The Most Popular Construction Loan Program:

Blanket Construction Loan:

The Blanket Construction Loan program allows a customer the flexibility of financing up to 100% of the cost to build a custom home. The construction loan is secured by both the existing home, and the home under construction.

  • The equity in the existing home is used in place of a traditional cash down payment on the home being built.
  • As the new home nears completion the existing home is sold
  • The proceeds from the sale are used to pay down the construction loan so it can be modified into the permenant loan.
  • Interest on the construction loan is based on WSJ Prime
  • The permanent loan can either be a fixed or adjustable rate.
  • A number of extended rate lock programs are available
  • One-time close feature reduces closing costs.

Mortage Calculator

This calculator can be used to figure out monthly payments of a home mortgage loan, based on the home’s sale price, the term of the loan desired, buyer’s down payment percentage, and the loan’s interest rate. This calculator factors in PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) for loans where less than 20% is put as a down payment. Also taken into consideration are the town property taxes, and their effect on the total monthly mortgage payment.
