Land Lot Loans

A lot loan is a mortgage secured by land with the intention of building a residence. Once a house is built and suitable for occupancy, a permanent mortgage loan replaces the lot and construction financing. Our lot loans are not eligible for “raw land” purchases considered unsuitable for residential development.
