Find Your Perfect Construction Loan Solution
Let's discuss your construction loan needs. We’re here to help.
Borrowing to Build
These types of mortgages work a little differently from standard home loans. Construction home loans are generally more complex as they involve multiple ‘progress payments,’ also known as loan drawdowns.
Instead of your lender providing the full amount at once, they’ll release funds throughout your building journey. The funds will be issued to your builder once they have completed each stage, in line with your agreed contract. This ensures your build is completed to schedule and in agreement with the signed building plans.
Residential construction loans generally have interest-only repayments throughout the build phase and then revert to P&I once the property is completed. Also, you’ll only pay interest on the total loan amount that’s been released, which means your repayments will be lower in the interest-only period or the earlier stages of the build phase.
Construction Loan Pre-approval
If you’re looking to sign a fixed price building contract sometime soon, it’s recommended to apply for a construction loan pre-approval. A pre-approval is a written confirmation from a bank stating how much money they are willing to lend you through progress payments.
Getting pre-approved for finance helps you understand your budget, and boosts your confidence when signing a contract. We always ensure the process is as fast as possible, so you can start looking at house and land options sooner.
If you’re looking to complete major renovations on your home or investment property, you have a few different loan options. Depending on how much cash is required, you could refinance and access existing equity to fund the renovation. This option is very straightforward and won’t require construction finance.
If you don’t have enough equity in your home, you’ll most likely need a construction loan. For the bank to lend you the required funds, they’ll need a signed building contract and a valuation showing the future property value once the renovations are complete. This will allow you to borrow against any equity increase in the property.
Our team will explain all of your available options and calculate exactly how much you can borrow and get through progress payments. We can also recommend a property valuer and order the required valuation on your behalf.
