The Construction to Permanent Financing Difference

When choosing to build a home, the typical process requires two loans: a construction loan and then a permanent financing option. The construction to permanent financing loan creates a seamless one-time, fixed-rate loan option that allows you to only take out one loan. When the construction part of the home-building process is complete, the loan is rolled into a permanent financing solution.
