Is land loan considered as Real Estate loan?

Is loan obtained for purchasing a land is considered as the same as home loan from fico stand point of view?

Re: Is land loan considered as Real Estate loan?

Good question.

I would think that it would depend on the particular financing instrument you use.

For example, if you go through a mortgage company to get it, and the financing instrument IS a mortgage, then I assume FICO would treat it as a home.

On the other hand if you went to your banker, and took out a loan with the land as collateral, I assume using the same logic that it would be treated as a personal loan, or maybe even a HELOC, or LOC.

Why don't you call up any title company and ask them?

My real estate expertise is long gone.
