How does an Appraisal Work with a Down Payment on a Building Loan

Steve,In general, your downpayment for a construction loan is 20% of the price.  It appears they are asking you for 20% od the appraised value (i.e. $28,000) and I don't understand why (maybe as a precaution for an overrun in the budget, which is not uncommon)Hope that helps.Regards,

Does my wife need to pay tax if she gives me fund as a gift for down payment?

I recommend you talk to your Tax advisor.  You can also ask your lender, many times that can give you initial guidance of what they would allow as money for downpayment coming from gifts.
