Construction Lot & Loans

Lot Loans in Charleston, SC-

When looking to purchase a lot / vacant home site to build a new home be prepared that the mortgage loan terms are considerably different.

Construction Loans in Charleston, South Carolina –

I am pretty certain these rules more than likely apply across the United States, but this is specifically detailed for those living in and around the Low-country of S.C. Construction loans are typically harder to get and slightly more expensive than a traditional purchase money mortgage because there is much more work involved while the property is being constructed. Usually the minimum for down payment is 10-15%. There is always an inherent risk to the bank that the builder miss-calculated the cost to build which adds another element of concern for the bank; thus increasing the cost of the loan. As a rule of thumb it's a little easier to get an approval for a construction loan if you own the lot first. Most home builders in Charleston will want to know that you have your funds in order before beginning the project because they will have to apply for a draw to start phase 1.

Banks in South Carolina providing construction loans will want to see the plans of the home, the resume of the builder, and the build contract break down, among the other items related to your ability to qualify.
