6.5% and it will be land loan. I couldn't find any banks with good rates for anything over 3 acres.

I'm pretty sure LA Land Bank would do something like that.

Guaranty Bank In Zachary does lot loans.

0 down
Interest only payments but you have to build on it within a year
If you don't, they require 10%

Yea land loans are higher. E-Federal credit union was 15 years at 6% about 5 years ago when I got mine. They were the lowest I found at the time.

Do you have equity in your current home? We took out a HELOC to buy our lot. This way the interest is deductible since the actual loan is on your house. The rate is probably better too.

Probably have about $30000 in equity . Not near enough to cover the cost of the land. I have to 20% down payment. Just trying to see what institutions where giving as far as interest rates.

re: Looking for a Lot Loan


why are banks so strict on lending to purchase land when land is your safest investment?

Because land is just like a boat loan, it's the first thing that goes when something goes bad



Word through the grapevine is Dow is offering arm land loans, rates in the fours and lower


Pretty smart of them, most everyone is know is 6-7

I work for a bank that offers land loans, up to 15 years and up to 100% financing depending on price and credit. Rates range from 6.75%-8.75%
