If you are building from the ground up or undergoing a renovation on your existing home, you may consider a construction loan versus conventional financing. In general, a construction loan pays out to the builder or contractor in phases over the course of the project (rather than directly to the lender). This makes lenders more comfortable with the lending process, ensuring financing and construction is moving forward. After completion, your loan can be converted to a mortgage of your choosing. Construction loans typically require a strong credit score and a 20% to 30% down payment. There are a few different construction loan products, and a mortgage professional can guide you through the process.
