How Do Construction Loans Work?

Construction loans are typically short-term loans used for the construction of a new home. At the completion of the construction, the loan can be refinanced or converted into a permanent mortgage. The homeowner is generally only required to pay interest* on payments during the construction. For construction-to-permanent loans, the loan will be converted to a permanent mortgage with a term of 15 or 30 years. At the conversion time for the loan, you can choose either a fixed-rate or adjustable rate (ARM).
