GIS Will Help You Identify The Types Of Loans And Lenders That Offer The Best Terms For Financing Your Custom Home Or Building Project

Over the years our firm has worked with hundreds of lenders. Lenders often have similar requirements, but lenders also tend to specialize in different types of loans, and our team is familiar with the variety of loan types and the options that might be most beneficial for you. Therefore, we recommend that we visit with you prior to your formal application for funding. We can help you identify the right kind of loan for your situation, and also provide you with the necessary paperwork that the lender is likely going to require in order to receive approval.

Some financial institutions do not offer loans for new construction, remodels or renovation projects. We keep a list of local banks, credit unions, or other lenders and investors willing to provide funding for new construction, remodels, renovations and even on difficult critical area sites.

Evaluate Your Financial Standing And If Necessary, Fix Any Issues That May Be Negatively Affecting Your Credit

Your lender will look at your credit history and your credit score. What they find can impact both whether or not you are approved for a loan and can also affect your loan terms as well as your interest rate. It is best to check your own credit prior to your application and make sure that any issues that are negatively affecting your credit are resolved.

How To Prepare For The Construction Financing Process

Use The Loan To Fund The Build

Once your construction loan is funded, you will be able to make draws from the loan in order to pay for the building project. Your lender may send officials out to inspect the project, or they may require reports regarding the progress of the project. Our detailed and itemized financial reports are what you need to keep your lender in the know regarding your project. Most construction loans only require that you pay interest on the amount withdrawn on the account each month rather than requiring you to pay interest on the entire loan amount. The careful management of cashflow can also make your project run smoother and save you money!
