Common Questions on
Construction Loans & New Build Financing
Is it harder to get a mortgage for a new build?
This depends on your personal circumstances. Securing a mortgage for a new build can involve greater documentation and valuation requirements for lenders, however gaining approval can be just as straightforward as a standard home loan.
In fact, construction loans can actually be easier for some given that many lenders only have a 5% deposit requirement for new build loans.
What percent deposit is required for new build loans?
Depending on the lender and your personal circumstances, it is possible to put down a deposit of only 5% when financing new builds
Ask our team about how this can work for you.
Can you get 100% financing on a construction loan?
Generally speaking, no. Many lenders have a minimum deposit requirement of at least 5% of the construction loan. While you cannot a secure a construction loan with no cash or assets to put towards the purchase, it is a possibility if you have a guarantor that is willing to provide a guarantee supported by a property with equity. This can add an additional layer of complexity in securing your loan.
