* To be eligible for the mortgage loan origination fee waiver, the mortgage must satisfy and replace the construction loan on the same property and to the same borrower, and the construction loan must be originated on or before 6/30/2020. Only valid in Utah, Salt Lake, Davis, Weber, Tooele, Box Elder, Cache, Franklin, Washington, and Wasatch counties. An origination fee will still be assessed on the construction loan of 1.50% or 1.75%.

†The 3.99% rate is contingent on the borrower opening a MyRate Checking® account with Altabank prior to construction loan closing; the rate without a MyRate Checking® account is 4.49%.

‡Annual Percentage Rate (APR). These are estimated APRs based on a $510,400 construction loan at 3.99% with Altabank’s standard construction loan fees and either a 6- or 9-month term. The standard construction fees are: 1.50% (6 months) or 1.75% (9 months) origination, $750 (6 months) or $1,125 (9 months) inspection, $150 appraisal review, $15 flood determination, $5 credit report (per borrower), $250 document preparation, title insurance (varies), recording (varies), and appraisal (varies).  Payment example:  Assuming that a loan with standard fees and a balance of $510,400 was 50% disbursed for either a 6- or 9-month term, the monthly interest payments are estimated to be either $973.19 (without MyRate Checking) or $864.81 (with MyRate Checking), and the balloon payment is estimated to be $510,400.  These payment amounts do not include property taxes and hazard insurance premiums—a payment with those included would be greater.  Subject to credit approval.  Other fee considerations may be necessary for loans exceeding $510,400.  Inquire for details.

§An additional 2-month extension with a 0.25% extension fee may be available if necessary and subject to approval.

||The 1.50% or 1.75% construction loan origination fee applies regardless of whether the mortgage loan comes from Altabank. The mortgage must satisfy and replace the construction loan on the same property and to the same borrower, and the construction loan must be originated on or before 06/30/2020.  Only valid in Box Elder, Cache, Davis, Franklin, Salt Lake, Tooele, Utah, Wasatch, Washington, and Weber counties.
