A Land Loan Means You Can Start From Scratch
If you have your eye on a nice piece of raw land or a vacant lot that’s just waiting to be revitalized, then a land loan could be the answer for you.
A land loan gives you a blank sheet of paper to write your dreams on. Most often, we don’t need the land or lot to have power, well, or septic systems in place. You can even use an ACU land loan to refinance your existing loan.
Enjoy these benefits with all America’s Credit Union land loans, loans for vacant land, and lot loans:
Buy raw land or a vacant lot of up to 20 acres with ACU.
Build your future home when you’re ready – ideally within 5 years.
Lock in a low interest rate for an affordable monthly payment.
