New Construction Loans
New construction loans are special, short-term loans that allow you to pay builders throughout the construction of your new home. Once construction is complete, you refinance the total sum of the new construction loan using a regular mortgage. As a result, you’ll have one monthly payment for your newly built home. The main benefits of new construction loans include:
- Built-in equity when refinancing your construction loan to final terms vs. going through a purchase transaction with a builder or individual
- The line of credit you receive to pay for the home as it is built
- Only getting charged interest on the amount you have borrowed

What documents will I need?
During the new construction loan process, you’ll need to provide:
- Current driver’s license or another form of photo identification
- Purchase contract, if applicable
- Most recent:
- Two years of tax returns, including W-2s
- Two months of bank statements with images of checks & deposits
- Two months of pay stubs or payroll information with year-to-date totals
- Retirement and/or investment statement
*Note, if you’re self-employed, more documentation may be required.
Tips when building a home:
- Don’t take on more debt or loans without talking to your loan officer first because this can disqualify you from being able to close your home loan.
- Don’t change jobs or careers while in the home loan process, unless you’re relocating to a new job with guaranteed employment.
- Get documents to your loan officer in a timely manner because the loan process cannot move forward until we receive the required documents.
- Don’t spend your down payment.
- Make sure you’re able to document any large deposits to your accounts if other than payroll (gift money, tax returns, large cash deposits, etc.).
- Ask questions, that’s what we’re here for!
