Financing Your New Home

Financing can be one of the most stressful parts of buying a home. In an effort to streamline the process for you, we have selected a group of trusted, knowledgeable, lenders as well as put together this basic outline to address some common concerns. We have worked with many lenders throughout our years and we have found that finding the right professional who is knowledgeable and honest helps the building process go smoothly for you, your sales agent and us. Below you will find some of our trusted lenders. These are tried and true, local professionals that have always gone above and beyond the call of duty for our homeowners.


Getting Started

Most homebuyers choose to start by requesting a mortgage pre-qualification from a lender. The home builder mortgage lender will review basic credit and income information to give you an estimate of the loan amount you will qualify for. Once you choose a home and enter into a purchase contract, you begin the next stage of financing.


Mortgage Options

The home builder mortgage process begins with a full loan application and more detailed credit history. Your mortgage lender will advise you of the specific home builder mortgage rates options available to you so you can decide on the best loan for you.
