  • Information lenders need from you
Excerpt from Report:

"...Q. Do you charge higher interest rates and fees for owner-builders?

A. It comes back to a feeling of comfort with the individual. With a contractor you have a couple of things you can fall back on. We require insurance for accidents on the job sites. We are also covered with the fact that the contractor wants to maintain good relationships with the bank. An individual who is going through this for one time we have no control on. Time constraints.

A. We do a permanent construction mortgage. All-in-one. On all construction loans, we charge street rates and add a half a point. We do 6 months of construction, and interest only. End construction in six months, get final billing in seventh and pay principal and interest starting in the eighth month. We can do longer construction loans.

A. We charge same for everybody. We do give a break to larger contractors. Our normal origination fee is 1.5% We do some builders at 1%

A. No. You might have to pay more if the package has less quality or integrity. They have to convince me why they have the skill and ability to perform as the owner-builder. I analyze what they do as a living to see if they can be sufficiently available to supervise.

A. No. Two points over prime and could be lower. Two points origination fee, and that could be 1.5 points.

A. One point higher. But we are lower than "prime plus" You might pay more interest and not pay points. We have a construction and permanent in one loan, with one closing. Interest only during construction. When done, if rates are lower then, you get a reduction in rates for no charge..."

Sample Reader Tip Excerpts:

"I was in a hurry because I heard interest rates were going up, but then I thought, interest rates go up and down, don't let that drive you. You can always refinance later."
Cliff T.
Santa Fe, NM

"I had a short-term loan for construction, saved $5,000."
Lynn H.
Tremonton, UT

"I've been making loans for 20 years, and I can tell you that banks don't care how much they lend for construction if local resale values support it. My budget for my project comes out at $98 a square foot. But the market is at around $140 a foot right now. I could easily get that much, so I'm throwing in a salary for myself as contractor during construction."
Bob O.
