Construction Loans

From lot financing to construction loans to the end mortgages, we can help you get the best interest rates in the marketplace. We also provide superior service to ensure that you are completely satisfied. Here is a summary of our Construction Financing programs:

Lot Financing Program

  • 100% Financing Alternative--We will lend up to 100% of the purchase price of the lot if you provide collateral in addition to the lot itself. This allows you to keep your cash invested and working for you while the cost of credit still a bargain.
  • Standard Alternative--For those of you who prefer to invest your cash in the lot at the time of the closing, but who do not wish to pledge assets beyond the lot, we will lend you up to 65% of the appraised value of the lot at the time of closing. Contact loan officer for details on unimproved property.
  • Interest Rate--Your interest rate will reflect the loan structure that you choose from the two above described options. Either way, your interest rate will be very competitive. Please see the bank for rate and disclosure information.
  • Term--We will be flexible with your loan term needs.
  • Interest Rate--We will bill you for interest.
  • Principal--We will bill you at maturity for the loan's principal. You can, however, pre-pay the principal without penalty, at any time.
  • Contact Loan officer for further details.

Construction Financing Program

  • 100% Financing Alternative--Similar to the lot financing choice, we will finance up to 100% of your new construction cost if you pledge assets in addition to the lot/home package. This allows you to keep your cash invested and working for you while the cost to borrow money is still a good deal.
  • Standard Alternative--If you elect to invest your cash in the lot at the time of the closing, but do not wish to pledge assets beyond the lot, we will lend you up to 75% of the appraised completion value of the lot/home package.
  • Interest Rate--We will bill you for interest.
  • Fees--There will be a title company lien waiver exam fee (this protects you and us from contractor liens), an appraisal fee, and customary recording costs. Other fees may apply.
  • Term--We will structure your loan term to meet the timing needs of your particular project.
  • Contact a Loan officer for further details.
