Built to make it easy!

Let us help you finance your dream home. GTE will work with you to make the construction loan process simple and streamlined. Our 5/5 Adjustable Rate Mortgage will provide you with a competitive, low starting rate as you build. Then, for homes under $417,000, you'll also enjoy the benefit of converting your adjustable rate construction loan to a great-rate, fixed 30 year loan once building is completed. Plus, there's only 1 closing!

Great Benefits:

  • Start with a low-rate Adjustable Rate Loan. ARMs typically have a lower rate than fixed rate loans. Enjoying a lower rate while you are building can be a big benefit!
  • For homes $417,000 or less, once you’re done with construction, you’ll have the option to convert to a fixed rate.*
  • Enjoy interest-only payments for 12 months.
  • A single closing for building and moving in.
  • Plus, enjoy lender-paid mortgage insurance during the construction period. If you have less than 20% down, most lenders will require insurance. With GTE, it's on us for with the 5/5 ARM product for homes under $417,000 - yay to saving money! If you choose to convert to a fixed rate loan for your permanent, post-construction loan, mortgage insurance will be factored in if necessary. 

Other Features:

  • This loan is also available for larger lending amounts including the Mini Jumbo (Homes $417,001 - $750,000) as well as the Jumbo ($750,001 - $1,250,000). Best of all, once construction is complete, if the rate  is lower at the time you're ready to move-in, we will honor the current construction conversion rate, so you get the best deal! Conversion to a fixed rate loan is only available on homes under $417,000. 
  • Rate caps = A rate cap is a limit on how much the rate can change at the end of each adjustment period over the life of the loan. With a 5/5 ARM, the rate can only change every 5 years, which means added stability. Plus, the rate can only increase by a maximum of 2% each adjustment period. 
  • Index = 1 Year Libor
  • Margin = 2%
  • *Fixed rate conversion option available on a loan amount up to $417,000.
