The MannMade construction loan process.

  • Construction loans are short-term, typically one-year loans designed to fund the construction or renovation of a property. They differ from traditional mortgage loans as they focus on the building phase rather than long-term ownership.

  • During the construction phase, borrowers receive funds in installments, known as “draws,” as the project progresses. These draws are used to pay contractors, suppliers, and other construction-related expenses.
  • There are two primary types of construction loans: construction-to-permanent and stand-alone construction loans. Construction-to-permanent loans transition into traditional mortgages after construction, while stand-alone loans require separate permanent financing.

  • Lenders typically require a solid credit score, detailed construction plans, a down payment, and a qualified builder to approve construction loan applications.

  • Construction loans often have variable interest rates and require interest-only payments during construction. Once construction is complete, the loan converts to a permanent mortgage with a fixed interest rate and regular principal and interest payments.
