Once you have made the decision to construct your dream home Lupe and our team will sit with the homeowner to discuss their homebuilding needs and what they expect in their custom home. The initial step is to locate your lot or discuss your current lot orientation to ensure that the design and layout of the home is everything you anticipated it to be. Our team will give ideas, design concepts, and assist in their preparation for building their home. We always recommend that your lot be selected before any preliminary meeting with the design or architectural firm is set.
In order to proceed forward with a construction of your dream home we must first get approved for a construction loan. The lender will require documentation to verify and substantiate your employment, credit and financial situation to assure that you have the ability to repay the loan. This documentation may consist of tax returns, recent pay stubs, bank statements, verifications of employment, bankruptcy papers and any other information the lender deems necessary.We will coordinate your mortgage financing with one of our preferred lender and we will act as an intermediary between you and the lender. Understand that the entire loan process typically takes between three and four weeks, possibly longer, depending on the particular circumstances of the loan. Loans for self-employed people, people with poor credit, or people with unusual circumstances often take longer because of the additional documentation required.Realize that once the loan is approved, the loan papers will be sent to the escrow/title company or your attorney. Once these documents are prepared, the escrow officer or attorney will contact you to set up an appointment for you to come in and sign your papers.Expect to wade through and sign a mountain of papers. Understand that from the date you sign your papers, it will be another two or three days until the loan is funded, which is when the money is transferred.Know that the loan will close, or record (with the county), one or two days after the loan has been funded. Once the loan is recorded, the transaction is complete!!!!!!
We will meet with the designer or architectural firm to discuss the layout, design,home orientation, sun orientation, tree topo, home site specifics, and finish out details of your desired home.
