Building a home is one of the most exciting yet intimidating projects you’ll ever experience; the construction loan and assembly of a new home from the ground up in Georgia entails thousands of details, numerous decisions, and multiple contractors and subcontractors to do their part in making your dream home become a reality. Over the past several decades, BankSouth has perfected the ability to work with our homeowner customers, their builders, realtors, and subcontractors to bring it all together.
We help from the first conceptual drawing and blueprint through the foundation, framing, and finishing with our construction loan management team. We’ll ensure that you have the best construction loan financing solution to suit your needs and help guide you through every layer of detail as your home’s construction progresses. When you wrap up construction, your Relationship Manager will guide you into a permanent mortgage that meets your needs perfectly.
We use industry-leading software to give you online access to the progress of your build. As construction progresses, you can approve the next draw against funds to keep the build on schedule.
Our expert construction financing team works with the progress inspectors, builders, and subcontractors to ensure that draw payments are made in a timely and efficient manner for you while providing you real-time access to review the progress.
Once your build is complete to nearing completion, our team of construction financing experts will help you determine the best options for your permanent mortgage.
