Construction Financing Take Out Mortgage

“Does Your Construction Financing Plan Include a Take Out Mortgage?”

Any construction project that requires financing will have two separate elements; a construction loan and a long term mortgage.  Construction loans are used to finance the actual project, but once the project is complete, the total outstanding balance of the construction loan needs to be rolled into a longer term mortgage instrument for the finished project.

In some scenarios, the lender or a lending group provides both forms of mortgage financing and approves the builder, buyer or owner for both mortgage products prior to the commencement of construction.

In other cases, the construction mortgage is arranged through one lender and the take out mortgage is arranged through a totally separate lender who may not have any relationship with the first lender.  Its also not uncommon for construction mortgage lenders to require that the borrower be pre-approved for a term out or take out mortgage prior to any funds being disbursed for construction financing.
But there also is the scenario where you get a construction loan approved without the upfront requirement by the lender to have the take out already secured.  This is a situation you need to be wary of.  Making the assumption that your project will have to problem securing longer term financing at the completion of the project may prove to be inaccurate.  Or at the least, you can experience approval delays that will extend the period of time the construction funds are outstanding.

Small delays are likely not a problem, but if you end up taking 6 months or longer to secure a proper long term mortgage to pay out the construction loan, you could be in some trouble.

First of all, depending on the construction related financing you arrange, the cost can be significantly more on a month to month basis as compared to a long term loan.

Second, the construction lender may have penalties in place for delays that will further increase your costs and erode your cash flow.

Third, if the term out process takes too long, the lender may take action against you and try to liquidate the property to get their money back.

For standard residential construction on new builds or additions, the probability of getting a take out mortgage for the rates, terms, and timing you require are going to be pretty high, most of the time.

But when you get into the construction of commercial, industrial, and multi unit residential projects that are larger in scope, the longer term mortgage market may be harder to pin down in the time period required.

The key here is not to expose yourself to this risk in the first place and to get everything in place, both construction loan and take out mortgage, prior to commencing the project.  That way, you can more accurately plan and manage the project to completion as well as your overall budget and cash flow without having to worry about incurring financing problems at the end of the construction project.

Canadian Mortgage

Canadian Mortgage Brokers – Why Use One?

Mortgage Brokers Provide You With A Number of Benefits.

When looking at mortgage options, virtually all consumers will consider using a mortgage broker or at least want to better understand what a mortgage broker can do for them.

As the mortgage industry has expanded, brokers have become a key method for lenders to get their product into the market.

Lets face it, not all mortgage companies have the marketing budgets and branding power of the Canadian chartered banks. But when it comes to the comparability of their mortgage products to the big banks, many of the small players can have as good if not better rates and terms.

So that’s really the first major benefit of a mortgage broker … broad market access.

The mortgage broker has access to lenders you may not have even heard of, but that are still offering a mortgage product you may be interested. So instead of searching high and

low for all these different competitive offers, you have the convenience of tapping into most relevant offers through one application via a broker.

And remember that when you go into a bank to get information about a mortgage, you are only going to be looking at their programs. In order to get any type of accurate or meaningful comparison, you’re going to have to repeat the process several more times with other banks and mortgage lenders.

Another problem with the do it yourself approach is that its difficult to tell from the outside looking in, what lenders will be interested in your application.  If you make an application and get declined, how do you know which lender to go to next?

When you start applying at several places, you also will receive a credit inquiry for each application made. Not only can this be potentially damaging to your credit, it also can send out a message to next lender that you may have been declined a number of times already and are not a good risk.

If excessive credit inquiries end up lowering your credit score, you may suddenly become ineligible for certain mortgage programs that you would have otherwise qualified for.

Experienced brokers manage this situation for you by only generating one credit inquiry and reusing it for each application they make on your behalf. The best brokers will also only focus on those lenders that are most relevant to your situation, greatly increasing the potential of generating the best options quickly.

With the use of the internet, email, and phone, your communication with your broker can be done from wherever you choose and when ever its convenient to you without valuable time being lost going back and forth to a lenders place of business.

Once you have a mortgage, you will need to renew the interest rate at some point in the future. And unless you know how to shop around for comparable rates and terms, its unlikely that the existing lender is going to offer you the lowest cost option in the market, resulting in you paying higher rates.

Mortgage brokers that also do a large volume of business can have access to lower rates from lenders based on volume allowing them to offer you terms that smaller volume brokers don’t have access to.

Mortgage brokers also have the benefit of dealing with 100’s of different applications involving a multitude of different lenders. Their advice can be invaluable in getting the best deal possible and voiding less obvious things that you may not have considered on your own.

The benefits can be considerable and the draw backs, few if any.
