Several years ago you needed little or no money down in order to finance the construction of a new home. Today’s lending requirements have drastically changed. Lenders now require a substantial amount down in order to buy a lot and build a new home. A 20-30% down payment is a pretty typical requirement these days. For example, $80,000 or more would be required as a down payment on a $400,000 home.
We strongly recommend talking to a lender as one of your first steps. They can prequalify you and help you determine a budget amount for your new home.
