Is financing available?
We can help direct you to financing institutions to assist you in your purchase and building project. Consult your bank if your purchase is for a second dwelling. Banks typically are more supportive of financing a second dwelling if it is on a year-round public road, which is the case at Kennebec Shores. Also, if you choose to build through a Tarion registered builder, they may take ownership of the lot through the construction process and convey the finished home or cottage to you upon completion, at which time you may obtain traditional financing.
What Are the Township’s Development Charge Costs for New Home Construction?
