There are two types of construction loans: a construction-to-permanent or stand-alone construction loan. A construction-to-permanent loan provides money to build the house and is advanced in stages to the contractors as construction progresses and the balance of the loan becomes a permanent mortgage once the project is completed and the homeowner moves in. The stand-alone construction loan consists of two loans. The first loan covers all the construction costs. The homeowner obtains a second loan or a mortgage to pay off the debt accrued from the construction of the home.
