Find out what a capital stack for builders is in this video.

Builders who are building either large or small subdivisions generally get their loans from a bank. But often, builders cannot get all the funds they need so they get funds from secondary and even third lenders.

Generally, third lenders get a portion of the profits that a commercial real estate property gets when it’s sold.

You capital stack is your lenders: A first deed of trust lender is “in line” first if a project goes south; they generally do not participate in any profits a property earns. A second deed of trust lender is, of course, second in line; they too do not often earn any equity in a deal.

A third deed of trust lender, however, because they are in last position to get any of their investment back when a real estate deal goes bad (i.e., a loan default), they often require not only higher fees and rates, but also a piece of any profits that a real estate property earns when it is sold.
