Low Credit Score Construction Loans

Construction loans are loans that are made to the consumer for the purpose of building a new home. Construction loans are great for the consumer who already owns land, the land can often be used as a way to qualify for the loan.

Value of Home

Construction loans are made on a project that has not yet been completed, so the lender basis much of the loan qualifications on the value of the completed home. An appraisal will determine the value of the home once it is completed. A loan-to-value calculation will be done in order to insure that the lender is covered in the event of non-payment by the borrower. LTV is the percentage of the of the home minus any mortgage amount. The lower the LTV percentage, the less risk exists for the lender, so loan terms may be more favorable.

Low Credit Score Jumbo Loans

A low credit score jumbo mortgage is a loan that exceeds the conforming loan limits. If the loan value is more than $417,000, then that is considered a jumbo loan. Jumbo loans are typically used for large, single-family homes, and they have a different underwriting process and come with a slightly altered set of guidelines. Jumbo mortgages are called non-conforming because they exceed the conforming amount that can be backed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, the federal government-sponsored entities that guarantee mortgages. Non-conforming loans that exceed conforming limits are not backed by the government entities Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Jumbo loans are backed by private investors and have slightly different guidelines. The conforming loan limit in New Jersey is any mortgage over $417,000, so home buyers in New Jersey seeking mortgage loans higher than this loan value can apply for a low credit score jumbo home loan.

New Jersey Mortgage Loans

Some lenders often want you to think that homebuyers have to make down payments of at least 20 percent. In fact, some loan programs allow qualified people to buy homes with no down payment at all. Other loan programs allow down payments as small as 3 - 5 percent.

The Department of Veterans Affairs guarantees zero-down VA mortgages for qualified borrowers: veterans, active-duty service members and certain members of the National Guard and Reserves.

Lenders say they often dispel the mistaken idea that homebuyers have to make down payments of at least 20 percent. In fact, some loan programs allow qualified people to buy homes with no down payment at all. Other loan programs allow down payments as small as 3 percent or 3.5 percent.

Adjustable to Fixed Rate Apartment Loan

Loan Description Here's a unique loan.  The Adjustable to Fixed rate loan.  It's called the 7/6 ARM.  The loan starts as an adjustable rate loan and in years two through six you can fix the rate for seven or ten years on the market conditions.  The rates start in the low 3% range and the Lifetime caps are in the mid 7% range. You could actually use this loan like a Bridge loan, only less expensive!  Let's say your investment strategy is to take an undervalued multifamily property and over the course of 2 years raise the property standards and subsequently the cash flow to resell.  In the Second Year on a normal 5 year fixed rate loan,  you could have a 4% or 3% prepayment penalty on the unpaid balance.  For a Bridge loan both the interest rates and fees are much higher as well.  One other hassle free benefit is that there are NO TAX RETURNS required from the borrower.  They will scrutinize a Personal Financial Statement, Schedule of Real Estate Owned and Bank/Stock Statements. I invite you to call me regarding this program and see if it might fit your apartment financing strategy.

Commercial Property Loans


This product comes in two flavors; investor and owner-occupied properties. Both are being scrutinized quite heavily so prepare yourself for a full documentation loan. Meaning, three years complete tax returns must be submitted.   For investor properties the maximum loan to value (LTV) that a bank will finance is somewhere between 65% to 75% LTV.   Some banks may only go 50% for retail properties.   Interest rates will vary depending on the strength of the borrower.  The property must have at least a 1.25 to 1.35 Debt To Service Coverage Ratio as well. For owner-occupied properties, we can go a bit higher on the LTV, up to 90% financing in some cases because we add in an SBA component. It's not as scary as it seems. But be prepared to do some paperwork. Contact us today to regarding your industrial, office or retail property.
