I’m also a Custom Home Builder, and although I don’t take on many outside projects, you still get my overall experience as part of my loan service and I will work with your builder to keep things moving forward.
I believe myself to be most qualified Construction Loan Officer in the west and am a former Firefighter/Paramedic.
* 20% down – Up to 1.5mil loan amount, making $1,850,000 the maximum TAC. You can always put more down to increase the TAC but the loan amount must be 1.5mil or less. 720 score.
Example: 80% LTV (20% down) is based on lot purchase price plus cost of construction. i.e. Lot price is $500,000 plus $1,000,000 cost to build = $1,500,000 total acquisition cost. You need 20% of that, so $300,000 down payment is required.
If you already own the lot, your equity counts towards the down payment.
Reserves – 6 to 24 months of the new payment amount needs to be in your accounts at close of escrow. Retirement and stock accounts are acceptable sources. Months of reserves needed is based on the loan amount.
This loan includes financing for both the construction and permanent loan in one closing. That means you save the expense of dual loan fees and the worry of having to re-qualify for a permanent loan after the home is complete.
Interest-rate is fixed and secure from beginning to end. Construction term varies. Interest Only payments during construction!
Soft costs such as Architect and Engineer can be financed.
ADUs (accessory dwelling units) otherwise known as “Casitas” are allowed as long as they are on the plans.
“Cost-Plus” construction contracts are ONLY allowed IF there IS a maximum cost in the contract.
Tear-Downs and renovations are allowed.
“Owner-Builders” are not allowed but your contractor could hire you to do some of the work to gain some sweat equity.
During the construction period, Borrower(s) must pay all property taxes and insurance premiums.
Building a house from the ground up could be a pain if you don’t have a Loan Officer who is also a General Contractor.
NO MANUFACTURED HOMES!
Another option is to renovate an existing property and make it your own. The down payment is much less and its typically much quicker to renovate over building. Check out my Renovation page.
