Acting as an Owner Builder?
Using your own labor and subcontractors?
We specialize in 12-month self build construction loans, also known as owner builder loans. We do not require you to hire a general contractor. Monthly payments are interest only and are calculated from the date of each draw. Upon completion, you will refinance through your favorite mortgage lender. There is no prepayment penalty, and its ok if you have already started construction.
To get started, simply fill in our Qualification Questionnaire. We will then reply with our free evaluation including loan costs and application instructions.
