I want to build my dream home and need a mortgage
With a construction mortgage, you have a mortgage amount from which you can draw funding during predetermined construction stages. These advances are made on the basis of cost-to-complete, i.e. the amount is based on how much you need to complete the construction of your home. This amount is given to you at certain stages, or draws, which are granted at certain stages of completion.
Topics to be covered:
What if I want to buy bare land and then build?
What if I own the land already?
What do lenders require in order to approve a construction-draw mortgage application?
What is the typical draw schedule used by lenders?
