How to Get Construction Financing

Are you interested in a construction mortgage? There are two types of construction mortgages that you can go for: completion construction mortgage and progress draw construction loan.

Completion construction mortgage

You should apply for this loan when you are purchasing your home from a qualified builder at a fixed price upon completion of the building.

There are two types of this loan:

All-in one construction loan: this is a simple loan that offers you a one rate for both the construction process and the financing that comes at the end. When you take this loan you need to repay it within one year. You should note that you have to pay a penalty if you go over the time limit.

Purchase plus improvement: this is the one that you get when you buy a home that needs to be taken good care of. The contractor needs to keep on making the improvements that you ask him/her to do and you should only accept the building once you are satisfied with the improvements.

Both of these construction loans have a number of features:

The builder has to own the lot where the home is to be built
The builder can request for money only when the home is 100% complete.
The lender may require an appraisal before, during, and after the construction. This is to ensure that the home is worth the amount being mortgaged
You need to make a down payment-which can be made in a series of installments
Since the loan is almost similar to a resale property mortgage, the mortgage agent won’t require an administration fee in order to arrange this type of financing.

Before you are given the loan, you need to present a number of documents to the lender. The documents include:

Copy of building contract that has been signed by you and the contractor
House plan and working drawings
Site plan that shows the legal description and dimension of the property
An appraisal that indicates the final value of the home after construction

Progress draw construction loan

This is ideal when you are planning of construction your home using your own general contractor. You apply for funds at three different stages of the loan: when the building is 35-40%, 65-70% and 100% complete. You should note that the interest rates of this loan are higher than that of a traditional mortgage.

When applying for the loan you need to present a number of documents that include:

Copy of land contract
A resume confirming that you have good knowledge of the construction process
Copy of all sub-contracts which confirm the construction costs.

The Truth Behind The Network Marketing Industry

The Multi Level Marketing (MLM) Industry popularly known as the Network Marketing industry, is indeed a very simple and profitable industry but sadly with a lot of negative feedback. The truth is that you can make a lot of money in the MLM industry. A lot of ordinary people have built businesses that provide passive income streams for them and their families and friends, who are in their network for life! The beauty about having a business that provide passive income streams is that you can get to enjoy life doing whatever you want or decide. All that is required is a few years of smart and dedicated work. Today though, this has been made a lot easier as some MLM companies have gone online. There is an MLM company today that operates entirely on an e-commerce platform! This means that you can reach more people using your website or social media to sell almost any product and to anyone anywhere in the world. The network marketing industry is a $167 billion industry churning out millions having huge passive income streams.

I am a partner with one MLM firm that is a 100% e-commerce based here in Nigeria. This means that I can actually do the business from home. With proper application of e-commerce concepts, you can indeed earn a stream of passive incomes for life! This is however not a get-rich-quick scheme. Success in the MLM industry entails following a set of professional guidelines and being consistent. Many people in the MLM industry fail to apply basic guidelines needed to start and grow their own MLM business. Many fail to realize that their MLM business should be handled as a real business where you will be required to recruit a team of people that believe in your mission and vision.

The network marketing industry is a 167 billion Dollar industry and about 91 million people are involved in the network marketing industry around the world today. The industry is now booming in the rest of the world because it is almost the only recession proof industry! During the economic recession that occurred in the world in 2008 and 2009 and the one before that in 1998, it was the only Industry that was growing. While other industries like the automobile and financial industries were either collapsing, downsizing on the number of employees or cutting down salaries, the network marketing industry was getting larger. This is why a lot of people have shifted to Network Marketing.

Even great men and thinkers are beginning to endorse the MLM business model. Bill Gates has been quoted saying that if he had another chance to start up, Microsoft would have adopted the network marketing model. Little wonder the Network marketing Industry continues to grow at an unexpected rate. This is especially true in the United States that recorded a growth from $13 billion in 1992 to over $132 billion in 2010; more than 82 million new people have joined the Network Marketing Industry in the past 20 years! In fact, it is now estimated that over 15,800,000 distributors in the United States alone now participate, full- or part-time, in Network Marketing-and these numbers continue to grow.

After 20 year, the Network Marketing Industry still fits today’s hot trends-home-based businesses, entrepreneurship, and self-reliance-and in Nigeria, the growth is beginning to catch up with the rest of the world. My articles continue to educate its readers how they too can move beyond economic security to economic prosperity by taking advantage of this wealth creating industry.
