How Do Construction Loan to Permanent Mortgages Work?
Construction to permanent mortgage loans are a unique variation that gives borrowers the funding to build their new home while helping them afford it over time. Generally, lenders will only grant mortgages for existing structures. Similarly, most construction loans only provide short-term financial assistance to purchase a plot of land and build on it.
Under a construction to permanent mortgage agreement, these two loans are available as a single package. The lender will provide a loan to finance a home's construction. When construction is complete, the construction loan converts into a permanent mortgage loan. Both loans have their own unique costs. Similar to a line of credit, borrowers only borrow the amount they need and accrue interest based on that value.
With Orrstown Bank, borrowers can benefit from a convenient construction to mortgage loan process. We offer two construction terms — 9 or 12 months. At the end of your selected duration, an inspection for compliance with local ordinances will confirm the home's completion. At this time, the construction loan will transfer into a separate mortgage loan with the new building as collateral.
Orrstown Bank offers construction to permanent mortgage loans to borrowers with a credit score of 680 or higher. Borrowers must intend to occupy the home and hire an outside contractor for construction. Mortgages are available with varying terms.
