Many construction loans require two separate loan closings: once for the construction, and once again for the mortgage. A one-time construction loan allows you to go from the land purchase straight into a permanent mortgage loan and everything in between. With this single loan, you only have one set of documents to sign. This can save you a ton of time and money.
A one time construction loan allows for up to 12 months of build time. You and your builder can take your time to make this house your home.
You will be able to choose the terms of your one time construction loan. Choose a fixed-rate at 15 or 30 years or an adjustable rate mortgage loan.
A down payment on a one-time construction loan can be as low as 3.5% depending on their credit score. A 620 or higher is considered ideal.
With a one-time construction loan, you can expect to close on the loan before the construction begins. This allows your lender to place funds into an escrow account which will pay your builder as needed.
