New Construction

From groundbreaking to housewarming, Bremer Bank has the home construction lending expertise to help move your project along smoothly. We’ll put together a construction loan package to meet the specific needs of your project.

When you begin to build a new home, you can estimate how long the project will take and what the costs will be, but you won’t know the final bill until everything is complete. A construction loan allows you the ability to make interest only payments during the building phase of your home. During this construction phase you will draw funds from the loan to pay contractors for their work. You will work closely with your Bremer mortgage loan officer to determine the loan terms and how the construction draw process works.

We start by taking time to get to know you and understand your goals. When you partner with Bremer Bank, you benefit from more than 60 years of financial strength, local decision-making, long-term relationships, and a comprehensive line of products and services.

  • Convenient: Option for one application, one closing for construction and end loan
  • Simple: Dedicated construction team focused on offering an efficient draw process with 72-hour turnaround on most draws and smooth closings
  • Secure: Ability to commit to an interest rate for up to 180 days.
  • Personal: Bremer offers a one-stop shop for the entire construction process, which means you only need to work with one lender during the term of the construction loan.
  • Customized: We are able to put together a flexible construction loan package tailored to meet your needs.
