sell assets in order to fund distributions.

Past performance is not indicative of future results. No UDF program can give any assurance that it will be able to pay or maintain distributions, or that distributions will increase over time. The amount of cash available for distributions will be affected by many factors, such as the ability to purchase or originate loans as offering proceeds become available, operating expense levels, as well as many other variables. Please consult the prospectus/memorandum for a complete discussion of risk factors which can affect distributions.
