Construction / Permanent Mortgage Loans
A Construction-Permanent loan is designed for borrowers who choose to finance the construction of a new home, or who want to build a significant addition or make major renovations.
The loan consists of two phases:
Construction and Permanent. During the Construction Phase, the borrower is charged interest only. When you apply, you can choose to lock in your rate, which means that your interest payments will be calculated based on the permanent rate for your mortgage loan. Or, you may accept a floating rate, which means your payment can vary during this phase. A CCU Mortgage Specialist can help you choose the option that's right for you. When construction is complete, the loan is made into a Permanent Loan.

These mortgage loan programs constitute first mortgage liens secured by the home and property. The down payment is determined by the Loan to Value ratio. (80% LTV = 20% down payment). Our usual credit criteria apply. Loan rates are based on credit history, loan terms, and borrower qualifications. Contact CCU to determine your rate. * The Interest-Only payment period requires you to make minimum interest payments during the construction phase. At the end of the interest-only construction period, your loan will convert to a fully amortized loan, and you will begin making payments towards both principal and interest, which will increase your monthly payment, possibly substantially, even if you have a fixed interest rate. Always consider making more than the minimum payment during the interest-only period to begin reducing principal. ** A Jumbo loan is defined as a loan amount of $417,001 or greater.
