How Do Construction Loans work, you might ask?

Overall Process:

  • Builder Approval 
  • Project Approval (appraisal, plans & specs, costs from builder)
  • Borrower Credit Approval
  • Initial Draw at Close (up to 50K) to get a project started and/or reimburse for any materials already purchased

Construction Period

  • Post close welcome call from the construction management company
  • Inspections done as work is put in place, then checks for draws issued to builder and borrower
  • Once work is done, the loan is modified into a standard 30-year fixed loan at present market rates (vs. the interest-only loan in place during construction). Borrowers can pay down the balance on a converted loans in the event other property they owned has been sold in the meantime. No additional closing costs when the loan converts.

Specialized Features

  • Stalled projects
  • Modular construction
  • Major renovations (projects beyond scope of renovation programs)

Remember, Choosing an Experienced Lender is Critical

A construction loan is more complex than a standard mortgage, with more moving parts and more specialized expertise required.
