What is a Construction Loan?

A construction loan is specific loan that caters for property owners wishing to build or renovate on land they already own. Construction loans are progress based. So, rather than receiving the full loan at once (like with usual home loans), you’ll receive it in steps throughout the stages of construction.

These progress steps are called progress draws. You will only pay interest on the amount you have currently drawn. So, if you have only drawn $200,000 out of a $350,000 loan you will only pay interest on the $200,000. Once your house is complete and all the steps of the draws complete, you will begin paying full principal and interest payments. This saves you money while you build.
