How does this work?

I owe $30,000 for my house, I want to tear it down and build another one. My question is do I have to pay the balance, or will they add it to the new loan?

  • I'm not sure. I would think that if they valued your land at $30,000 or if they think the appraised value of your home once complete would exceed the value of the loan to build it, you wouldn't have to pay the balance off first.

  • You can refinance, yes. This is all stuff your loan agent can help you with.

  • Just treat your lender like your partner and go ask them what the procedure is.
