The MannMade construction loan process.
- Construction loans are specialized financial products designed to fund the construction or renovation of a residential property. Unlike traditional mortgages, these loans are tailored to cover the expenses of the building process, including materials, labor, and permits.
- There are two primary types of construction loans: construction-to-permanent loans and standalone construction loans. Construction-to-permanent loans convert into a regular mortgage once construction is complete, while standalone loans require refinancing once the project is done.
Construction loans typically require a higher down payment than regular mortgages, often around 20% to 30% of the project’s total cost. The loan-to-value (LTV) ratio, which assesses the loan amount relative to the property’s appraised value, is also considered.
Interest rates for construction loans can vary, but they are typically higher than those for traditional mortgages. This is because they pose a higher risk to lenders due to the uncertain nature of construction projects.
Construction loans operate on a draw process, where funds are disbursed in stages as the project progresses. Borrowers must provide documentation and inspections at each stage to access the funds needed for ongoing construction.
