This single close construction loan program is also the permanent financing. It is a 7/1 Adjustable Rate Mortgage with the initial interest rate fixed seven years. After the first 84 months, this loan adjusts annually for the next 23 years. The loan has a 2% annual cap, a 2% first adjustment cap, a 6% life cap over start rate, and a 2.5% margin over the 1 Year LIBOR Index. The construction period is at least 12 months, during which time the loan is interest only on the amount drawn, at a great low rate of only 2.0% over the 1 month LIBOR. This loan has no prepayment penalty.
The maximum loan amount is based on the “as completed” appraised value of the property, without regard to total project costs. The appraisal will be done from the plans, and a value will be determined that represents what this house would be worth in today’s market if already completed as planned.
