Building a new house can mean different things for you and your family. It gives you the opportunity to live in the home that specifically designed for and by you, therefore meeting your every need. However, the construction process can be time-consuming, difficult, and complicated to finance.  Thus, it’s not meant for everyone.

New Construction mortgage programs give borrowers the opportunity to finance the construction of a new property. This form of mortgage is based on properties that have not been built yet.

The mode of operation of a New Construction Mortgage is dictated by how the house is built (whether you’re hiring a contractor, building the home yourself, or buying a newly constructed home).

When you are building a new home, your financing is set up construction through the permanent structure. Therefore, you obtain your mortgage loan before the home is even constructed. The loan is based on the home and builder contract, blueprints and permits to determine the value and duration of the build. Upon the completion of the building process, an appraisal is completed to determine final value of the property. 

What Are The Requirements For New Construction Mortgages?

To apply for a New Construction Mortgage, you need:


  • Detailed proof of employment and income.

  • A qualifying credit history.

  • A signed contract with the builder (if you are building the home yourself, you need copies of quotes on building costs).

  • A copy of the purchase offer for the land that the house will be built on.

  • Plans and house specification.

  • Proof of fire insurance.
