Can one acquire a VA Construction Loan oppose to aquiring a Constructional Loan and Coverting it to a VA loan at closing?

There are no VA construction loans. I would attempt to get a builder to construct the home under a standard purchase contract and pay him off when the certificate of occupancy is issued.

Although there is a VA construction loan product, finding a lender willing to do one is near impossible. Understand that VA does not "Lend" money. They only insure loans against default.. the lenders, or those with the $$$, will oftentimes have additional guidelines above what VA calls for.. it's these "overlay's" that makes lending rules different one lender to another.. and for most, 100% financed VA construction loans are at the peak of what's considered a "Risky Loan".. i'm not saying it's impossible to find, but it will be near impossible.. I'm a Broker here in Scottsdale AZ and I only lend in Arizona. If you or someone you know is looking for financing options, feel free to contact me or pass along my information. William J.
