MULTIPLE DETAILED LAND DEVELOPMENT BUDGETS

MARK SYSTEMS’ IHMS HOME BUILDER LAND DEVELOPMENT MODULE

The Land Development module lets builders and developers enter and maintain multiple line items and cost code detail for large complex vendor contracts, typically for projects such as land development / site improvement.

These contracts also have the ability to be tied to 3rd party vendor Pre-Liens which enables the user to process progress payments for the contract and produce joint checks in order to satisfy the pre-liens. In addition, this contract information may be used to update and maintain the project’s budget throughout the life of the project.

Each vendor contract can be entered and tracked in detail as agreed upon with the ability to add line items to account for change order detail throughout the construction process. Investor partnership reimbursement dollars as a percentage of the total contract can also be automatically tracked as progress payment vouchers are processed.
