Many mortgage lenders also now require a pre-construction appraisal with any new construction home before approving a loan. This ensures the property is worth the amount of the loan and the lender will recap its money. Most, if not all homes built with the aid of construction financing in today’s market require a pre-construction appraisal. The appraised value should reflect what the property would be worth if it existed already and was built as planned.
