Timely stage of construction payments to your contractor ensure the building process stays on schedule. Because Marquette is the only locally headquartered bank, stage of construction inspections and payments are approved and processed here locally by Marquette – not by someone who needs to drive in from out of town.

One Loan, Not Two

Some lenders offer a construction loan upfront then require a mortgage after the home is built, forcing the home buyer to incur the cost of two closings. Marquette requires just one closing for the construction phase and permanent financing. Click the video link to hear how to avoid mistakes when financing your home construction .

“When a builder says a bank’s process is flawless, that says a lot. They deal with this all the time.”

“Marquette is the only bank we refer customers to ---we send all our customers there. Over the years Marquette has proven to be the easiest bank to work with for both our customers and us.”
Chris B.
Marquette Mortgage Customer

“Uncomplicated, Easy. Smooth. When one of our home construction projects is financed by Marquette there is never a hassle ---never a delay. When we complete a stage of construction and ask for a payment draw, the money is normally deposited in our account within 24 hours. That can mean the difference between construction staying on schedule or un-necessary delays.
