United Development Funding IV (“UDF IV”) is a real estate investment trust (REIT) that invests primarily in secured loans for the acquisition and development of land into single-family home lots and the construction of model and new single-family homes. UDF IV also makes strategic equity investments in residential real estate in some of the nation’s largest housing markets.
In 2009, UDF IV’s experienced management team forecasted shortages of homes and finished lots in desirable markets due to limited development and construction lending. UDF IV took advantage of this dynamic by filling the financing gap left by banks, and continues to help its clients capture market share in select markets with strong demand fundamentals.
Currently, UDF IV is trading on the OTC Markets (Grey Mkt: UDFI).
