Get approved for up $3 million to build your dream home.
No need to worry about surprise costs or finding a mortgage loan provider — our friendly, local team will help you apply, qualify a builder, and transition to a permanent mortgage.
Covers the construction cost
Our loan covers costs while your home is being built, so no need to worry about unexpected bills or fees.
You pay interest up-front
Every payment you make during the construction phase goes towards your interest only.
Converts to a permanent mortgage
Once your home is built, your loan converts into a mortgage, and you’ll make monthly payments on your new home.
Meet with a Mortgage Loan Officer
Your MLO will walk you through the pre-approval process and help you complete the entire application. Once approved, we’ll help you qualify and approve the builder of your choice.
Sign the Final Construction Contract
You’ll confirm the design, specs, and price for the home. We’ll also order the Project Review, Construction Underwriting Review, and Appraisal on the home.
Close Your Loan
You’ll finalize all the details with a real estate attorney before signing on the dotted line — then construction begins!
Construction in Progress
As the builder works on your home, our team will distribute the funds to them based on the agreement.
Your New Home is Complete
Congratulations — you’ve officially built the home of your dreams and your construction loan has transitioned into a permanent mortgage. Enjoy!

I’ve been a member of LFCU since I joined USAID in 1987 and I plan to remain a member until I die. LFCU has seen me through overseas assignments when we still did business by cable until the present electronic age. They financed my first car and all three subsequent cars, including one I bought last month. LFCU has seen me through accidents, in both West Africa and the US, lost storage, home B&Es in Budapest (twice), and many other fiascos, and have always been there to give advice and help. My mother became a member and LFCU staff were very helpful when it came time to settle her estate. Always kind and going the extra mile.Mary O. Member
