FAQs

  • Is the process for getting a land loan the same as a home mortgage?

    There are similarities but the products for land loans are specific and shorter in term than most mortgage loans.                                                         

  • Does a land loan have to be paid in full prior to a construction loan?

    No, but the remaining balance is paid off at closing either from the loan or from other funds prior to beginning construction.                            

  • Can a lot purchase be included as part of a construction loan?

    Yes, it would be paid in full as a withdrawal from the construction loan funds.

  • Are there differences in residential land loans and land for development?

    Yes.  The ECU Mortgage Department can assist you with residential personal use land loans only.  For land loans regarding development, please refer to the ECU Business Lending Department.
