Frequently Asked Questions
Are all New Construction Loans the same?
Just as you wouldn’t expect every contractor or home inspector to be the same, building loan lenders also vary. Who you work with matters. Contact us today to learn how we can help you overcome traditional funding hassles and get you on your way to building dream homes and real estate wealth.
What is the minimum credit score required for a New Construction Loan?
Currently, the minimum score required is 620. Keep in mind that construction loan rates and maximum funding limits are based on a borrower’s creditworthiness. Generally, a better score along with other markers of creditworthiness can help a borrower get better construction loan interest rates and a higher funding amount.
How do I get approved for a New Construction Loan?
New build mortgages are subject to approval based off the borrower’s financial information, as well as the scope of the project. Approval depends on a borrower’s experience, credit score, liquid assets, and net worth. Loan approval also relies on the project’s appraisal value, geographic location, and other underwriting criteria. Loan amounts vary based on loan type, loan-to-value (LTV), the borrower’s creditworthiness, and other risk-based factors.
What experience do I need to secure a New Construction Loan?
For borrowers without real estate experience, exposure limits and their first New Construction loan will be capped at a maximum of $500K. Builders and developers with more experience will qualify for a larger exposure limit and better loan terms.
What property types am I allowed to build?
New Construction loans can fund the acquisition and improvement of non-owner-occupied single-family properties, up to 20 multi-family properties, mixed-use, 2-4 family units, and detached or townhouse-style condos.
What if I want to fix and flip a property?
Fixing and flipping properties can be a wonderful investment opportunity, and we encourage applying for our Exposure Limit, which allows you to do both Fix & Flip and New Construction loans.
Do you calculate LTV or LTC?
The Loan-to-Value (LTV) ratio is based on market value, whereas the Loan-to-Cost (LTC) ratio is calculated based on construction costs. Generally, we use the lesser of the two calculations to determine maximum loan funding.
