Take note that lender consider financing land riskier than financing a home – this is because it is much, much easier to walk away from a lot without a home on it. Typically, at least 20% down payment is needed and an impeccable credit. It is also a possibility to consider financing your home with a home equity loan or a home equity line of credit if you have enough value in your current home to borrow against it. Start shopping around for where you feel comfortable in securing your financing with.
