What is a Construction and Land Loan?
A construction and land loan is a short-term loan that finances the price of the land and the construction costs to build on the property. Similar to other hard money loans in Florida, a portion of the funds are used for closing costs while the rest is held escrow. As for the construction funds, they are distributed in portions from completed and inspected phase-to-phase projects in the building process. This is done to make sure the project stays on track and within budget.
