What is a construction loan, and how does it differ from a traditional mortgage?

A construction loan is specifically designed to finance the building of a new home or major renovations. Unlike a traditional mortgage where you receive the full loan amount upfront, with a construction loan, funds are typically distributed in stages as the project progresses.

What are the requirements for obtaining a construction loan?

Requirements for a construction loan may include a construction plan, a strong credit score, a down payment, and proof of income. Lenders may also assess the value of the project and the borrower’s ability to repay the loan.

Some of the more specific lists include: 

  • 20% down (can include land equity)
  • 12-month interest-only construction period
  • No limit on the number of draw requests
  • General contractor NOT required*
  • Requires membership


How long is the repayment period for a construction loan?

The repayment period for a construction loan can vary but is typically shorter than a traditional mortgage. It often ranges from six months to a few years, during which time the borrower makes interest-only payments. Once the construction is complete, the loan may be converted into a traditional mortgage or paid off in full.
