No $ down VA construction

Answer #1

How about a no money down VA loan, but buy a home that is already built? You can still buy a newly built home this way. Otherwise, start saving for your downpayment while you continue to look for your land & county permits, , & hire someone to draw up your plans.
With a construction loan, you will need a minimum of 10% down. Most lenders require 20%, but I know one of these loan officers to the right has one that will let you put 10% down. A no money down construction loan doesn’t exist..
Good luck..!

Hello and thank you for your inquiry. It is very unlikely any lender or bank would consider a 100% VA construction loan currently. If you had some assets to use as a down payment, or if you had equity in a currently owned property, that equity could be used as collateral during the build phase. If you do own a property with equity it would be required that this home be sold at the end of the build period and that equity be used in the permanent loan.

I hope this helps.
