Construction Loans with Western Highland Mortgage - Lake Tahoe

Construction Loans


What is a Construction Loan?

It is one which finances the construction of a home, provided in numerous disbursements as progress is made. These loans are interest only while construction is being done; usually over a period of 6-36 months. Once finished, it is up to the borrower(s) to convert the loan into a 30-year conventional mortgage with a different lender.

  • Spec or Owner-occupied

  • Lot is owned free and clear
