Rates Plummet
All major lenders have agreed to reduce their rates immediately with the Reserve Bank cut. So far ANZ, Suncorp, AMP, CBA, Heritage and Westpac have all dropped their rates. We expect more lenders to announce soon.

Fixed Rates Less Popular
Many observers claim that we have reached the top of the rate cycle, it's time to be careful not fixing for long periods. Break fees on fixed rate loans can be prohibitive when rates are falling.

>> How does a Construction Loan Work?

Building Construction

You may choose to go for a house and land package to have your perfect home rather than buying an established property. There are many advantages of doing so but you will need;

  • A fixed price contract from a licensed builder for the construction
  • Council approved plans and specifications of the proposed house
  • A copy of builders current insurance policies

    On presentation of the above, the building project is valued before loan approval and monitored through its stages by the lender;
  • Tentative value of your completed project is estimated
  • Lender’s valuer monitors building progress and confirms the completion of each construction milestone, while the lender progressively pays the builders invoiced claims
  • Receiving builder’s invoices along with a request for funds at each major stage, your lender manages the financing of the project. The major stages of a housing construction finance are typically;
    • Preparing concrete slab or timber flooring stage
    • When framework is complete
    • Once you can lock up your property
    • On full completion of your project

    Upon completion, the valuer confirms the completion of construction of your new home checking that the construction has been completed in accordance with the requirements of the fixed-price building contract for the lender to approve and pay the last invoice claim to your builder.

    How do we help you with Building Construction Loans?

  • Maintaining services to you after settlement.

    More Detail on Building Construction Loans

    Choosing from our lenders, it is possible to borrow up to 100% of the land value and 100% of Construction Cost (No Deposit Finance) including land purchase cost depending on your location. It is possible to structure the required finance in several different methods; as a house and land package, as land purchase delayed settlement and followed by a construction loan, or as simultaneous settlement. Although the interest rate varies across our lenders depending on the structure of the loans especially during the progress payments phase, we can negotiate interest rate discounts using our relationship with the banks. Construction loans are also normally set up as interest only to reduce the financial burden during the construction stage.

    Did you know that we can arrange your bank pre approval for a house and land loan before you even choose the land or the home to build on it?

    When you decide to build your home we apply for a construction loan by presenting a fixed price tender to obtain a Conditional Approval and we provide copies of the council approved plans and the fixed price building contract to obtain your Formal Approval.

    If you already have a mortgage on your land or we arrange this for you so that you can buy and settle on the land first, our lenders will base the value of the whole package on the land value plus the cost to build the house when we apply for the construction loan. Some lenders will let you borrow based on an estimate of the resale value of your completed home.

    When the construction of your home is complete, you can have your new home revalued and based on market conditions at the time, you may be able to refinance or increase your loan amount using any increase in your equity.

    What can I include in a Construction Loan?
    It is possible to include the cost of some extras including fencing, pool, landscaping, separate garage or garden shed construction, pergola and rain water tank in a building contruction loan. This can be done by obtaining individual supplier quotes and providing them to the bank or more simply packaging them within your fixed price building contract.
