Construction Finance

This solution is aimed at providing funding to real estate developers for project acquisition and construction cost against project sales receivables. The loan is project & developer specific towards completion of residential projects. A short-term loan used to finance the building of a home or another real estate project. The builder or home buyer takes out a construction loan to cover the costs of the project before obtaining long-term funding. Because they are considered fairly risky, construction loans usually have higher interest rates than traditional mortgage loans.
Construction loans are usually taken out by builders or home buyers who are custom-building their own home At a minimum, most lenders require a 20% down payment on a construction loan, and some require as much as 25%. To gain approval for a construction loan, you’ll need to provide the lender with a comprehensive list of construction details (also known as a “blue book”) and prove you have a qualified builder involved in the project. Rarely found online, construction loans are usually offered by local credit unions or regional banks. Because local banks are familiar with the housing market in their area, they are generally more comfortable making home construction loans to borrowers in their community. If you intend to act as your own general contractor or build the home with your own hands, you will likely need to take out a variant of this type of loan called an owner-builder construction loan.
