Mortgage myths

Don’t let myths about Construction Loans hold you back

Myth #1: Lenders will lend based on what the house will be worth
Not always! Lenders today will lend either the amount of money put into the construction costs or the market value of the home after completion, whichever is less.

Myth #2: You need to own the land before applying for a Construction Loan
Not quite! One of the benefits of a Construction Loan is that buyers can actually get approved before acquiring land.
