The first guideline states that if loans for construction, land development, and other land are 100% or more of total risk-based capital, the institution is considered to have loans concentrations above prudent risk levels, and should have heightened risk management practices.
The second guideline covers overexposure to construction and development loans including loans secured by multifamily and commercial properties. If loans for construction, land development, and other land, and loans secured by multifamily and commercial property are 300% or more of total risk-based capital, the institution would be considered to have CRE concentrations above prudent levels, and should employ heightened risk management practices.
Pipeline is the ratio of money lent on real estate loans vs. total loan commitments. A pipeline around 60% funded is considered healthy, while a pipeline ratio of 80% and higher is considered a potential problem. At 100% the bank has fully funded all real estate loan commitments.
