What Is A Construction-To-Permanent Loan?

Construction-to-Permanent loans combine the financing of a lot purchase, construction expenses, and a permanent mortgage. Benefits range from saving time and money with only one closing cost to reducing stress by securing an interest rate that won’t change during the construction phase. Additional benefits of Construction-to-Permanent loans include:

  • One time closing cost

  • Only need to qualify for one loan

  • Lock-in interest rate

  • Affordable, interest-only payments during construction

How Do Home Construction-to-Permanent Loans Work?

Application PhaseAfter you have all the plans drawn out and the builder approved, it is time to fill out an application for a construction-to-permanent loan. You will need to provide financial information, a copy of the construction agreement with your builder, and specified cost of your proposed home including options, upgrades, and value of the land. If applicable to your build, a land contract must be provided as well as a copy of the floor plan and deed to the lot.
Construction Phase: When constructions begins, the loan is formed into a construction line of credit that is drawn upon as the construction progresses. Throughout the construction process, the contractor will submit an invoice to the lender who needs to ensure it is up to code. Once approved, more payments will be distributed to the contractor. It typically takes six to twenty-four months for the construction phase to be fully executed.
Completion PhaseIn order to be officially considered complete, the project must be inspected and needs to receive its permanent certificate of occupancy from the municipal building authority. During final home inspection, you will create a “punch list” of items the contractor must complete before releasing final payment. Once all certifications are earned and final construction payments are made, the construction loan will convert into a permanent mortgage.
