Frequently Asked Questions:
What is a Land Loan?
You can use a Land Loan to finance the purchase of a plot of land. Texell offers land loans that may be used to build a home or for personal recreational use.
What documents do I need when I apply for a Land Loan?
The documents required when applying for a land loan include:
- Valid Govt. Issued ID
- Social Security Card
- Proof of Income (pay stubs, award letters, or retirement statements)
- Asset Statements (last two months)
- Tax Returns (last two years)
- W2s (last two years)
- 1099s (last two years if self-employed)
- Mortgage statements (for any properties owned)
- Homeowners insurance (for any properties owned)
- Survey (for the land to be purchased, if available)
How much can I borrow for a Land Loan?
In Texas, you can borrow up to 80% of the property's fair market value or the purchase price, whichever is less. For example, if the plot of land is worth $85,000, but the purchase price is $80,000, you can borrow up to $64,000 (80% of the $80,000 purchase price).
How long does the land loan process take?
Depending on how quickly Texell receives the appraisal, the land loan process can take 30–60 days.
What is the difference between a Land Loan and a Construction Loan?
You will use a Land Loan to acquire/purchase a piece of land. You will use a Construction Loan to fund the construction of a home, which may include purchasing the land. Texell does not currently offer construction loans. If the construction of your property is not in the immediate future and you just need to acquire the land right now, a land loan may be perfect for you.
Can I use a Land Loan to purchase property for business use?
No, land loans are strictly for personal usage, either for building a home or recreation. If your land purchase is to build commercial property, an SBA 504 loan is the place to start. For more information about SBA loans through Texell.
