Construction loansHi,We are currently looking to buy a lot and build on it. We have been working on the price of the lot and also found a decent builder (including checking background, past projects, BBB, etc). We have 20% to 25% cash to put down on the cost of the land + construction.- We would like to purchase the land cash, then use it as down payment on the construction loan. This would enable us to get a better, faster deal on the land. Is this sensible?- Does anyone know any construction loan specialists in the Marietta, GA area?We've done a lot of research and think we've got a lot of bases covered, but struggle to find independent information on the whole process (i do not consider a real estate agent or builder independent, as they have vested interests)Many thanks!October 31 2011 - Marietta11YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
