Applying for and getting approved for a mortgage and a construction loan can be the most stressful part of buying a home. On top of that, building a home makes things a bit more complicated. We’re here to help you make smart choices and get through the financing process with a little less pain.
How to get financed for new construction
When it comes to paying for a new home, you’re going to be dealing with two types of loans, a mortgage and a construction loan. The construction loan finances the construction of the house, and the mortgage pays off the construction loan. You move in and then pay on your mortgage.
The problem is that mortgage lenders and construction lenders aren’t even the same type of lenders. A mortgage lender functions the same way that it would if you were buying a house that was already built. You fill out a ton of paperwork, they check your financial history, etc.
A construction lender, however, is a bank. And the process isn’t the same. Banks look at different criteria and financial history. They make decisions based on the worthiness of the buyer. They look at you not just as a name on paper, but as a person. Usually they want some skin in the game and are more wary about lending.
Simply put, there are more moving parts and stress in financing new construction. But that’s where we come in.
