*Annual Percentage Rate (APR). The 14.0365% estimated APR is based on a $417,000 construction loan at 3.99% with Bank of American Fork’s standard construction loan fees and a 4-month term.  The standard construction fees for a 4-month term are: 1.5% origination, $300 inspection, $100 appraisal review, $15 flood determination, $5 credit report (per borrower), title insurance (varies), recording (varies), and appraisal (varies).  The annual percentage rate is a measure of the cost of the loan, expressed as a yearly rate, that relates the amount and timing of value received by the consumer to the amount and timing of payments made.  In the case of a 4-month loan, the APR annualizes the fees as if they were paid three times in a year.  Subject to credit approval.  Maximum loan amount is $417,000.  Other discounts may be available if necessary for loans exceeding $417,000.  Inquire for details.  Only valid in Utah, Salt Lake, Davis, Weber, Tooele, and Wasatch counties.

An additional 2-month extension with a 0.25% extension fee may be available if necessary. 

The 1.5% construction loan origination fee applies whether the long-term loan comes from Bank of American Fork or not.  The mortgage must follow a construction loan originated on or before December 31, 2012.  Only valid in Utah, Salt Lake, Davis, Weber, Tooele, and Wasatch counties.
