Building your dream - Construction loans from your Summer Hill mortgage broker

Start your home loan journey today

If you're looking to build a new home or complete a major renovation, then your finance needs will be significantly different compared to buying an established property.

How are construction loans different?

Construction loans are a specialised lending option for home builders or renovators to help them through the process - these types of loans can either be construction loans specifically, or they can be home loans that have a construction facility.

The difference is, where you typically receive a lump sum of the loan amount at settlement with normal home loans, construction loans are paid out in periodic progress payments from the lender at different stages of construction.

Progress payments

As a guide, there are usually up to five progress payments at different stages including slabs poured, frame up, brickwork complete, lock up and practical completion.

Expert mortgage broker, Guy Lawrence and our team in Sydney's Inner West can help you determine what construction loan is the right one for you if your dream is to build your own home or complete a major renovation.
