Construction Loan Highlights

Construction Loan Overview

  1. One Time Close/All-in-One Construction to Permanent Loans – 30 year loan term, fixed for the first 5, 7 or 10 years. Allows you to “Lock-In” a single low rate before construction begins.
  2. Finishd Value or “As Completed” Loans – Loan amounts are based on the finished value of the completed project and not on the Project Cost itself. This means significantly less “cash out-of-your-pocket” and more toward covering 100% of your construction costs.
  3. Pre-Start Construction Loans – Loans for projects already under construction or partially complete projects.
