Understanding Construction Loans

  • Home building loans typically have interest-only payments while your home is under construction. These payments then convert to a permanent loan with a fixed or adjustable rate depending on your needs.
  • When you sit down with our mortgage team, be sure to have a construction time table, detailed plans, and a budget for your home

Additional Features

  • The equity in your lot may be used as part of your construction loan down payment
  • Financing is available up to 95% loan-to-value based on conventional loan amounts. Your loan-to-value is calculated by dividing the loan balance by the value of your property.
  • Jumbo products are available
  • Construction disbursements (draws) are processed locally
