Construction Loan Program:

One-Close Construction Loan Program

Portfolio

One-Close Construction Loan Program incorporates a construction period of 6, 9 or 12 months followed by a fully amortized loan term with a single closing.

 

Clear Lending offers Construction Loan Program a conforming construction-to-permanent loan with 6-, 9- or 12-month construction periods with only one closing. During construction, program allows borrower make interest-only payments on the funds disbursed along with taxes and insurance. Borrower must carry a builder’s risk policy until the property is eligible for standard homeowner insurance policy.

Once the house is complete, the mortgage loan note is modified and so its monthly payment from interest only with taxes and insurance to principal, interest, taxes and insurance. Mortgage insurance will be activated and the premium included in the modified monthly payment. This process will not affect those loans for which an escrow waiver is obtained.

Soft costs (architectural, engineering and permit fees) may be financed, however, loan closing costs may not. Full third party builder contracts only.

    Thank you so much Joan for helping me get approved and close on my beautiful house after being denied by AMCAP and CORNERSTONE over silly stuff. I signed a contract with Stormi Harris from NEWMARK homes and she pretty much requested me to get approved with their preferred lenders. First, I went to AMCAP and later I was sent to CORNERSTONE. Both first approved me but after waiting and a second review or something like that denied me for not having 2-year employment history with same employer and for a couple of silly old issues on credit. At that point, I had given NEWMARK homes over $13,000 which sometimes as per all communications I felt builder I was not going to get back if I didn’t get approved. Then I after searching on google for local lenders I was lucky enough to find Clear Lending and after sending an approval request I got a call from Broker Joan Gallardo. I advised him about the urgency and after I sent him my documents requested he gave me peace of mind by telling me I had 90% chance of being able to close. Joan was so clear and precise with what to expect I felt I was on the right place. After few conditions we had to clear I got the good news I was Clear-To-Close. I am so thankful I want everyone to know this guy rocks and if you are buying a brand new house maybe you want to avoid builder lenders if you don’t have everything perfect. Loan Officers will tell you everything is ok but as I lived it I can see they had no idea what underwriting may come back with after waiting and waiting for an approval. Soo scary!!!! Thanks Clear Lending for saving me from a huge loss and helping realize my dreams. I will refer you all my friends or whoever ask me if I know a good lender!!!

    Joan,

    Thank you so very much!!! I'm still in a state of shock and disbelief... I really did not expect to close on this deal...You & Eleana have been wonderful and I'm so grateful for all you did to guide me through this entire adventure. I hope to meet you face-to-face someday.

    I don't even know where to start with just how much Joan has helped us going above and beyond of his service. I was impressed with how he handled eveything from beginning til we closed, and made sure he contacted us about every detail necessary. I could reach him even late nights and weekends where he could be spending time with family but instead, he was available to assist us. I highly recommend Joan to anyone and I promise you, you won't regret it.
