What is a acreage loan

Acreage loans refer to loans that are specifically designed for the purchase or financing of land or acreage. Acreage typically refers to a large area of land, often measured in acres, and these loans are used for various purposes such as agricultural development, real estate investment, or recreational use.

Things to consider getting your acreage loan

  •  Land size – The size of the land is a significant factor to consider when seeking a home loan for land purchases, as it will determine the required deposit for securing the funds.The borrowing limits may differ based on the lender. In certain cases, you may be able to borrow up to 95% of the property’s value if the land measures up to 11 hectares. If you are interested in buying a larger block of land, it is typically required to have a minimum deposit of 20%.
  •  Land Location – The location of the land you are interested in purchasing is an important consideration in securing your funds, as it will affect the assessment process including access and zoning regulations.One may consider a block of land in a capital city or regional center that has sealed roads and proper road access for standard vehicles more favourable compared to land in remote locations without road access. Understanding the zoning regulations for your block of land is crucial in order to confirm its suitability for residential use.
  •  It the Land registered or unregistered – Before buying land, make sure it’s registered because lenders won’t provide funds for unregistered land. Registered land is ready for building, with all services connected and road infrastructure complete.
  •  Intention to build – Having the intent to build on your land can be helpful in securing a land loan, but it is not necessary to have immediate plans. Lenders consider it a higher risk when there is no intention to build on the land compared to a borrower who plans to build within a few years of owning the land.
  •  Land purpose – To qualify for a vacant land loan, the property must be used for personal or investment purposes, not for farming. You can use your land as a hobby farm, but it may generate little income.
