Can You Get An FHA Loan For Building A House?

My wife and I really would like to build a house using green methods. We would be first time home buyers and I was wondering if you can get an FHA Loan that will allow us to buy land and build a house?

    FHA does not underwrite construction loans. There are several lenders that will issue you a construction loan and once the construction has been completed and your authorization to occupy the property has been issued your loan would then convert to a regular mortgage loan with monthly mortgage payments.

    In this case you should contact a mortgage banker or broker to complete a mortgage loan application that will allow you to have a construction loan. See if they can have this same application to be used as your mortgage loan after the construction has been completed.

    I hope this has been of some use to you, good luck.

    FHA does not offer such a program. You will need a conventional 'construction loan' for funds to build the property, and then get a FHA loan after completion. The closest thing FHA offers is a 203K loan, but that is generally limited to rehab of existing properties.

    You will need to work with a lender who has FHA programs. FHA is just the insurer of the loan. They do not actually provide the money.
