Loans for Land

Land loans basically work the same way as a standard home loan, except several Mortgage Brokers and Banks have only a 0.1% increased interest rate. This extra 0.1% stays on until a house is constructed on the property. Once constructed, the interest rate reduces on the loan.

House Plans for Land Loans and SubdivisionAlways talk to more mortgage brokers than just your bank. Be skeptical and persistant.

Subdivision - Existing or Planned

When it comes to subdivisions a reputable mortgage broker or a bank will allow you to borrow before the land is subdivided. Keep in mind that the loan is based on the value of the un-subdivided property which means that the land would be worth less than if it was subdivided (1 larger block is worth less than 2 smaller blocks).

You can borrow on the value of two blocks of land once the titles have been issued, which is also when you can borrow on the construction.
