  • VHDA:

  • Construction Perm:

     

     

    We have a two time closing CP loan.  The benefits of using construction permanent financing:

     

    If you are a builder:

    1)      You are not tying up your construction lines of credit so having the borrower finance the project frees up your construction lines to do other projects.

     

    If you are a homeowner:

    1)      Since builder is not carrying construction loan costs, this may result in a leaner contract price for you.

    2)      Construction loan proceeds will be disbursed based on percentage of completion so you will pay  interest only on the amount disbursed – ie, it will start low but increase as the construction project progresses.  Low construction interest rate of 6.5% with 1 point or 4.5% with no points.  If you choose first rate option, the 1point will be refunded to you when house is completed and permanent loan is closed with VBMC.

    3)      Any “cash” downpayment from you will be collected up front at closing.  We will disburse from your funds first before tapping into the loan amount – again this saves you interest.

    4)      Construction interest payments are “auto drafted” from a checking account each month – no extra bill to remember to pay.

    5)      We disburse all construction funds to you unless you want us to disburse to the builder directly – you decide how much control you want to maintain.  If it is more convenient to have funds requested and disbursed directly to the builder, you can also request that option.

    6)      At each draw, we will request a title update and an inspection by a third party bank inspector.  We will only disburse construction funds for work in place with clear title.  We will coordinate the inspections, title and calculate the amount to be disbursed based on a percentage of completion.

    7)      Tax benefits for the construction interest.

    8)       We have partnered with attorneys, title companies, appraisers to streamline and reduce duplication of costs for the construction and permanent loan closing. 

    9)      Flexibility in selecting a permanent loan product – choose from any of our mortgage loan products.

    10)   Extended rate locks are available at an additional cost on select programs to protect you from rising interest rates during the construction of your home.

    11)   We review and approve the builder – this way you can move forward with confidence about the builder you have selected and their ability to complete the project.

    12)   We embrace the village philosophy of being a neighbor and not a number.  We will guide you through the financing piece so you can focus on the fun stuff – building your new home.   We will be with you throughout the process.    We really appreciate your business, love sharing the excitement, and are grateful for the opportunity to help!
