The Interface Financial Group Predicts Improvement in Construction Factoring Due to June 15% Gain in Starts

McGraw-Hill Construction Reports Rise in June Construction Starts, Which Means Contractors May Need to Use Construction Factoring Services to Generate Cash

BETHESDA, MD--(Marketwire - Aug 23, 2011) - According to The Interface Financial Group (IFG), the July 22, 2011 construction report from McGraw-Hill Companies regarding a 15 percent increase in new construction starts in June was a good indication that construction factoring will soon gain as well.

The report said nonresidential building registered improvement in June, while housing edged up slightly. However, during the first six months of 2011, total construction starts on an unadjusted basis were at $198.2 billion, which was down 7 percent overall from the same period in 2010.

Contractors, sub-contractors, or construction companies from within this sector benefit from factoring more than many other business sectors. When a contractor uses a factoring company, the construction firm can realize a fast turnaround in cash, within 24 to 48 hours for accounts receivable that are due for the completed stages of a given construction project.

According to IFG's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer George Shapiro, "Construction factoring is often favored by the building industry because a contractor cannot begin construction on a new project if they have not been paid for the last phase. They would typically need the working capital to hire labor and or buy supplies. Therefore, factoring enables a faster turnaround on construction projects."

Unlike a loan, factoring services is the purchase of financial assets, or receivables accounts by a factoring company. There are no credit checks or upfront fees and no co-signers required.
