Everyone Wins with a Conforming One-Time-Close Loan:

  • Borrowers:
    • With a Conforming OTC Loan, unlike a traditional two-step construction loan, the borrower doesn’t need to re-qualify for the “take-out” loan upon completion of the construction
    • With a typical two-time construction loan, the borrower must qualify for the construction loan, the take-out loan, and when the home is almost completed as the original borrower documentation and credit reports have expired
    • With a Conforming OTC Loan, unlike a traditional Construction-To-Perm loan, borrowers eliminate the cost of refinancing their interim financing loan
    • Interest rate is locked prior to the loan closing, for the life of the loan; thus, eliminating interest rate risk
    • During the construction process the borrower is only responsible for making interest only payments on the loan, which has an interest rate as low as .50% over the note rate
    • The loan is fully in place prior to construction
    • Upon completion of the construction project the loan is modified to a fully amortized principal and interest payment over 15 or 30 years
  • Contractors, Builders, Retailers:
    • Obtain the security of knowing that the borrower’s permanent loan will not only be approved, but is closed on prior to starting construction
    • The Builder/Retailer can obtain staged funded draws without having to draw on their own credit lines, thus eliminating their interest costs
    • Based on the scope of the project builders can obtain between 3 to 12 draws during the construction process
    • Builders no longer use their credit lines to fund a construction project
