Your next step is to complete a full application.
A two-time construction loan requires two closing dates – and two separate loans. You must get approved for both a construction loan as well as a regular mortgage loan. The first loan is closed right before construction starts, and the second when it ends. A two-time construction loan can often save a borrower thousands, even with double the closing costs of a one-time construction loan.
Because you obtain two separate loans, you are not limited on time for your home construction project. At the initial closing, you will discuss a timeline and other terms with your builder.
A two-time construction loan allows for reduced interest rates. The construction loan is refinanced into a mortgage loan which insures that you will receive the lowest interest rate available to you.
With a two-time construction loan, you are free to make changes to your loan during the life of the project. Need more money for unexpected issues? No problem.
Your two loans can come from two different lenders. While it is typical to stick with the same lender, you may be able to find lower rates with another one. Be sure to shop around for both loans!
