Construction loan lenders in VA

kotenaJune 27, 2012

hello

we are at the very beginning of the process. We are thinking to build a house. Reading here and on other sources I figured the first step would be to pre-qualify for a construction loan. Maybe someone knows specific lenders in VA where I can call and get consultation?

Here is our situation. Basically right now we have a small rambler that we bought in 2009, upgraded (roof, paint, floors, HVAC, deck and porch). We would either build on our land or buy new property with a house for demolition. We live in the area where there are a lot of little 1950 houses, that are quickly being demolished and new houses built. The only reason I am hesitant to build on the lot that we already have is that we could likely make about $100K on this house if we sell it, but I am afraid to sell it and then not be able to buy new land. I guess I need to talk to the lender to see how they come with approvals, what they look for as far as equity etc.

Please call Fulton Bank.
They have been great to work with in the Central VA area.
