Finance Tips:

In most cases Banks have no trouble lending for land and houses as it a secure investment for them.

The security of a property is ideal for the bank to lend for, much better than personal loans and cars.

However, the bank likes to have you put up all your savings as deposit. The more you put up the better for the bank in case something goes wrong in the future.

You are best to put the bare minimum up as a deposit on the land when your owner building and hold as much as you can for the construction.

“Hold onto your Cash!”

The banks do not see shipping containers as a good risk for them, as they are hard to repossess and hard to resell in a foreclosure situation. I know this is a hard way to look at it but banks look at it that way.

So that works if you are buying the land, however if you already have the land it is a different situation altogether.

If you have purchased the land earlier you can use the equity in the land to get a new loan. In most cases, you will need to refinance and this will help you get the money for the construction. The presentation of the application is the key to getting finance so you are best to talk to a finance broker especially one that knows about owner builder loans.

Finance Brokers – Here! There! & Everywhere!!

Finance brokers, Finance brokers, they seem to be everywhere, every man and his dog seems to be one or have one they know and recommend.

My experience with finance brokers is, when they are good they are very good, when they are bad, they are very bad!!

Let’s face the facts, the difference between getting the home you want and just getting a home is how much can be borrowed.
