Get Financing for Land

Research is really the number one key when it comes to finding great rates for land and lot mortgages. One of the best rates in the country rate now is lending to 38 of the states with 80% loan to value ratio and 3% interest rate; this is the type of find you have to jump on when they come along. These figures are certainly not average. Today the average loan to value ratio is closer to 60% with interest rates in the range of 6-7%. This is a significant jump from the numbers posted above and in some cases these higher percentages can make or break your dreams of buying your own lot and building your own home.

In order to be approved for one of these hard to get mortgages you will have to have several requirements met. First, you must have a satisfactory income to debt ratio of no more than 45%, the ability to come up with the down payment, 20% if you can find a good lender with good rates but this can be up to 40% in some cases and a credit score in the 700s to qualify without any problems. Also as a first time buyer it is important to note the other costs associated with your new purchase:

• Closing costs of about 1-2% of the entire loan amount
• Appraisal fees ($400-$600)
• Title fees

Many first time buyers are not aware of these additional costs and it can really harm your bank account when you do not budget accordingly.

In the past it was a profitable market to take vacant land and flip it but after the real estate market crash this business has become obsolete. Now is the time for home builders to find the lots of their dreams and begin building.
