The MannMade construction loan process.
A construction loan is a short-term financial product providing funds to cover building or renovating a property. These loans typically have a fixed interest rate during construction and then transition to a permanent mortgage once the project is completed.
There are two primary types of construction loans – construction-to-permanent and stand-alone. The former combines the construction and permanent financing into a single loan, while the latter requires two separate loans.
- Most construction loans require a down payment, a percentage of the project’s total cost. The amount varies but usually falls in the 20-25% range.
Construction loan interest rates are typically higher than those for traditional mortgages. They may be variable or fixed, depending on the lender.
Construction loans are disbursed in stages, known as draws, as the project progresses. Borrowers must submit documentation and inspections to receive these funds, ensuring the work is on track.
