Our construction loan option allows you to combine your construction financing and mortgage into a single loan and only pay closing costs once. We can provide information on the ins and outs of the process, when payments start, and more. Reach out to any of our mortgage lenders for additional details.

If your dream home doesn’t exist yet, consider a lot loan from Citizens Bank. You can finance the purchase of a plot of land and start planning your build without the time pressure of a construction loan.


The Secure And Fair Enforcement For Mortgage Licensing Act Of 2008 (SAFE Act) was enacted to improve the accountability and tracking of residential mortgage loan originators,  enhance consumer protection, reduce fraud, and provide consumers with easily accessible  information regarding the professional background of mortgage loan originators. Pursuant to the  SAFE Act, the mortgage loan originators are required to obtain a unique identifier through the  Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System and Registry. The SAFE Act requires mortgage loan  originators (and banks) to provide these unique identifiers to consumers upon request.
