Illinois New Construction Mortgage
Conventional Construction Loan
This special loan gives you the opportunity and flexibility to construct a new home. During the construction/draw period, only interest payments are due on the drawn balance, then may be closed with a wide variety of Smart Mortgage Centers loan options once the build is complete. Our construction draw mortgages can be used to build primary residences up to $3M, and secondary homes up to $2.5M.
FHA Construction Loan
The FHA One-Time Close (OTC) loan is a product that allows borrowers to combine financing for a lot purchase, construction and permanent mortgage into one first mortgage loan. Ideally suited for borrowers who are purchasing new construction, the FHA OTC loan offers the benefits of low money down financing, competitive interest rates and one closing for all financing. And we have now simplified the program even further, with a single administration fee which includes the construction interest, as well as such things as:
- Construction draws
- Title updates
- Any necessary loan modifications
- Construction underwriting
- Construction closing coordination

My wife and I had the pleasure of being assigned to Ryan Sr. Loan Officer. He was polite, patient, professional and most importantly prepared throughout whole process. Ryan crunched numbers with impressive accuracy, explained documents line by line when we had questions and let us know what to expect so there wouldn’t be any surprises. Ryan is very knowledgeable and had no problem answering questions and sharing very important details which made us feel good about picking Smart Mortgage. Thank you Ryan for all your help and advice.
We applied with other lenders but had been turned down, but Smart mortgage worked with us so we can have our dream home! Our lender Jon, walked us through the process and was very helpful in answering questions promptly. He made the process easy for us. Jon always kept in daily communication with us, so there were no surprises! He made himself available anytime…..even when he was on vacation! The online submission of documents was very easy. Overall we think Smart Mortgage is an excellent company willing to work with people with blemished credit and give them the opportunity to live their dream of home ownership.
We worked with Brian who picked up our loan after our original broker quit working with us. I’ve never seen a more determined, hard working, and dedicated broker in action! Brian was amazing! We could write a book about our experience, bottom line… I wouldn’t work with anyone else or refer to anyone else. He gets it done!
I highly recommend working with Jon for a home loan product. He handled our jumbo loan with the highest integrity and detail. In particular, he helped navigate the legal details associated with our land trust. Our experience was exceptional and will work with Jon in the future.
I highly recommend choosing Brian as your Mortgage guy to make sure you get the house you want. He will make sure everything is done and not only in a timely manner but it gets done correctly. Your closing will go so smooth and there are no surprises with Him! He will be with you from beginning till the End! You will not be disappointed with his service!
Anthony exceeded our expectations in all aspects,going above and beyond he kept us in the loop throughout the whole process and in finding us ways to keep our final expenses as low as possible I feel we got the best deal we could have. We are very happy with our choice.
Anthony was great to work with and was very thorough with explaining the whole process. He was a huge help with any questions we had. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.
Worked with Jon on a refi and it was terrific. My situation was a little bit complicated based on a few moving parts, however, the process went very smooth and all my options were clearly explained as we went along. I’m very pleased with the outcome.
Very impressed. Jon walked me thru a difficult refi of 2 properties simultaneously. Always a quick response to any of my concerns. Would definitely recommend working with them.
The very first time I spoke with Patty on the phone, I knew I would work with her to find my mortgage.
