I am a
construction loan mortgage broker and represent 22 of the largest construction lenders in the
market. As a construction loan broker, I work for my client and not the
construction loan lender, taking the time to
understand your situation and placing your construction loan with the lender whose programs match your needs. I give you unbiased
advice and support throughout the construction loan process. Construction lending is a specialized
part of mortgage banking and most brokers do not have the experience
or construction loan information to guide you through this complex process. I
have given you some basic construction loan information here but please call to discuss your project. At the fundamental
level, construction lenders offer two types of construction loan product characterized by how they
base interest rates during the construction phase. I refer to these
approaches as “One Step” and “Two Step”
