Today's question:

"How do Construction Home Loans Work?"


Construction home loans are short term loans with interest-only payments that are intended to last the length of your new home construction - up to one year.

Your construction home loan can be used to purchase a lot and pay for the home's construction, and you will only have to pay interest in segments.

The construction home loan will be accessed gradually by the custom homebuilder, who can only take out a certain amount of money at a time, as specific portions of the home are completed.  

The construction lender reviews the progress of the home to determine how much of the loan they are willing to give the builder.

Construction Home Loans:  What About when the Home is Complete? 

Once your custom homebuilder has completed your home, you will need to get permanent financing, with terms up to thirty years. 

Typical permanent financing options include:

  • Conventional financing (80% of the appraised value or less)
  • FHA which requires only 3.5% deposit based on the sales price
  • USDA and VA which allow for 100% financing of the sales price. 

All of these types of financing options can be used to pay off construction loans. 

Construction Home Loans:  Is Construction Financing Available?

Yes, a variety of construction home loans are available, with many different options.  Call Brian at 919-256-3133 for more details.
