Construction loans differ to that of a standard outright purchase and settlement of an existing property.

This requires specialist knowledge so before you decide how you want to finance your new build it is important to understand the difference. While normal home loans normally offer a lump sum payment, a construction loan is usually paid in stages as your new build progresses.

When considering a construction loan the key is to talk to a specialist in construction lending before you commit so that you can understand which type of loan is right for you and you wont get caught short when building your home.

Our specialist new build lending partners are highly experienced and can help you find the right loan for your new home. We encourage you to use the online lending calculators to explore just how easy it may be to start the process to building your new dream home.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much deposit do I need?

During the design phase of your home, there may be a pre-consent deposit required to cover draughting costs. This amount is taken off the contract price if you decide to build with your Jennian Homes franchisee. The deposit you'll need is dependent on the type of building contract you choose but is typically between 10-20%. 

For a section: usually 20% of the lands value

Build only: 20% of the builds final value

Turn Key: 10% of the total build from start to finish with payment once build is complete.

Upon signing the contract a deposit of 5% of the contract price to build your home is required for work to commence. These figures are not definite and you will discuss this with your local franchise before entering any contract.
