What type of down payment is required? – Down payment on traditional construction loans can be confusing to understand. Most construction loans in Texas require 20% down of actual cost.  Meaning you will need 20% of the cost of the build as well as the land cost.  Equity in the land typically can be used to count towards this is you have already purchased.  The One Time Close is different in that we close and fund the loan as if the property is done at the time of closing using loan programs that require much less down.  This allows consumers that normally would not have the traditional equity to still build their dream home with as little as 3.5% down on FHA and Zero down on VA, subject to VA limits.

How does a One Time Close construction loan work? –  You apply the same as you would for a traditional mortgage, and once we qualify you for the term and amount, we begin the construction qualification.  This requires, plans and specs, cost breakdown, build contract, subject to appraisal and completed builder package.  Your builder will have to complete the builders package and be approved. Once all of this is complete, the loan will go to final underwrite, then close and funding.  Then the construction begins.  The amount of time this takes varies depending on how long it takes you to complete each task with you builder.

Can I roll in closing costs? – In many cases the closing costs are covered by the loan. This depends on projected appraised value of the completed home.

Can I get a conventional construction loan? – Yes you can, if you have equity in the land or if you are willing to put the required cash down.  This would fall into a two time close, where we will approve you for the final and then refer to one of our local construction bank partners to provide the interim construction.
