What is a construction loan?

This is a type of short-term financing to cover all the costs of the construction process from breaking ground to obtaining a certificate of occupancy. It’s possible to make interest-only payments during construction. Once your new home is ready, your construction loan balance must be converted to a conventional mortgage loan.

Instead of paying out a lump sum, your contractor can make draw requests at each stage of the process. We will also inspect the progress along the way.

Types of Construction Loans

  • Construction-To-Permanent Loan: The application process and closing day–temporary financing is automatically converted to a long-term mortgage.
  • Renovation Loan: Instead of building a brand new home, you buy a fixer-upper and borrow the cost of renovations in your mortgage.

Land Loans vs. Construction Loans

If you want to buy land and start building on it right away, you’ll want a construction loan. If you already own land and are ready to build, a construction loan would also be the best option.

If you just want to buy your land now and build at a later point, a land loan is probably the best option.
