Construction Loans

Loans are a form of financing where a bank or financial institution will lend money to a person or business. That money is then repaid over time with interest. Some loans are set with a specific purpose in mind and designed for specific business sectors. Construction loans are designed to be used by developers, builders, investors and consumers for construction projects. Construction projects include, but are not limited to, new builds, remodels, renovations and repairs.Terms of any loan are agreed upon prior to a contract being signed by either party. The terms will include the amount of time required to pay back the lender, interest rates and any stipulations required by the lender. Interest rates are determined by a number of factors like credit worthiness and product, so rates will vary.
