What is the Contruction Loan Process?


The first step is pre-qualification. Visit the Kleberg Bank Mortgage Center and let us help you determine your maximum budget and what type of loan is best for you.

Our experienced loan officer may ask you to bring some information about your employment history, assets and debt, and your income and expenses.


Find a location and select a builder. Then, we will assist you with the application process. After we receive your application and the required documents, such as plans for your home and a contract with your builder, we’ll arrange a meeting with you to discuss loan options.

Once you have applied we will review a Loan Estimate for your permanent financing, which will give you an idea of your monthly payment and how much money you’ll need to bring to closing. The last step in the application process is to order an appraisal.


Unlike many of our competitors, our underwriting staff is local. Once we receive the appraisal, your entire file, including credit and income information, is submitted to the underwriter for review and final loan approval.


When we get final approval, our construction team will provide you with a checklist of things to expect during construction.   Once underwriting is completed you will go to closing at the title company for the construction loan.


You are almost there! Construction begins on your new home. During this time, your builder will make periodic requests for payment from your construction loan. We review progress reports on your home to fund those requests, based on the home’s stages of completion.

During the construction phase you will make interest only payments as the home is being completed based on the amounts you approved for draw. Once all monies have been paid to the contractor we will assist you with your permanent loan.
