CUSTOM HOME CONSTRUCTION LOANS MORTGAGES ST LOUIS HOME BUILDERBy Trisha McConkey, Associated Bank

Associated Bank is here to help you when you’re ready to break ground on your custom with Hibbs Homes. With our interest-only construction loan options, your dream home will quickly become reality at an affordable rate.

How much out-of-pocket money is required to qualify for construction financing?

Our interest-only construction loans make it possible for you to build your home with as little as 5% down* and to roll lot purchase and construction financing all into one loan. Depending on what you qualify for, and what loan product you choose, your initial down payment may be the only expense you have apart from your monthly interest-only payments.

Do I have to sell my existing home in order to qualify?

Timing during any real estate transaction can be tricky, especially when the completion of your new home is dependent upon the sale of your existing home. From Bridge Loans to Interest-only construction loan programs, we’ll help make the home building process as simple as possible.
