Building a New Home – Find a Builder

Once you decide to build your own home, there are several ways to find a quality builder in your area.  Contact your local chapter of the National Association of Home Builders.

Hiring a builder is much like hiring any other type of professional – you will want to work with someone who is highly qualified.  Some things to consider when interviewing a prospective builder for your project:

  • Meets state licensure and insurance requirements
  • Proven experience in building the type of residence you want
  • A solid reputation in the community, including a good rating with the Better Business Bureau
  • Check references from past clients
  • Has a permanent business address
  • Involvement in professional associations
  • Contact the state or county to verify that there is no history of legal proceedings against the company and that there are no legal proceedings pending

Once you receive the final specs from your contractor, we’ll set up a construction or construction-to-permanent loan that allows you to take necessary draws for up to 9 months.  When your home is complete, we’ll convert your loan to a permanent financing solution, eliminating the need for two separate closings and duplication of closing costs.
