–Construction factoring aids builders recovering from ailing construction market–

BETHESDA, MD–(Marketwire–July 21, 2011) – The Interface Financial Group (IFG), North America’s largest alternative funding source for small businesses, reports that even though the U.S. housing construction market rose to 14.6 percent in June to an annual rate of 629,000, the first increase since March, many builders and contractors are still suffering, and there’s an increase in the need for construction factoring services.

According to the Commerce Department, the housing construction market may be on the way to recovery as it rose to its highest level since January with most of this growth in the multifamily arena. Housing starts in the second quarter fell at an annual rate of 4.5 percent to 576,000, versus 582,000 during the first quarter. Historically, the level of total housing starts is about 72 percent below the peak registered in January 2006 which was 2.273 million units.

IFG’s Chief Operating Officer Sabeen Ahmed said, “Construction factoring services provides contractors with cash flow during tough economic times. We can fund almost any construction project, and we work with both contractors and subcontractors who need cash to pay suppliers. IFG has been doing construction factoring financing for over 40 years.”

Factoring services is the purchase of financial assets, or receivables accounts by a factoring company which differs from traditional bank loans. A bank loan involves two parties, while factoring involves three parties. Banks base their decisions on a company’s credit worthiness, whereas factoring is based on the value of the company’s receivables. Spot Invoice factoring requires no minimums or maximums, and no long-term commitments.
