Home Construction Loan differences versus regular purchase loans

Interim home Construction loans are unique because the money from the loan is used to pay for the development of your custom home construction.  A home Construction loan can be used to:

  • construct your custom home from the ground up
  • possibly be used to complete construction on a half-built home you bought out of foreclosure that has never received a certificate of occupancy.
  • for a total remodeling of your home, you would use Home Renovation loan

Terms will depend entirely on the extent of your project. In most interim home construction loans, you pay only interest during the time of development. The Construction phase of your project will have a set time to be complete.

This equity may be applied towards your down payment.  As well as any monies you’ve given to the builder that are credited to you in the builder’s contract may all be applied towards your down payment.

Home Construction Loan SuccessThe largest value of building your own custom home is value.  Now and in the future.  Tract homes are built on a production line basis and many times Quality is not in the job description.  What is in the job description is get the house put together as fast and as cheaply as possible.  While these homes may be safe and try for your family they will not have the fit and finish that you want that meets your personal needs.

Since you are also most probably overseeing the project more closely, so you can make sure the quality is there and most custom home builders have a much higher level of quality and that means more resale value to you if you decide to sell your home.  In the end, a home construction loan may be just the ticket for your dream home.
