The acquisition of a construction loan supports development, renovation, or the expansion of personal properties. Like other loans, this financing process is affected by interest rates and market conditions, but is a shorter term loan for construction projects.

Construction loans usually require a higher down payment of 25-30%. Lenders must be assured that the project will be completed within a certain time frame and that all the builders are licensed properly.
A construction loan is short term financing, which usually lasts no longer than a year. A traditional term loan lasts much longer and can be paid off over lengths of 30 years in some cases. A construction loan is meant to provide financing while a project is being built, whether it is a commercial or residential building. The building is then sold and the loan can be paid off.
