Building a New Home

Obtaining the right construction loan for you to build a new home requires some expertise from your Mortgage Broker. At Finance Empire Australia, we have extensive expertise in construction loans in New South Wales. We understand the intricacies involved in financing the construction of a new home or significant renovations.
A Residential Construction Loan is specifically designed to assist individuals in building their dream homes or undertaking substantial renovations on existing properties. Unlike traditional home loans, which are dispersed in a lump sum, construction loans are disbursed in stages to align with the progress of construction.

At Finance Empire Australia we recognise that each construction project and each borrower’s financial situation is unique. Therefore, we offer a range of Residential Construction Loan options that can be tailored to meet the specific requirements of the project and the borrower’s financial circumstances.

Building a New Home

Throughout the construction period, the lender disburses funds to the builder in stages to cover the costs of materials and labour as construction progresses. This staged disbursement ensures that funds are used efficiently, and construction progresses according to plan, minimising the risk of overruns or delays.

During the construction phase, borrowers typically make interest-only payments on the amount drawn down from the loan. This helps borrowers to manage cash flow during the construction period, as borrowers are not required to make principal repayments until the property is completed.

Once construction is complete and the property has been inspected and approved, the loan may be converted to principal and interest repayments. Alternatively, depending on the borrower’s preferences and financial situation, the loan may be retained as interest-only for a period of time.

Navigating the complexities of construction loans requires expertise and a thorough understanding of the construction process and financing options available. As your Home Loan Partner in Maitland, we can guide you through the entire process, from selecting the right loan product to ensuring a smooth transition to principal and interest repayments upon completion.
